Our specialized skillsets
ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT)
With ACT, we teach mindfulness skills to help you live and behave in ways consistent with personal values while developing psychological flexibility.
By practicing ACT, we help you recognize ways in which your attempts to suppress, manage, and control emotional experiences create challenges. By recognizing and addressing these challenges, you can become better able to make room for values-based actions that support well-being.
DIALETICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT)
Dialetical Behavior Therapy is a comprehensive cognitive behavioral treatment. DBT aims to treat people who see little or no improvement with other therapy models.
We use DBT to help you focus on problem solving and acceptance-based strategies. DBT operates within a framework of dialectical methods. The term dialectical refers to the processes that bring opposite concepts together such as change and acceptance. We use DBT to help you develop techniques for achieving goals, improving well-being, and effecting lasting positive change
MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING (MI)
Motivational interviewing is a psychotherapeutic approach that attempts to move you away from a state of indecision or uncertainty and towards finding motivation to making positive decisions and accomplishing established goals.
We use Motivational Interviewing as a clinical approach to help you with mental health, substance use disorders, and other chronic conditions to make positive behavioral changes to support better health. We use MI to help you express empathy and avoiding arguing, develop resilience, and support self-efficacy.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT)
CBT is a short-term form of behavioral treatment. It helps you problem-solve. CBT also reveals the relationship between your beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and the behaviors that follow.
Through CBT, we will give you the tools to learn that your perceptions directly influence how you respond to specific situations. In other words, with CBT, we will help you understand that your thought process informs your behaviors and actions.
Play therapy is a form of therapy primarily geared toward children. In this form of therapy, we encourage a child to explore life events that may have an effect on current circumstances, in a manner and pace of the child’s choosing, primarily through play but also through language.
Play therapy can help our young clients communicate, explore repressed thoughts and emotions, address unresolved trauma, and experience personal growth and is widely viewed as an important, effective, and developmentally appropriate mental health treatment.
