Four core values guide our work
As we engage with our clients we seek to do so with sincere humility—with an appreciation for the vulnerability that comes with therapeutic encounters and an awareness that while we serve as guides and sojourners, our clients are the agents of change.
From a place of humility, we move closer with curiosity—with a commitment to deepen our understanding of others and the world as they know it, and intention to nurture both the self-compassion and the courage that clients need to face the challenges and possibilities of change.
Integrity keeps us true to ourselves and our mission, to our clients and stakeholders, to the standards of care and professionalism in our field. Integrity requires personal and organizational wellness, which we nurture through a supportive community, robust training and supervision, and overall promoting a positive employee experience.
If humility is our starting point, excellence is our goal. Aided by the creativity and clarity that curiosity and integrity inspire, we strive to bring our best to each encounter and task. Ultimately, we want EMBRACE to be a place where we never stop growing.
