In 1991 I went through a career crisis. I became a psychologist so that I could help people make life altering changes – but I wasn’t seeing those kind of changes in my clients or in my supervisor’s clients. I gave myself 2 years to find what really worked or I was going to have to find another field of work.
I traveled across the country, getting different trainings and looking at different models. I took the most effective therapies and blended them together to get to the core in a fast and focused way, to resolve problems at the root instead of just putting a bandaid on them.
At first, I tried to squeeze everything into standard 45-minute sessions. That worked for some clients but many were still stuck. I started scheduling my clients who weren’t making real progress at the end of the day so that we could go over if needed. I found that just about all of my previously stuck clients started making real progress with 90-minute or 3-hour sessions.
So I reorganized my practice into what it is today – 90-minute sessions where we help you achieve up to a month’s worth of counseling in each session, 3-hour sessions where we help you achieve up to 3 month’s of counseling and ‘mental health days’ (a 3-hour session in the morning and another 3-hour session in the afternoon) where you can achieve up to 6 months of counseling in a single day.
Since 1991 we have been completely committed to one thing, helping you to get rid of your emotional baggage as quickly as humanly possible. We use feedback from our clients and the latest results from neuroscience to continually improve the programs we offer.
