Hello and welcome! Our hope is that in visiting this site, you will be able to get a sense of what it would be like to work with one of us at Ascent Counseling and Psychotherapy (ACP), as finding a good fit with a therapist is the most important piece of your healing. At ACP, we tailor to your individual needs, and the needs of your family, always working toward improving your quality of life and working toward the goals that you set as a priority.
As we look around us, we see a lot in our families, communities, and the world that is hurting. It is our belief that change does indeed start with our own hearts. In the words of Chögyam Trungpa, "If you want to solve the world's problems, you have to put your own household, your own individual life in order first." As we heal ourselves, we are more able to see clearly the impact that each of us has on the world. As we heal, we are also more likely and able to take appropriate actions that will help us to grow healthy families and communities, rather than taking action from reactivity, fear and pain. Our goal is simple: Help others to heal so that, in turn, our communities, our nation, and our world may also grow healthy.
