Our Staff

Our staff members are human first. That means that we firmly believe in the importance of connection and goodness of fit in therapy. We practice from approaches that emphasize the development of authentic relationships. We believe that therapy can change lives – by helping people take risks in the context of safe, real, appropriately challenging relationships. Carl Rogers had it right  – when we feel accepted within a relationship we value, we can find the courage to take risks and make changes.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change – Carl Rogers
