Positive Therapeutic Relationship
The most basic and fundamental ingredient in lasting therapeutic treatment is relationship. By providing a safe space where you are heard, respected and empowered, your body and brain process stress differently. Building a positive therapeutic relationship will drive your success. Connecting to yourself while learning to connect with others changes everything from metabolism to mood. The positive therapeutic relationship you will create with Pacific Solstice is a result of our decades of experience with evidence-based interventions and clinical modalities.
The second most important aspect of your treatment success is family. Feeling alone is counterproductive to healing and lasting change. Family is our core value for the sole reason that when you have support recovery catapults. Our extended family of professionals and peers add experience, mercy and diverse perspective to your support system. Mental illness or developmental disorders improve when biological family and non-biological family unite around your needs and goals. We can go far together! Not to worry if your family is not involved or ready to take the journey with you because you get to choose a new family with us, your peers, and your community. Our extended network of professionals, peers, and community supports and resources will partner with you to ensure your success.
Specialized Care for IT Professionals
Since COVID-19 changed work, academia and fun, adapting has required new attitudes, aptitudes, environments and a lot more support from IT. Operational matters like a late client or change of seating occur in the marketplace all the time and are expected, tolerated. But, the virtual meeting, printer or bad link require the support of an IT Professional and everyone feels the friction when there is a technology delay. As the demands rise, screen stress increases and appreciation dries up, burnout and compassion fatigue can create trauma for those we look to in IT. In fact, both will also bring up old trauma. The body keeps the score on trauma, needs and burnout, even if we warrior past the pain.
- Burnout indicators can be:
- More easily agitated
- Change in appetite
- Change in sleep
- Attention span decreased, harder to focus
- Crave sugar or alcohol
- It’s harder to experience pleasure, fun or life in general

Our mental healthcare services for IT Professionals helps individuals and their families regulate and communicate in the face of disconnection. Instead of excusing the dramatic change in the social contract we help IT Professionals cope and reunite so the screen stress is treated through whole person care. Strong feelings of discontent, loneliness and isolation can be paralyzing when faced alone. Desensitized individuals have a hard time talking about feels and an even harder time practicing coping skills. While we all love the conveniences of post industrial age life and we are thankful for technology conveniences, divided families and apathy need extra attention for those in IT.
