What We Believe

We believe that mental health is important for happiness and success and we believe that good quality mental health care should be available and accessible to families of all backgrounds. We believe that quality psychological testing leads to the best treatment recommendations and outcomes for adults and children. We believe that all individuals possess valuable strengths. We believe that a child's education is an important part of their life. We believe that children need nurturing and understanding to achieve their full potential. We believe that diversity (cultural/linguistic/gender/neurodiversity) is to be valued.
