We use evidence-based practices, that have been proven to show results.
TREATMENT ORIENTATIONS: (Some but not limited to)
Cognitive Behavioral– Therapeutic interventions are based on linking thoughts with feelings and behaviors. The goal is to replace dysfunctional and irrational thoughts with more helpful and rational ways of thinking.
Family Systems– Therapy focuses not just on the individual client, but also their family system as a whole. In order to maintain lasting changes, the family system must change together.
Solution Focused– Instead of focusing on the problems that bring the client to therapy, the therapist focuses on things that have been working and expands on the options within the client’s grasp.
Psycho-Dynamic and Psycho-Analytic– This approach stresses that mental health problems are rooted in unconscious conflicts and desires and these unconscious struggles must be identified and addressed. Psychoanalysis often does this through exploring one’s early childhood experiences that may have continuing repercussions on one’s mental health in the present and later in life.
Humanistic or Person-Centered– The belief is that mental health problems result from an inconsistency between patients’ behavior and their true personal identity. Thus, the goal is to create conditions under which clients can discover their self-worth, feel comfortable exploring their own identity, and alter their behavior to better reflect this identity.
Mindfulness Based Therapy– This uses meditation, and attention to physical experiences to reduce stress. The hope is that reducing a person’s overall stress will allow that person to more objectively evaluate his or her thoughts.
Integrative or Eclectic Psychotherapy– This approach incorporates multiple techniques throughout treatment geared towards the client as an individual and based on their needs each session.
