Guiding Principles

We embrace these principles in our lives and are committed to help you do the same in yours.

We know relationships are the spirit of life.  We will nurture meaningful connections based on what is important to you.

We believe in choices.  We guide a process of informed choice through avenues of supported decision making.  We do this by offering information, guidance and resources.  We believe choices are individualized, unique and result in opportunities for growth and reflection.

We take the time to listen.  We listen by using more than our ears.  We use our eyes, our hearts and our intuition.  What's important to you matters to us and defines our role.  We listen to what you want to communicate and we respect what you don't.

We are committed to learning and growing.  We maintain a strong contact with others around the world to share best practices.  We learn from you, keep teaching us.

We are strong, determined and won't give up.  We are committed to exploring all possibilities and find what works for you.  We are here to help.

We honor each person's uniqueness.  We believe your individuality guides the support we offer – you are safe to be who you are.

We never stop dreaming.  We hold a vision of greater possibilities. 

We are creative and resourceful.  We are innovators.  We think within and beyond the box by drawing on our collective gifts.
