Our Values, Vision & Mission Statement
At the heart of Maria Droste Counseling Services are four VALUES that provide the foundation of our Mission:
Acceptance, Respect, Compassion and Healing
Acceptance of oneself is the cornerstone of the ability to respect oneself so that one can respect others, which allows for compassionate action which then promotes healing. We live these values first in ourselves so that we can become a healing presence for our clients in our words and actions. These are the values cultivated, practiced, and lived by our founders and we are privileged to follow them. Our individual training as mental health professionals and healers is strengthened by this active, embodied foundation of lived-values. All of this works together to support our VISION: Bringing Hope to Life. We cannot offer compassion to anyone if we ourselves do not live compassion, first, in ourselves.
The Maria Droste Counseling Services Mission Statement: “To provide professional counseling and holistic therapies with respect and compassion so that each person may recognize his/her individual worth and find reconciliation with oneself and with others.”
