Our clients are beautifully complex individuals, so we believe in using a range of tools to meet your needs. We work with the whole mind-body system, allowing the mind and body to work together toward healing with the ultimate goal of finding balance and peace in all aspects of life.
Below are some of the therapy approaches we use integrating one or more of these depending on the individual needs and preferences of each client.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy
EMDR helps you process traumas and difficult life experiences by addressing how the mind and body process information and memories. With EMDR, you recall the difficult memory as well as the sensations and beliefs associated with it. Then we use eye movements, tapping or tones to desensitize you from the disturbing sensations and free you from reliving them. This gives you relief from the strong emotions and symptoms that interfere with daily life.
Cognitive-Based Therapy (CBT)
The goal of CBT is to help you change unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving and coping. With CBT, we work with you on practical problem solving in your life and relationships. We build your skills so you can successfully manage your own beliefs, emotions and behaviors.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBT)
The MBT approach combines CBT with mindfulness and meditation practices to help you courageously observe and respond to one of the biggest causes of your suffering: your own mind. We help you slow down to observe your situation and your response to it, and create the space between them to give you a chance to change your habitual response.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy
Have you ever felt like you are at war with yourself, or that there are different parts of you pulling you in different directions? IFS helps you identify and work with the different parts of yourself, so you are able to integrate and lead your whole self. This is especially important when traumas cause certain parts of you to “take over” and act in a way that’s no longer helpful to you.
Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT focuses on helping you manage stress and change with less anxiety. It uses mindfulness, distress tolerance (ability to survive difficult situations), interpersonal effectiveness (skills for setting good boundaries), and emotion regulation (ability to recognize and manage difficult emotions, and create positive emotions) to help you live the life you want to live.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT focuses on increasing your flexibility in responding to life by using mindfulness to help you perceive and accept a situation, and then commit to behavior changes that will move you closer to the life you want to live.
