Owls’ Nest North Therapy Joint is a collection of like-minded mental health practitioners and a safe, comfortable space we’ve created for self-expression and learning. We are sensitive to your needs and comfort and are committed to practicing in the community in which we exist.
We believe that it’s no longer enough to rely on our local and national social service organizations to care for our communities, as evidenced by dwindling programs for struggling and marginalized people, and that for-profit enterprise must step up to gather the slack left by these agencies. Our intention is to foster a shared sense of community responsibility and social consciousness.
How will we accomplish that, you ask?
First: by considering and recognizing the social and cultural contexts of every client we work with and not mistaking related factors as “problems” but simply pieces of the complex work of art that is you.
Second: by actively educating and challenging ourselves with regard to these factors and remaining open and humble to your corrections where we don’t have it quite right.
Third: by adopting the stance that we are all equally important parts of a whole and that our relationship is one of collaboration, not of an “unwell client and expert healer” dynamic.
And fourth: by promoting the notion that people care about one another and are not only willing, but eager, to support each other toward the end of a healthier community.
As such, we offer a sliding scale to those who aren’t able to pay our full fees (see individual provider pages for more info). For those who are insured or have the means to pay full fees, they can be secure in the knowledge that they are supporting others in their community grow by supporting socially conscious business practices.
