Compass Rose counseling services

Compass Rose Academy's Growth Model is based on the work of psychologist and author Dr. John Townsend, Ph.D. In addition to addressing symptoms with elements of therapy models such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Compass Rose Academy's clinical program features a major emphasis on affect-based approaches that utilize the central role of experience in the therapeutic healing process. Based on advances in affective neuroscience, these corrective experiences in therapy create new neurological pathways that reinforce new ways of being and relating, leading to changes that are deeper and longer lasting. Instead of focusing solely on reducing symptoms like depression, anxiety, or defiance, our Growth Model looks at the hard-wiring issues (or character structure) that drive symptoms. We address this "character structure" in four primary developmental levels - Bonding, Boundaries, Reality, and Competence. The focus of the counseling and all other aspects of our program at Compass Rose are on developing the character, or internal structure, necessary to face the issues of life. As we focus on building healthy internal structure in these areas, we find that symptoms like depression, anxiety, and defiance decrease and often are eliminated.
