WHO WE ARE
Inner Solutions™ has been supporting people in their mental health journey for the past two decades.
From individual and group therapy to dietetics and mindfulness, our team helps with depression, anxiety, borderline personality and bipolar disorders, ADHD, disordered eating, addiction, trauma, and more.
While our services are comprehensive and inclusive, we specialize in all levels of emotion dysregulation. We support individuals and their families using DBT-based therapies, programs, and strategies for the short and long term. Using a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach, our therapists can help calm, restart, and heal. If this sounds like you or someone you love, we can guide and support you.
Our beliefs and values
We believe that people are doing the best they can regardless of how they are feeling or what their behaviors look like. Engaging in ineffective behavior is most often due to having intense emotions and is not a reflection of how hard a person is trying. At the same time, they do need to change their harmful behaviors.
Talking about problems through conventional talk therapy is unfortunately not enough when people are struggling with emotional dysregulation. Guidance, direction, and accountability using research-driven treatments are necessary to start, sustain, and reclaim a balanced and healthy life.
No one “fails” in therapy. Either the time for change isn’t right, the therapy isn’t a fit, or the therapist didn’t get it right. We accept these facts and work to improve our practice by seeking consultation, maintaining professional development, and looking at the outcome of our work.
Our mission is to understand and help by providing empirically supported treatments and evidence-based practices with compassion and expertise. We help clients “learn it, live it, and lend it™” to others by example.
