How We Treat
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT is a form of talking therapy which can be used to treat people with a wide range of mental health problems. It is based on the idea that how we think, how we feel, and how we act all interact together.
Acceptances + Commitment Therapy
ACT is also a form of talk therapy in the CBT tradition. It is an approach that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies combined with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. In ACT we focus on doing what works to mindfully move toward our values rather than on what’s wrong or broken about us and how to fix that.
EMDR is a phased, focused approach to treating traumatic and other symptoms by reconnecting the client in a safe and measured way to the images, self-thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the trauma, and allowing the natural healing powers of the brain to move toward adaptive resolution.
MI is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.” (Miller & Rollnick, 2013, p. 29)
Prolonged Exposure is a specific type of cognitive behavioral therapy that teaches individuals to gradually approach trauma-related memories, feelings and situations. Most people want to avoid anything that reminds them of the trauma they experienced, but doing so unfortunately reinforces their fear.
Exposure + Response Prevention
The Exposure in ERP refers to exposing yourself, or being present to the thoughts, images, objects and situations that make you anxious and/or start obsessions. While the Response Prevention part of ERP, refers to making a choice not to do avoidant or compulsive behavior once the anxiety or obsessions have been “triggered.”
