Our Philosophy

We nurture a community of professionals who provide excellent mental health services and training for all.

  • We are the foundation of the work we do. Learning and growth continues for the lifespan of our career. We take every opportunity to learn through conversation and collaboration, training and education and from the stories and experiences of our clients. For the team at Artesian Collaborative, developing as providers means getting to know our strengths and weaknesses intimately so we can utilize and protect from them for the growth of the group. We emphasize self-care, community care and meeting together regularly. We strive for mutual growth and development for all the organizations and individuals we work with.

  • We strive for a positive feedback loop; healthy people in healthy workplaces & families adding to the overall health of our communities and society which leads to healthy people. As an organization we recognize that our culture, communities and selves are in-process.  Our goal may not be accomplished in our lifetime. It will require active engagement. It will require sacrifice. It will require a team.

  • The hard work and sacrifice will be worth it.

As a team, we aspire to…

  • Create a business that embodies the values of growth through authenticity and community, emphasizing equity throughout its processes and structure.  

  • Develop a business model that can compensate its workers fairly while also allowing them to do work that is inspiring and life-giving.

  • Increase access to the skills and knowledge found in Clinical Psychology, Sociology and the counseling fields by providing services in non-traditional settings.
