Our HR Mission Statement

Our Mission

We are a community of caregivers, united by a passion for making a difference and a shared drive for excellence. We believe that every human being deserves to live a life with purpose, belonging and a sense of mastery. To pursue that goal, we embrace the most current science, practice evidence-based methods, and partner with leading research institutions. We also believe that we can only give our best to our patients when we embody and elevate the best in one another.

Our Culture

Great things happen when people feel confident in themselves, comfortable in their surroundings and supported by their peers. That’s why our culture is anything but clinical. We believe walking through the doors of Compass should feel like a warm embrace. Casual attire is encouraged. Fun is invited. You’re likely to find us sharing a joke or a meal, celebrating a new baby or new milestone, joining the kids in a game of basketball, or planning the next happy hour. More than just coworkers, we are a “deeply connected team, doing life together.” It’s our hope that you’ll find a place to succeed professionally and thrive holistically.

Our Values

Like the symbolic compass that is our namesake, our values are our guide and our true north. In our words as well as our actions, we:

  • Strive for EXCELLENCE, balanced by intellectual HUMILITY
  • Live in COMMUNITY, supported through social and economic EQUALITY
  • Exhibit PLAYFULNESS and joy in our daily interactions
  • Assume a stance of COMPASSION and GRATITUDE for each other’s contributions

“Working at Compass has significantly increased my quality of life as I’ve been able to engage in value-based action. A core value of mine since my intensive training in 2014 was to one day be a LBC-DBT Certified Clinician and as promised, I was able to be certified in 12 months. I have never worked for an employer that cares so much about my values, quality of life, and who has invested in me as a Clinician and in my future (i.e. working with students, being able to train the community in providing DBT, providing accessible and affordable adherent DBT to the community). My strengths are valued and appreciated and I’ve never once questioned that.”
