Our Approach 

Different therapists have different ways of helping people with their problems. Some therapists focus on the past and how it affects the present, some focus on the present and how to change it, and some therapists focus on the future and how to achieve it. These are called approaches in therapy, and they can vary depending on the therapist's training, beliefs, and style. There is no one right or wrong approach, but some may suit you better than others depending on your situation and goals.

Acceptance & Commitment

Helps you live in the present and accept your thoughts and feelings without judging them. Helps you move on from hard emotions so you can focus on healing instead of being stuck in the negative.

Dialectical-Behavioral

Helps people who have trouble with their emotions. It teaches them skills like mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Solution-Focused

Helps focus on goals and solutions, than the problems and causes. Based on the idea that you have the resources and strengths to overcome your difficulties and you can create positive change.

Psychodynamic

Explores the connection between a patient's past experiences - often from childhood - and their current mindset. Helps you understand how feelings, thoughts, & behaviors are influence by things that you may not be aware of.

Trauma-Focused

 Uses different techniques to help you process traumatic experiences. Some involve visualizing, talking or thinking about the traumatic memory. Others focus on changing unhelpful beliefs about the trauma. 

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy [CBT]

Helps you change your thinking and behavior patterns. Works by helping you become aware of negative or irrational thoughts that cause distress and then challenging them with more realistic and helpful ones. 

Mindfulness-Based

Uses meditation, breathing exercises, & body awareness as coping mechanisms for stress.  Helps people pay attention to the present moment, without judgment or distraction. 

Narrative

Helps you rewrite your stories and change your perspectives. Based on the idea that you are not defined by your problems but how you respond to them. Helps you identify strengths, values. and goals.

Structural 

Type of family therapy that focuses on the interactions between family members. Uses family mapping, role-play, boundary-making, and reframing to help families communicate  better and resolve conflicts.
