Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. 

We all have bad days but sometimes a situation, emotion, or thought pattern becomes so pronounced that it starts feeling like it's running your life. Mental Health Therapy can help you break out of the cycle and regain control of your life.

The first step is easy. Schedule a free introduction and talk to a licensed therapist about what's going on. Not only can talking about it help, but you can decide if we're the right fit for you. If it seems like we can't help, we'll be happy to guide you to someone who can.

In the last 15 years I've worked with people who are suffering with addiction, severe psychological disturbances, personality disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship dysfunction trying to get back on track....

THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

Therapy

Many enter therapy because they want some symptom (anxiety, depression, constant anger, etc.) to go away. And often our methods for dealing with those painful symptoms actually make things worse (self-harm, workaholism, relationship-dependence, addiction, isolation, eating, etc.). When we do this, it's like dealing with a house on fire by disconnecting the smoke alarm.

We use the Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach because almost 55,000 studies support this approach for changing behavior and improving mental health. ACT teaches you to listen to the alarms, look at the reactionary behaviors that are making things worse, and develop tools to break the cycles of suffering, choosing instead to respond in healthy ways. 

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy can help with:

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Depression

  • Bi-Polar Disorder

  • Perfectionism

  • Shame

  • Feelings of Worthlessness

  • Life Transition

  • Attachment Difficulties

  • Grief/ Loss

  • Trauma

  • Co-Dependency

  • Substance Abuse*

  • Disordered Eating*

  • Sexual Disorders*

  • Breaking Family Patterns

  • Self-Sabotage

  • Psychedelic Integration

*We will only treat cases that are mild to moderate and appropriate for outpatient care. Severe cases may require inpatient treatment. 

YOUR INVESTMENT

Therapy as an investment in your mental health and wellbeing. The return you should expect to see on your investment is a radical change in the way that you see the world and live your life.

Our therapy fees are $200 per session and we offer several options for payment. We expect our clients to fully engage in each of those sessions. And we expect it will take around 10 sessions before clients notice meaningful results.

So, before you commit to beginning therapy with us, it is important to ask yourself a few questions:
 

  1. Is the outcome I'm hoping for worth an investment of $2,000 or more?

  2. Am I prepared to stick it out for 10 sessions even if I don't see immediate results?

  3. Am I willing to surrender to the process, to fully engage, and to follow through with homework?

  4. Do I trust the therapist and/or therapeutic model?

 

If you can honestly answer yes to all of these questions, you are ready to start.
