When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.Sun Tzu
Ted Morris believes becoming one’s truest self is the greatest gift we can award ourselves. Opening Audacious Growth in 2020 is the culmination of a 15 year career as a therapist. Ted formerly worked with clients within the judicial system and as a crisis clinician within the community mental health system in both Colorado and Georgia. Ted is a graduate of Argosy University and holds a master’s degree in psychology. Skilled in both cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, Ted focuses his practice on helping people further enhance their lives by eliminating toxic patterns that have been holding them back.
Through these diverse settings, Ted noticed a common theme impacting clients’ therapeutic successes: people tend to do better if those helping them meet them where they are in their respective challenges. Regardless of what someone has done or what circumstances they find themselves in, acceptance can be the key to unlocking previously resistant transformation.
Ted feels all people want to be heard and improvement starts with listening. Hearing what they have to say and why they feel they must change is the first step toward transformation. People do their best when they feel accepted. Ted favors a direct approach in goal setting and giving people tools they can apply right away.
Ted has worked as a therapist, coach and personal trainer. “I am invested in helping people realize and develop their potential. The spirit of Audacious Growth is being willing to take those big steps necessary to create big and lasting changes to their lives.”
Comparison is the thief of joy – Theodore Roosevelt
Ted believes that our individual uniqueness is a strength we must all develop. When we compare ourselves unfavorably to others, we are robbing ourselves of what makes us special. Each of us has a talent that brings us joy. Expressing and exercising these talents is what develops our truest self.
