A message for our prospective patients ...

The quote from William Faulkner captures how I felt when I started Advanced Therapeutic Solutions in 2011, and continues to capture how my team and I feel today running a practice during the uncertainty of COVID-19. The current crisis has caused me to reflect back on those early days of ATS. I knew there was a need for better treatment out there, but thinking out of the box and moving away from the norm was incredibly intimidating. What if it didn't work? I appreciate that's what you may be thinking, too. What if this treatment doesn't work? Especially now, during the current pandemic, these doubts are even more present. The treatment we provide is evidence-based, but there is also an art to delivering evidence-based treatment. Years of practice have shown me the importance of creativity in tailoring and adapting methods to provide sound treatment with effective outcomes, especially for conditions requiring a specialist approach. While COVID-19 was unexpected, it is not a deal breaker for therapy. Instead, it demands my team to continue channeling their creativity in how they apply treatment, get around obstacles caused by the pandemic, and still yield effective outcomes, with patients feeling all the more empowered as a result. I have faith in the science behind the treatment. That's why I took the leap of faith to start ATS for Anxiety to begin with. Even though I felt intimidated then, I also felt certain, and I continue to feel certain now. In my fear, I found my brave. I hope that you, too, will find your brave.
