Accelerated Resolution Therapy

The process is shorter than traditional therapy and is very effective in resolving trauma. The therapist guides the client through a series of eye movements that help to release the emotional impact of the trauma. The ART therapist also helps the client to reframe the event so that it no longer has the same emotional charge.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that was developed by Marsha M. Linehan to help people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It is a highly structured, skills-based therapy that focuses on helping people learn new coping mechanisms to manage their emotions and behaviors.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of therapy that deals with present-day challenges rather than delving into past history or childhood experiences. It is a structured approach that identifies specific goals and proposes techniques to help clients meet those goals in a short time frame.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Children (DBT-C)

DBT-C is specifically designed for pre-adolescents who have trouble regulating intense emotions and therefore tend to act impulsively, overreact to situations, resist change, think in absolutes, and lash out verbally or physically when they are emotionally overwhelmed.

Eye Movement Desensitize/Reprocess Therapy (EMDR)

EMDR therapy helps individuals recover from distressing life experiences that show up repetitively, as well as trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression and panic disorders. It is a successful, evidence-based treatment that helps to diminish the effects of these experiences.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy-Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE)

In DBT-PE, clients initially work with the therapist to establish safety and gain the skills needed to cope with addressing trauma. While continuing in all modes of standard DBT, DBT-PE then addresses memories and beliefs related to the client’s trauma history.

 

Parent Child Interaction (PCIT) Therapy

The ultimate goal of PCIT is to enhance the parent-child relationship by helping caregivers learn ways to relate to their children warmly while also having a predictable and consistent output. PCIT also teaches caregivers how to structure and follow through with effective limits.

Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS) Therapy

PEERS has been expanded to develop other social skills geared toward  career advancement, dating, friendship, educational classes, and other life experiences. We offer individual and group sessions that are designed to help you gain the skills needed to live a more independent and successful life.

Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) Therapy

IRT, or Imago relationship therapy, is a form of couples therapy that evaluates points of conflict in a relationship and reframes them as opportunities to understand, learn, heal, and grow. It is based on the idea that the conflict between two people can be a source of healing, and that resolving those conflicts can lead to deeper connection.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Therapy

Mindfulness and mindfulness stress reduction is designed to help individuals live their lives to the fullest, and to do so by actually living in this moment. What this means is that instead of getting stuck in the past, worrying about the future, or ruminating over thoughts and emotions, mindfulness encourages individuals to stay grounded in what’s happening now.

Emotional Fitness Program (EFP) Therapy

With a combination of psychotherapy and DBT skills work, the Emotion Fitness Program (EFP) is considered a lower-intensity alternative to DBT without the full commitment of the DBT program. EFP gives clients the space to explore current and past relationships, stresses, coping skills, and life satisfaction.

Family Therapy

Family therapy helps improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen relationships within a family. Therapists work collaboratively with family members to address issues, enhance understanding, and promote positive change. This approach fosters a supportive environment for individuals and the family as a whole, fostering emotional well-being and healthier dynamics.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Therapy

EFT operates on the idea that the human body is like an electrical circuit with a constant flow of energy that can be disrupted by stressors. These disruptions lead to negative emotions and pain. EFT uses finger tapping on specific acupressure points while focusing on the problem to restore the body’s energy balance. The tapping is meant to release negative emotions and provide relief.
