VALUES

PEOPLE

Ethos has a people-first, principle-driven approach that puts patients and team-members above all else, always

PARTNERSHIP

we work collaboratively with patients to create meaningful connections that positively impact their lives. Throughout our system, the Ethos team partners across all levels of care to ensure long-term patient success

PURPOSE

everything from the design of our spaces to our clinical programming is created with a specific intention

CLINICAL APPROACH

Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessment

Through diagnostic assessment comprised of proven psychometric tools, we seek to understand both the challenges alongside the strengths and opportunities that surround every individual. Assessments may take the form of a digital screening, a 90-minute initial evaluation appointment at any one of our locations or an intensive, multi-day clinical team assessment. Following the initial assessment, the Ethos team works to craft a specific treatment plan with collaborative treatment goals to ensure long-term recovery.

Psychodynamically-informed Integrative Care

We treat the whole person in the context of their environment, looking at the biological, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual aspects of their lives.

Different Therapy Modalities

Across the Ethos system of care, we provide individual, couples, family and group therapy. We believe deeply in the therapeutic relationship fostered in individual therapy alongside the powerful connections created in couples, family and group work. Part of our commitment to integrative care means using different modalities to affect and improve patients’ lives.

  • Psychoanalytic care
