Therapies and techniques we use to overcome many conditions.
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT therapy) is a type of mindful psychotherapy that helps you stay focused on the present moment and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment. It aims to help you move forward through difficult emotions so you can put your energy into healing instead of dwelling on the negative.
Art therapy involves the use of creative techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, coloring, or sculpting to help people express themselves artistically and examine the psychological and emotional undertones in their art. With the guidance of a credentialed art therapist, clients can interpret the nonverbal messages, symbols, and metaphors often found in these art forms, which should lead to a better understanding of their feelings and behavior so they can move on to resolve deeper problems.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps people learn how to identify and change the destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on their behavior and emotions.
Couples therapy is a form of psychotherapy that can help you and your partner improve your relationship. Couples therapy can help rebuild your relationship, and address a wide range of relationship issues, including recurring conflicts, feelings of disconnection, an affair, issues related to sex, or difficulties due to external stressors. You can learn more effective ways to communicate and connect.
Expressive arts therapy is the practice of using imagery, storytelling, dance, music, drama, poetry, movement, horticulture, dreamwork, and visual arts together, in an integrated way, to foster human growth, development, and healing.
Discernment counseling is a type of brief couples therapy designed for couples who are uncertain whether they want to continue their relationship. It can also be used in cases where one partner wants to end the relationship while the other hopes to preserve it.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a form of short-term therapy that aims to improve couple relationships by rekindling the physical and emotional bond that can get sacrificed to disappointment in a partner and alienation from them, a common dynamic in distressed couples.
Exposure therapy is a technique in behavior therapy to treat anxiety disorders. Exposure therapy involves exposing the target patient to the anxiety source or its context without the intention to cause any danger (desensitization). Doing so is thought to help them overcome their anxiety or distress.
Mindfulness is a tool to bring one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. It is used as a therapeutic technique for a variety of emotional issues.
Play therapy uses the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development.
Solution-Focused Therapy is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems that brought clients to seek therapy. It incorporates positive psychology principles and practices, and which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems.
Group counseling allows our clients to gather together with 3 or more other individuals with similar goals or needs to offer support, insight, and community to each other. There is always at least one provider present who will facilitate and guide the group.
Art can be used to help clients communicate difficult feelings, overcome stress, and explore different aspects of their personalities. Through conversation and art activities, clients learn how to express and process thoughts and feelings. The goal is not to make masterpieces, but to find a way to express emotions that cannot easily be put into words. Art therapy is not just about expression, but also for calming and regaining wholeness. You don’t need to be artistic to enjoy art therapy!
Cognitive behavioral therapy helps us to change thinking patterns that may be causing us problems and replace these patterns with new ones. It can be helpful for clients looking for new ways to cope with anxiety or depression.
