We respect and acknowledge the vital aspects of your life and take a “whole you” approach to our work. We use empathy, compassion, and curiosity to better understand you and your needs. Our approach to practice and to life can be summed up in the words of the poet Kahlil Gibran, "No human relation gives one possession in another—every two souls are absolutely different. In friendship or in love, the two side by side raise hands together to find what one cannot reach alone."
