Welcome to Katy Counseling for Men! I'm happy you are doing your research to find the right men's counselor for you.
I started my counseling journey in 2005. I have seen the benefits of talk therapy and how it has helped many people I have worked with achieve their goals.
In looking for other counseling approaches supported by research that have been shown to be effective, I came across Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a different approach than talk therapy.
While we do talk about the problem, the specific situation, the symptoms you are working to eliminate in your life, we do not spend a lot of time in this area.
ART works directly with the brain through eye movements and imagery in processing information that may have become "stuck". ART helps facilitate movement of the "stuck" information which can finally bring relief to the symptoms you are experiencing.
I provide ART to teens, young adults, and adults alike. ART is a short-term approach and it has shown to be effective in alleviating symptoms in as few as 1-5 sessions.

What I Bring to Katy Counseling for Men: Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
As an Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) counselor, I have known the approach to be effective and short term. When I started practicing ART, I think I was still surprised with just how effective ART was in seeing improvements in my clients in a short amount of time.
As a counselor at our sister practice, Katy Teen & Family Counseling, I was excited to hear about Katy Counseling for Men. ART is not only an effective approach; it is perfect for men who may not want to go the talk therapy route. Those men who may prefer talk therapy may get frustrated with this approach due to the lack of talking about the problem in ART.
ART utilizes the brain's natural way of processing thoughts, emotions, and experiences. It also uses the brain's natural way of healing. When we get a cut, we really don't need to think about our body healing itself. It just happens.
Our brains are much the same. However, when life stressors and pressures build, it can get in the way of our brain healing our emotional challenges.
The brain uses Rapid Eye Movement (REM) while we sleep to process the thoughts, emotions, and experiences of the day. And sometimes these do not get processed and get stuck. This is where ART comes in.
ART helps to directly process those thoughts, emotions, and distressing experiences so that they no longer create strong emotional and/or physical responses. One of the mechanisms that ART uses is eye movements, just like in REM sleep. Except in ART (and EMDR), you are awake,
This is a large reason why ART does not rely on talk therapy. Talk therapy is a bottom-up approach where the therapist must get information to get to the source of the problem. ART is a top-down approach and goes right to the source from the start -- the brain's information processing system.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is helpful in a variety of life challenges. Some of the challenges that ART is particularly helpful in overcoming include:
