Also known as psychotherapy, counseling can take many forms depending on the counselor’s training and practice. The current directions of practice are:
- Existential Therapy
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to help the client examine what has become “stuck” or “trapped” in the subconscious or to redirect reactions into something more productive or less unhealthy as needed. Counseling is required to more deeply examine what is discovered under hypnosis.
Neurofeedback uses the ability to examine electrical patterns from the brain to practice and exercise healthy patterns towards healing. This involves the use of EEG connections to the head and either a video game or a movie projection as an incentive to teach the brain.
How Do I Know if Therapy is Right for Me?
When dealing with other methods of psychotherapy, the first step must always be to seek counseling first to be sure you need the extra methods. Some methods, from psychopharmacology to neurofeedback, can be used to alleviate symptoms while counseling continues to seek out the cause. Others can be helpful in finding the cause but must be used with caution so that the cause is not masked behind misinterpretation or relativity of meaning. If you think another method might help, ask your counselor about it first.
How do your services compare with others?
Our associates try to keep up with the latest research and training in what they do to give our clients the best service they can. Sometimes this can mean skipping certifications in favor of paying more for extra training, but certifications are kept in mind while training.
How are your prices compared with others?
While we allow our associates to price for themselves, they tend towards trying their best to make services available to as many people as possible. This can mean keeping services equal to the average Colorado fee for similar services, however we have found that many are given a quote that is less than the average so that they can afford to see us.
Are you licensed/certified/insured?
Insurance is a requirement in our profession and each associate is required to carry their own. Certifications are sought after; contact the individual associate for more information on certifications in their areas of expertise. Licensing in the state of Colorado requires a great deal of client hours in a single year to achieve and not everyone gets enough client hours to achieve it, therefore we are less concerned than some companies about licensing as we are about insurance, certifications, and, most importantly, the heart to do good for our clients’ well being.
Does your service require we are Christian?
Absolutely not. While we are a Christian company, we do not discriminate based on religion. Monte, the founder of the parent company, Dirt ‘N’ Nails Farms Inc. (501c3), looks forward to time with other cultures and religions having grown in a Filipino-Japanese-American home with both Buddhist and Episcopalian upbringing and made friends around the world.
What are your views on...?
Politics and hysteria aside, everyone has a view on everything. That does not change how we look at the need for psychotherapy in the communities we serve beyond what is illegal. We will not, for example, advocate in favor of illegal drug use or in favor of a client participating in a fight club. We will advocate for the best and fullest mental health of our clients.
