Specializing in Previous Treatment Failures
Research shows that the most important factor in therapeutic success is the quality of the relationship between the client and the therapist. Often therapy fails because the client just cannot feel any connection. Patients who claim "therapy doesn't work" often state that the therapist was distant, non-communicative, or just did not seem to understand the client's problems. Every therapist at ACES is chosen, not only for the highest level of competence, but also for their friendliness, sense of humor, and for being "down to earth." The most frequent comments we hear from clients is how friendly and home-like the entire atmosphere of ACES feels. We are expert at connecting the right therapist to every client; children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.
