Our Values

Person centered – we believe everything starts and ends with you. Our focus is to help you achieve what you want to achieve and to use whatever tools are at our disposal to help you get there.

Ethical Integrity – we operate at the highest of ethical practice and are transparent in that endeavour. We believe in “saying what we do and doing what we say.”

Compassion – as a wise person once said “no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.”  The process of helping starts and ends with the foundation of compassion that develops a safe, trusting relationship from which to explore and discovery solutions neither of us could discover alone.

Authentic – as wounded healers, we have struggled on our own and bring everything we are to the helping relationship. None of us are “perfect” or ‘have all the answers.”  Instead, we leverage our own humanness to your advantage to develop strategies that are uniquely your own.

Lifelong Learning – as helpers, we understand that personal and professional development is a process, not a destination. As professionals, we are committed to lifelong learning that informs our ability to help. We are also tenacious about our personal development.  Healing wounds, evolving and transforming ourselves and our relationships that reflect our integrity and commitment to the helping process.
