Areas of Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on changing negative thinking patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that may be contributing to a person’s distress or mental health challenges. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, and that negative thinking patterns or behaviors can be changed in order to improve our emotional and mental wellbeing. CBT is goal-oriented therapy that focuses on problem-solving techniques to help people reduce their distress. CBT can help people learn to identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, and develop new coping strategies to better manage difficult emotions and situations.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy approach developed by Marsha Linehan. It is based on the idea that people can change their thoughts, feelings and behaviors by learning new skills. DBT focuses on teaching skills in four main areas: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. It combines traditional cognitive-behavioral techniques with elements of Eastern mindfulness practices such as acceptance, non-judgment, and being present in the moment. DBT has been used to effectively treat a variety of mental health disorders including borderline personality disorder, substance use disorders, and depression.

Solution Focused Therapy

Solution Focused therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps focus on a desired future, rather than dwelling on any past issues. This type of therapy helps individuals and especially couples identify and achieve their goals by focusing on the solutions to their problems rather than their problems themselves. It emphasizes the idea that individuals are capable of developing their own solutions and encourages them to be proactive in finding those solutions. The goals of this therapy are to help individuals and couples develop skills for problem-solving, finding solutions to current issues, and improving communication. It is a brief, goal-oriented approach that can be used in both individual and group settings.
