Therapy Solutions Today
When a client reaches out for help there's a certain amount of vulnerability and uncertainty which is completely normal. The last thing a client needs is a therapist that doesn't return your phone calls, takes days to call you back or even worse is impossible to get a hold of when you need them.
My clients report a sense of relief and satisfaction when it comes to availability and the knowledge that if I am don't answer right then and there that I can and will get back to them in the near future. Additional feedback connects to quick response timelines, scheduling flexibility and someone that is actively engaged and invested in the client therapist work relationship.
To my client's benefit, I respond (within 2 hours or less on average) and in most cases, can schedule your session within the same work week, sometimes even on the same day or night depending on when you call and my availability. If you call and I'm available to do so I'll provide you with an initial free 15-minute phone consultation. If I’m not in session with a client during business hours, I actually answer my phone.
I provide treatment for:
Marital and Couples Work
People Pleasing Issues
Fear of Abandonment/Rejection/Failure
Repetitive Relationship Failure
Family Enmeshment Issues
Pre and Post Divorce Healing Support
Family Boundary Violations in Couples Relationships
Mild Trauma and PTSD
Isolation or Neglect Recovery
Loss or Grief
Marital Infidelity/Trust Issues
Lack of Identity or Self Confidence
Struggle with Authority Figures
Occupational Performance Issues
Relationship Team Building/Damage Control
Post Rehab Support
Meet Daniel Acosta
Hi, my name is Daniel Acosta, owner, psychotherapist, and founder of Therapy Solutions Today. I’m very excited to be an active part of your journey in healing, acceptance, and so much more. I know from personal experience just how frustrating it is to hear back from a therapist days later (if at all?)... Feel free to reach out to me so I can help you and your loved ones today not tomorrow.
A little bit about me, I’m a father who's been blessed to have been married for over 24 years. I love spending my downtime when I'm not at work connecting, growing with, and appreciating my family. Activities and hobbies that I enjoy include sports, animals, travel, and self-care.
On a personal note, I have a past filled with trauma, child abuse, domestic violence, and emotional neglect. This led me to suffer from shame, guilt, anger, and more. I found a therapist I was able to work with and my individual journey of healing, development, and commitment to self began which ultimately led me to become a Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Life Coach.
My clients are busy professionals who have full schedules; as such we get to work right away. I give my clients homework to accelerate their individual growth and healing in their journey and I utilize an empirical and evidenced-based theoretical approach known as "Mindfulness Self-Compassion" by Kristin Neff, Ph.D., and Christopher Germer Ph.D. The relationship with self and the ability to nurture, soothe, self-regulate emotionally in the face of adversity to overcome past trauma is crucial to one's wellness, homeostasis, and quality of life.
Academic learning is amazing and full of opportunities for growth; at the same time, I don't want to discount the value of real-life experience in the context of being able to connect with others and truly understand what they are going through. When appropriate, I leverage my real-life experiences and more to help you and your loved ones with a deeper level of competence and credibility.
