We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of each therapist and client. Our practice is committed to cultivating an environment where everyone is treated with respect, compassion, and understanding.


In our commitment to providing the best care, we value continuous growth and learning. We seek to provide a wide array of internal learning opportunities through regular clinical consults, didactics, and continuing education events. We value learning opportunities across a multitude of clinical areas to ensure that we provide holistic and culturally responsive care.


We recognize the privilege we hold to work in the private sector where we serve clients from diverse backgrounds who are looking to improve their mental wellness. We are grateful to work alongside dedicated individuals in a strong and reputable organization with an abundance of support in our work.

We strive for excellence in all we do. From therapy services, to leadership, education and training, human resources, billing, intake and admin, we hire talented and dedicated individuals
to fulfill all roles. We continuously work on improving all processes and systems to ensure that the practice runs in an efficient manner to best suit the needs of clients and clinicians.


At Cityscape Counseling, kindness is key. Kindness in the way hat we communicate with one another, give others the benefit of the doubt, and make decisions, is valued and expected at all levels and in all interactions among support staff, therapists, and clients.
