PHILOSOPHY

Our mission is to be the best choice for children and families, adolescents and young adults,
and women looking for behavioral and mental health care in the Naperville area.
To accomplish this we are guided by the following professional beliefs.

FAMILIES ARE THE SOIL FROM WHICH WE ALL GROW.

We seek to understand how family members relate to each other. There is a strong two-way influence between family interactions and how children, adolescents, and young adults develop.


CHILDREN AND FAMILIES ARE ALWAYS IN DEVELOPMENT.

Just as children are growing, parents and families are too. We seek to understand how this all fits together for you.


WE ARE AN EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE.

This means we know and use treatments that are proven through research to yield the most effective outcomes in the shortest period of time. When we finish our work together, you will have learned specific skills to use on your own. 


POSITIVE FOCUS IS EVERYTHING.

Symptoms surface when development goes awry. Rather than only focusing on what is wrong, it is important to focus on what needs to be right and how to make that happen. With this approach, development gets back on track and problems subside.


YOU WILL FEEL RESPECTED.

You will feel a strong alliance with us as we work with you and your family.


WE MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO MISSING LINKS.

As specialists whose job it is to know development inside and out, it is our job to look at the total picture. Sometimes we identify needs that call for other highly trained specialists. It’s our job to make those observations and professional recommendations for you.
