Our clients are real people, and so are we. We are not “blank slates,” but rather therapists who are honest, direct, and non-judgemental. We value your time and want to make the most of it. Our clients usually see results and report feeling better after just a few appointments. We also love reading and learning new things, so we maintain an extensive list of resources. If you want reading or materials outside of your appointments, just ask, and we’ve got you covered.
Interested in the scientific nuts and bolts of our therapy styles? All the details and data are below for those of you that are interested in the science behind our therapy.
We value the usage of evidence based therapy techniques that have demonstrated positive outcomes and improvement in symptoms in large scale studies and research. In other words, evidence based treatments are backed by scientific evidence. We have extensive advanced training in these specific therapy styles. Our clients find these styles to be direct, empathic, and solution focused.
We are trained in the following therapy styles:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Behavioral Therapy
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
- Interpersonal Therapy
- Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy
If you would like to know more about these types of therapy, you can find out more by clicking the links below. These types of therapy tend to be present and solution focused. Additionally, these types of therapy encourage clients to work with their therapist to develop tools and strategies to meet their goals and live a more fulfilling life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT encourages clients to better understand their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Unlike other forms of therapy, CBT is more present than past focused. CBT encourages clients to identify solutions and strategies for change.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy DBT provides clients with skills to help them manage difficult situations and create more positive and meaningful relationships. DBT also focuses on increasing clients’ ability to cope with painful situations and stressors.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT is similar to CBT, though focuses more on acceptance of things that potentially cannot be changed, creating action items for what can be changed, and living in accordance with your values.
Interpersonal Therapy IPT helps improve the quality of client’s relationships. IPT is less directive than CBT, and helps clients to identify how to strengthen their relationship through four areas that include: improving unfulfilling relationships, coping with loss in relationships, adjusting to transitions in relationships, and conflict management.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy MBCT is a form of CBT that incorporates mindfulness. Mindfulness is a way of increasing focus to the world around us and being present, while also increasing our ability to be “less reactive” and overwhelmed by our current situations.
