There are many evidence-based forms of therapy, but here are a few that we practice.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a here-and-now approach to examining how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and impact our overall well-being. CBT focuses on identifying maladaptive thinking and behavioral patterns and implementing specific strategies to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.
CBT is an active, problem-focused approach that helps to directly challenge various cognitive distortions and change unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) focuses on learning to manage difficult or intense emotions and to decrease conflict in relationships. The underlying philosophy of DBT hinges on the important dialectic that we are all doing the best we can, and we have the ability to be better. DBT specifically focuses on providing CBT-like therapeutic skills in four key areas—mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness.
Interpersonal therapy (IPT) is a method of treating depression. IPT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on you and your relationships with other people. It's based on the idea that personal relationships are at the center of psychological problems. Depression isn't always caused by an event or a relationship
Also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person's present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are a client's self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) uses a mix of acceptance, mindfulness, and behavior change strategies to improve mental wellbeing and increase psychological flexibility. ACT is a very experiential type of therapy that uses in-session exercises, metaphor, language, and physical movement to focus on living a valued life instead of getting stuck in needing to "get rid" of suffering.
