Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
CBT is an evidence-based short-term and effective psychotherapy approach that is used to treat a wide range of mental health problems including stress, depression, anxiety, anger, etc. This treatment is goal-oriented and takes on a practical approach to problem-solving by helping people change unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT equips clients with the skills to cope with painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships. Therapeutic skills in four key areas including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness are practiced in sessions. DBT is proven to be very effective for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, longstanding mood disorders, substance dependence, and eating disorders.
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
CPT is an effective therapy treatment to reduce symptoms in individuals recovering from PTSD and related conditions. CPT teaches trauma-specific cognitive techniques that aid that recovery process by helping trauma survivors process and cope with negative and difficult emotions.
Mindfulness is intentionally focusing one’s attention in the present moment in an accepting and non-judgmental way. Mindfulness practice reduces stress, anxiety, and depression by tuning one’s awareness into the present and away from dwelling on the past and the future. In sessions, mindfulness is cultivated through meditative practices and breathing exercises.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT helps individuals process and reinterpret painful events and emotions with an attitude of radical acceptance. This approach encourages individuals to embrace thoughts and feelings instead of avoiding or fighting them. Commitment to actions that will create meaningful changes is also a key focus of ACT.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
SFBT is a goal-oriented psychotherapy approach that helps individuals clarify and set goals and gain problem-solving life skills. Rather than focusing on the past, SFBT concentrates on finding solutions for present problems.
