You’re a high-performing professional in law, healthcare, or business, or an entrepreneur, graduate or professional student, or performer. You feel disconnected from the people and things that matter. The disconnect leads you to feel stuck and disillusioned. So, your relationships and career suffer.
Unfortunately, as a successful professional there are barriers to getting help. You may have tried therapy before and worked with a therapist who just didn’t “get it.” You don’t need another lecture on how you’re working too hard.
You don’t have enough time as it is. If you are going to dedicate the time to therapy, it needs to work. And that hasn’t happened yet.
So many therapists don’t understand your struggles as a high-achieving, intelligent, and passionate person. So, you’re left without the help you need. You’re merely surviving instead of thriving. Unfortunately, this can cause stress, depression, anxiety, and burnout.
Our psychologists get your hesitation. Momentum was founded by a psychologist and former corporate attorney who felt like you. When she was a burned-out lawyer, she tried executive coaches and therapists. Yet it always came down to her job. It interfered with everything. Every coach or therapist ended up with the same solution for her: “Nothing will change until you quit your current job.”
She always wondered, “How am I supposed to do that exactly? And afford my mortgage? Or afford to come to see them?” All of this was coming from someone who – in most cases – had never worked in a corporate environment and definitely not in an American Lawyer 100 law firm like hers.
Therapy can address the problems that are holding you back. So, you can continue on the path to reaching your greatest potential. Many of our therapists are working professionals and parents (of human and furry children), and they get that you are extremely busy and that the thought of adding one more thing to your list of obligations can feel overwhelming.
We also know that therapy can dramatically improve your quality of life. It can help you avoid becoming burnt out in your career which can prevent you from moving forward and achieving greater success. Also, the goal is that it will have a long-term impact. Our hope is that you will learn to be your own best coach and therapist long after we’ve finished working together.
Finally, therapy doesn’t have to take forever. To help fit therapy into your life, we offer our services exclusively through online therapy using our secure HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing system.
We’re not going to lie to you – the biggest predictor of outcomes in any therapy is the effort that the client puts into therapy.
Consistency is the key to results because the brain learns and changes quicker if we keep the “dose” steady. Reading, doing experiential practice outside of session, and more.
Yet you can increase the chances of success with a therapist who is ride or die on your side and in it to help you win it. And we’re all over that here armed with evidence-based models and years of experience to help you achieve the rich and fulfilling life you want.
If you walk the talk and we do the work, we can help you get there. We also want you to be open and honest with us about what’s working and what isn’t. You’re entering a no-shaming and no-judgment zone, and if you’ve never felt what that’s like, get ready for some serious life change.
Compulsive behaviors affecting work performance or relationships
Issues with concentration, lack of focus, or ADHD
Our therapists use therapy techniques that are grounded in empirical research and neuroscience including:
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT),
Trauma-Informed Therapies including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), and Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT),
Exposure & Response Prevention Therapy (ER)
Radically-Open DBT (RO-DBT).
Our goal is to collaborate with you, so you can master positive coping skills, and change your behaviors. We will work together to figure out what’s been keeping you from feeling fulfilled.
You also may be wondering how long therapy may take? The answer is, typically psychologist answer, it depends. Seriously, the length of time varies depending on what you need to gain from our work together, and the time that you have to commit to yourself. Often, that’s one of the first things we have to discuss is how to take the oxygen mask for yourself this time and give you the time that could pay huge dividends for you and so many of those who love and care for you.
It’s important that while we are creating meaningful and lasting change in your life that we are talking about your wins. By measuring and observing the change you are making, we can make a clear plan on how to move forward in therapy. Our hope is that after your work with your therapist you will have a more regulated nervous system and that you will feel more efficient, have a clear plan for your future, and feel better about your work and life.
*Please note that if you’re interested in working with one of our therapists in DBT or RO-DBT and have not completed a comprehensive DBT program before, we typically require that you be enrolled in a local group DBT or RO-DBT program. These treatments typically require both a group and individual component. Many of these options are virtual now.
