Since 2017, Seeds2Succeed has provided services for athletes and student-athletes, in the greater Las Vegas area, aimed at increasing performance and coping skills associated with mental health and wellness challenges in sports. Seeds2Succeed supports athletes ranging from many levels including middle school, high school, collegiate, and professional levels.

Seeds2Succeed is motivated to continue supporting athletes in Las Vegas by increasing individual performance levels and in reaching identified goals, while teaching skills to help maintain identified success and performance levels.
We encourage you as a potential client to educate yourself around what methods work, so that you can make informed decisions about selecting the right therapist to help you. “Evidence based” means that research (academic research, published in peer-reviewed journals) has found these approaches to be effective strategies in helping people to change. The common aspect of these therapies is that they are all active approaches that emphasize cultivation of your strengths to create a more positive future, rather than simply “talking” or focusing on disorder rooted in the past. If you work with a therapist at Seeds2Succeed, some or all of these approaches may be utilized at various points in your treatment depending on your current needs and goals.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT is an empirically-based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. The objective of ACT is not elimination of difficult feelings; rather, it is to be present with what life brings us and to "move toward valued behavior". Acceptance and commitment therapy invites people to open up to unpleasant feelings, and learn not to overreact to them, and not avoid situations where they are invoked. Its therapeutic effect is a positive spiral where feeling better leads to a better understanding of the truth. ACT adopts the view that there are valid alternatives to trying to change the way you think, and these include mindful behavior, attention to personal values, and commitment to action. By taking steps to change their behavior while, at the same time, learning to accept their psychological experiences, clients can eventually change their attitude and emotional state.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches clients that emotions, thoughts and behaviors all influence each other. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions (e.g. thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes) and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. The emphasis in CBT is on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and practicing more adaptive behaviors. Homework and strategic exercises will be part of this process. Numerous outcome studies comparing treatments have consistently shown that this form of therapy is the most effective for helping people with a wide variety of issues, from depression to anxiety to trauma to eating disorders. It can even be more effective than medication, particularly for the treatment of depression. It is considered the “gold standard” of effective, evidence-based therapy.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T)
MBSR-T teaches mindfulness skills and provides tools for those in their pre-teen years through latter adolescence and even for young adults. MBST-T takes a mind-body approach and focuses on the whole person. MBSR-T is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for adults. Like MBSR, MBSR-T is based on secular adaptations of mindfulness practices with roots in Eastern meditation traditions. MBSR-T is also strongly influenced by mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.
Solution – Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) T
his short-term therapy strives to look for positive strengths and exceptions. By honing in on what works rather that what doesn’t you can focus on solutions. Outcome research has demonstrated that this form of treatment can be as effective as longer-term models of therapy, but in as little as 5 sessions.
