Who We Are
Experience Change is a new company, built in 2016 to help connect people like you to top notch mental health providers who use cutting-edge science to inform their practice, leaving you with lasting results.
What We Believe
Our commitment to you.
We’re on a mission to provide easily accessible, effective, science-based mental health services.
You are our top priority.
Our therapists’ authenticity and transparency allow you to truly explore challenges in your life without having to fear what the therapist may be thinking or feeling. Experiencing a secure attachment with the therapist creates new neural circuitry, pathways, and networks that allow you to relate, moment by moment in new, healthier, more resilient ways.
Science drives practice
Our counseling methods are based on how the brain and body work best.
New research in the field of attachment, neurobiology, and neuroscience are now providing a more scientific basis of how to develop the brain, improve self-regulation, increase resiliency, and build secure attachments. Experiential therapies can assist with integrating different parts of the brain and body; thereby, decreasing reactive fight, flight, or freeze responses. Our therapists use this knowledge every hour of every day to direct their work.
Experiences change us
The most learning and growth occur through new experiences.
We now know that the brain changes with every new experience we have. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s amazing capacity to change and adapt. From the time the brain begins to develop in utero until the day we die, new EXPERIENCES change the brain’s physical structure and functional organization. Experiential therapies provide opportunities for corrective experiences where you experience yourself or others in new ways.
One of the best reasons to choose Experience Change is the people who work here. Our business model allows each therapist to build their own private practice, study what interests them, and train under some of the best therapists in the world. We bring you the most progressive and powerful methods of treatment available.
Experience Change is proud of our diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
We work hard to know and care for ourselves, so we can take care of you.
Our therapists maintain the highest ethical and legal standards.
Adria Rigg, LPC, LMFT is the founder of Experience Change. Adria received her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology Counselor Education with a specialization in Couples and Family Therapy from the University of Colorado Denver in 2010. Adria has over 15 years experience working with children, teenagers, and families and has been practicing for 6 years in the Denver Metro Area. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. In addition, she has training in Synergetic Play Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Adria became interested in neurobiology (how the brain and body works) as she began to learn and practice experiential therapies. As Adria began practicing these experiential models, she saw more significant and longer lasting change. She could see how techniques that facilitated change in the brain and nervous system were so powerful! She wished that more clients and professionals could be aware of and able to easily access these services. Therefore, Adria created EXPERIENCE CHANGE, a network of highly qualified and knowledgeable therapists that help clients of all income levels.
