Our clinicians use a variety of psychotherapy styles to ensure you are receiving the most advanced and effective care focused specifically on your needs. They include:
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
CBT is one of the most well-established based talk therapy treatments. The core premise is that one can experience negative thought processes and by controlling these thoughts, once can have a better mood and higher level of functioning.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT is most effective for patients with self-harm and self-destructive symptoms. Combining the 4 modules of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness can result in a better mood and higher level of functioning.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT is based on 6 core principles: thought defusion, acceptance, mindfulness, self as context, values and committed action meaning that your behaviors are supposed to align with your values. Whatever thoughts and emotions experienced should be isolated from values-based behaviors.
Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)
ERP exposes people to situations that provoke their obsessions and the resulting distress while helping them prevent their compulsive responses. The ultimate goal of ERP is to free people from the cycle of obsessions and compulsions so they can live better.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
ART is unique therapeutic approach that works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions.
Art therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches lives through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.
Music therapy is the clinical use of music to accomplish goals such as reducing stress, improving mood and self-expression. It is well-established in the health community. Music therapy experiences may include listening, singing, playing instruments, or composing music.
Play therapy is where a therapist uses play, toys, and games to help the child explore, express, and safely experience the difficulties they are working through. Using play, the therapist uncovers insights otherwise unable to be heard and recognized through normal dialogue.
Peer Support Counseling
Peer support is when trained, certified individuals use their own lived experiences with a mental illness to help each other. It involves both giving and receiving emotional support, knowledge, practical help, and interaction. Peer counselors bring a level of expertise that therapists cannot.
Marley the Therapy Dog
A therapy dog is one that is specially trained to work with people who have certain kinds of mental illnesses or learning disabilities.
