Accelerated Resolution Therapy

The Evolution of Therapy

Eye movement therapies have been around for over 30 years.  Here at Ascend Counseling & Coaching, we practice one of the most refined and effective eye-movement therapies in the helping professions that has been around for 16 years.

We are at the fore-front of using Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) to help clients heal from psychological trauma and other mental health symptoms. 


With this innovative therapy, feeling better doesn't have to wait.  Research shows that 70% of people who experience ART will feel a reduction and potential permanent resolution of their mental health symptoms in as little as 3.67 sessions.

ART brings about a majoy paradigm shift in the world of therapy that mental health symptoms don't have to be managed over a long period of time, they can be resolved.
