No More Band-Aids!
It’s human nature to want to not only fix what’s wrong, but to fix it quickly. There are a lot of techniques and strategies out there that work like a Band-Aid by covering up the pain and stopping the “bleeding.” While a temporary “Band-Aid” can feel good in the moment, it’s not going to heal the source of pain or unhappiness. We believe that simply covering up emotions aren’t going to have long-lasting effects. We go beyond the “Band-Aid” to help you truly understand and not be afraid of your emotions, and find a change in how you experience life. Watch our video where we explain why emotional Band-Aids suck.
We Believe In ...
Mental Wellness for All
Just like in other health professions, in psychology there is a lot of focus on symptoms. Treatment type is often decided by insurance: naming a diagnosis, dictating the session schedule, and putting limits on what you can do. Our focus is on mental wellness, a holistic view that allows for a treatment that is designed for you. That means you’ll get to decide what you want and we’ll help you get there (via online therapy or in-person), without being limited by any labels.
Transform & Transcend Through Truth
Challenge yourself to see things in a whole new way. When you gain the knowledge to understand yourself clearly, how your brain works, and what that means in your own life, you can transform to have a change in perspective so you’re not experiencing emotional exhaustion. And transcendence comes when you can have practical peace in your everyday life, no matter what highs and lows are happening. We help you rise above it all (via individual or online group therapy) so you can have the energy to focus on being joyful every day.
Your Ability to Self-Solve
Therapists have training, and therefore often tell you exactly what to do. But we know that there are a lot of different options to handle any given situation. We focus on actively listening to you, and use our expertise to open your eyes to those options. We are your partner, offering our knowledge to help facilitate the path you want to take. You don’t need one more person talking at you, you need someone who will listen.
Safety & Structure Based on Science
There are always new discoveries about the brain. We are dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest science, trends, and methodologies. There are many different ways to approach therapy, each with areas of effectiveness and its limits. Expertise matters, and we rely on our scientific expertise to guide us in applying a specific treatment, so you aren’t spending time and money on a therapy that isn’t going to be beneficial. We use the latest and safest HIPAA-compliant tech for in-person and online therapy and are always looking to learn new ways of meeting our clients’ needs.
A Preference for Prevention
Preventative care for your mental health—just like for your physical body—is vital. Modern science has provided many options, including the power of medication. But we also believe that finding the right diagnosis and medication takes time and should be done with care, taking into consideration the chemical reactions and side effects that come along with it. It’s human nature to wait until you’ve reached the edge—just remember that it’s easier to get healthy when you’re not in crisis. There are steps you can take to move toward mental wellness, and we can help you get there.
Clarity Through Connection
There is a beauty in learning from others. When you can connect with others on the same journey, you gain a new understanding and you don’t feel quite so alone. We believe in the power of group work. Working on your mental wellness in a group dynamic opens your eyes to a different perspective. Individuals come together as a group and create a momentum that is powerful and effective to get you where you want to be faster than one-on-one sessions.
Meeting You Where You Are
People are different. That doesn’t change when it comes to therapy and mental wellness. Your personality plays a huge part in finding mental wellness. What drives you, your circumstances, your past experiences all play a role in your journey. We see you as an individual and won’t put you in a box when it comes to treatment. We’ve created one of a kind online group therapy, deep dives that focus on every aspect of wellness, and tele-therapy options that create personalized experiences. We utilize our knowledge and expertise to apply the right methodology that will work for you.
