We believe in the importance of collaboration. Joining our practice means you're entering into a practice where individuals work together for a common purpose. Collaboration enables us to not only achieve a defined goal of providing care that meets the multifaceted needs of our clients, It also means we value supporting each other in doing so.
The care we provide is based on actual observation and treatment of our clients. Clinical psychology is the psychological specialty that provides continuing and comprehensive mental and behavioural health care for individuals, couples, families, and groups; consultation; training, education and supervision; and research-based practice.
As a group, our practice consists of clinicians who are providing care in the same facility. We all have different specialties, which enables us the opportunity to collaborate and consult with others and refer clients when needed. Our practice grows based on the needs of our clients and not the other way around.
We are a trauma informed practice. We believe in the importance of providing a space that is safe, comforting and consistent. The work we do is client centred. We ensure our clients have a firm understanding of what it means to engage in this work by being clear about consent continuously throughout our work.
Acceptance involves acknowledging and embracing the full range of our thoughts and emotions rather than trying to avoid, deny, or alter them. Acceptance is an essential part of our services it means we are meeting you where you are.
Respect is defined as “to be treated with regard, concern, to protect an individual’s privacy; to be sensitive to cultural differences; to allow an individual to make choices” Furthermore, dignity is defined as “To be treated with honor, integrity, and courtesy; to be addressed in a manner that is not supercilious or patronizing; to be treated as an equal or treated in a way anyone would want to be treated." Without respect you cannot achieve safety, without safety you cannot work on acceptance.
