Therapeutic Modalities



Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages mindfulness to overcome the negative attitudes, thoughts, and feelings that result from difficulties that come with life. ACT builds on a model of accepting our reactions, staying present, and making choices that then enable us to take action. Someone who struggles with social anxiety, continued stress, and depression could benefit from ACT.

Attachment-Based Therapy taps into the experiences that influence your early attachment experiences, or the bonds that developed between you and your early caregivers, in order to resolve the resulting feelings, thoughts, communications, and behaviors that you may have adopted as avoidant coping mechanisms. For someone whose current experiences are being negatively impacted by early trauma, Attachment-Based Therapy may be an effective therapeutic approach. This approach is often used in parent-child and family therapy sessions.

Behavioral Therapy encompasses a wide range of therapies that are leveraged in targeting self-destructive behaviors. Behavior therapy is built on the belief that behaviors are learned and can be unlearned. For someone wanting to let go of unhealthy behaviors that are proving to be harmful, Behavioral Therapy is worth considering.

Brief Psychotherapy is an approach that prioritizes the most efficient treatment. If you seek to achieve a goal within a specific number of sessions or by a certain date, you may opt for Brief Psychotherapy.

Client-Centered Therapy occurs when your therapist takes a step back, and allows you to take a more active and directive role in your healing process. In this approach, your therapist is primarily present to encourage self-acceptance and healing. This is a great method for those who recognize their potential and want to take the lead, but still value the support that a therapist can provide.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term approach that allows you to address your goals by considering the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that support desired behaviors. This is a great option for you if you have a short-term goal you want to achieve, and desire the support and accountability that a therapist can provide.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a form of CBT that targets PTSD with the belief that our thoughts impact our attitudes and feelings about our past trauma. The implicit goal is that, over 12 sessions, you are able to turn the experiences that hurt you into ones that empower you. CPT is a great modality for someone that wants to change the ways that their trauma presents itself in their day-to-day lives.

Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) encourages people to respond to their experiences with compassion. CFT is a great choice for you if you struggle with shame and self-criticism. CFT can help you nurture compassion for yourself and others

Eclectic Therapy is an open approach that adapts to your needs. It brings together a number of different therapies, depending on your goals. Eclectic Therapy is a great option if you’re having trouble deciding which form of therapy may best assist you, as Eclectic Therapists are seasoned in various modalities.

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is founded on the belief that the exploration and understanding of our feelings are key to our healing and identity. Your Emotion-Focused therapist may observe patterns and help you recognize how your attachments impact your ability to have positive and healthy relationships with yourself and others. As emotional attachments vary with each individual, EFT is a great option for couples and, more specifically, in intercultural relation

Gestalt Therapy is another holistic form of therapy that encourages you to explore your relationship with different parts of the world outside of your experiences, in order to understand how those relationships impact your experiences. Gestalt Therapy is a great option for someone who is comfortable healing from conflict through role playing.

Grief Therapy addresses the emotions and thoughts that follow the loss of a loved one or pet. Grief Therapy is successful at managing pain and processing memories that you shared with the deceased in a way that is healing and positive for you.

Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) is a form of couples counseling that views challenges as opportunities for connection, understanding, healing, and growth. This approach was founded on the belief that experiences in your childhood relationship affect that relationships you have in adulthood. This is a great option for those that are comfortable exploring the underlying roots of their triggers, habits, and communication.

Mindfulness is the practice of being present and aware of your thoughts, feelings, and experience from moment to moment. This is an ideal practice for someone wanting to increase their self-awareness.

Motivational Interviewing helps you make decisions for yourself with conviction, based on motivation and positivity. This is a great form of therapy if your quality of life is negatively impacted by your indecisiveness and uncertainty.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) combines philosophy and science to address the emotional and behavioral challenges that you have. REBT is founded on the idea that our beliefs about our experiences shape our future experiences, and thus focuses on changing the beliefs that we have about our experiences.

Strength-Based Therapy focuses on your internal strengths and resources as tools for overcoming failures, pain, and trauma. Your relationship with your therapist is collaborative, open, and non-hierarchical. Your community is viewed as a support system of resources, as opposed to being viewed as an obstacle.

If you or a loved one is experiencing a crisis, please go to your nearest emergency room or call crisis line at 988 or call 911.
