Our Treatments

Overview of CBT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a goal-oriented therapeutic approach that focuses on addressing and rectifying negative thought patterns. By understanding the interplay between thoughts, feelings, and actions, individuals are empowered with strategies to challenge distorted beliefs, leading to improved emotional well-being and positive behavioral changes.​

Overview of DBT

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an advanced form of CBT that blends acceptance and change. It equips individuals with skills in mindfulness, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness, making it especially beneficial for managing intense emotions and enhancing relationships.

Overview of EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a structured therapy aimed at alleviating distress from traumatic memories. Using bilateral stimulation, often through guided eye movements, it facilitates the processing and integration of traumatic experiences, promoting natural healing and recovery.

Overview of TRM

The Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM) is a body-focused approach that emphasizes building resilience post-trauma. By teaching individuals to recognize and manage their nervous system responses, TRM offers tools to navigate traumatic stress, harnessing the body’s natural ability to heal and rebound.

Through active listening and open dialogue, MI assists clients in exploring and resolving ambivalence, emphasizing personal choice and aligning changes with their intrinsic values and goals.

Overview of CPT

Combining cognitive therapy with written reflections, CPT addresses problematic beliefs, making it especially effective for those with PTSD and promoting holistic recovery.
