The work of Grünberg Patterson is supported by three basic components: a respectful, collaborative relationship; the resilient strength of the human spirit; and strengthening family and communities. In our practice, we do many kinds of work with many kinds of people.
A Respectful, Collaborative Relationship
Ethical, caring and safe relationships form the fabric of a rich and joyful life, therefore, individual and community healing go hand in hand. We believe in the healing power of a therapeutic relationship, where clients can feel valued and empowered to envision, practice and create change. Creating this relationship is the starting point for therapy.
In all aspects of our work — therapy, assessment, consultation and education — we are committed to our clients and to the bonds of family, friendship and community that sustain them. We are proud of the way that we, as a practice, contribute to community health.
The Resilient Strength of the Human Spirit
We honour the creativity, diversity, resilience and strength of our clients. We believe that human beings have the ability to grow and to thrive. We honour the diversity of spiritual and personal beliefs, cultural backgrounds, personalities, expressive styles, and other resources that our clients bring to this work.
Strengthening Family and Communities
Because ethical, caring and safe relationships form the fabric of a rich a joyful life, individual, family and community healing go hand-in-hand. In all aspects of our work (therapy, assessment, consultation and education) we are committed to our clients and to the bonds that sustain them – family, friendship and community. We are proud of the way that we as a practice contribute to the health of our communities.
