Our Philosophy

Ardent is the product of 20 years of therapy, research, and instruction by Dr. Scott Terry; it was created to address the needs that were not being met in the tradition therapy model. In creating Ardent, our therapists took a pledge to focus on meeting their client’s direct needs, and tailoring their services to support them in creating truly meaningful changes in their lives.

At Ardent, we are dedicated to your wellbeing. Our therapists utilize a direct and holistic approach to individual, couple, family, and group counseling. Our goal is to find the best therapist to meet your unique needs, and then tailor our approach to help you gain a deeper understanding of how to create the changes you desire. Feeling connected to self and others is necessary to reach our fullest potential. It’s our goal to help you achieve your full potential and flourish in your life.

Our diverse staff of counselors focuses on truly listening to their clients, asking powerful questions and sharing compassionate guidance around issues and concerns that are affecting their lives. Our therapists are not only licensed and highly qualified, they’re handpicked for their unique ability to connect well with clients.
