Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of talk psychotherapy that focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs. Considered a "solutions-oriented" form of talk therapy, CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a modified form of cognitive therapy that incorporates mindfulness practices such as meditation and breathing exercises. Using these tools, MBCT therapists teach clients how to break away from negative thought patterns that can cause a downward spiral into an anxious or depressed state so they will be able to fight off/ not attach to automatic negative thoughts before they take hold.

Get creative with us! Art therapy is a great alternative to traditional talk therapy.
Through integrative methods, art therapy engages the mind, body, and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone. Kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual, and symbolic opportunities invite alternative modes of receptive and expressive communication, which can circumvent the limitations of language. Visual and symbolic expression gives voice to experience, and empowers individual, communal, and societal transformation.
Play therapy utilizes play, children's natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words.
The clinician provides selected play materials and facilitates the development of a safe relationship for the child to fully express and explore self (feelings, thoughts, experiences, and behaviors) through play.
EMDR is primarily used to treat PTSD but can also be used to treat a myriad of other diagnoses such as Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, and Gender Identity Disorders.
Through the use of eye movements, EMDR allows patients to reprocess traumatic and/or disturbing experiences, EMDR therapy doesn’t require talking in detail about a distressing issue. EMDR instead focuses on changing the emotions, thoughts or behaviors that result from a distressing experience (trauma). This allows your brain to resume a natural healing process.
EMDR relies on the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model, a theory about how your brain stores memories.
When you undergo EMDR, you access memories of a trauma event in very specific ways. Combined with eye movements and guided instructions, accessing those memories helps you reprocess what you remember from the negative event.
That reprocessing helps “repair” the mental injury from that memory. Remembering what happened to you will no longer feel like reliving it, and the related feelings will be much more manageable.
Grief counseling, also known as bereavement, is a form of therapy intended to help you cope with loss, like the death of a partner, family member, friend, colleague, or pet.
The death of a loved one can cause both emotional and physical pain that can sometimes impair your ability to function.
In the short term, grief counseling can help you navigate the aftermath of a loss and make practical decisions, like funeral arrangements.
In the long run, it can help you accept the loss of your loved one and adapt to life without them.
Family systems therapy is a form of psycghothearpy that helps individuals resolve their problems in the context of their family units, where many problems are likely to begin. Each family member works together with the others to better understand their group dynamic and how their individual actions affect each other and the family unit as a whole. One of the most important premises of family systems therapy is that what happens to one member of a family happens to everyone in the family.
Emotional freedom technique is an evidence based practice that involves tapping the body's meridians in order to release blocked energy and move energy trough the body to promote healing. This self-help technique is used to manage tension in both the body and the mind as well as to promote a stronger mind-body connection.
CAM for mental health allows patients the ability to link emotional and nutritional nourishment. It can help increase mindfulness and decrease dissociation between nutrition and mental health. It assesses how certain foods and herbs can affect an individual's overall stress and pain in both the mind and the body. Often, utilizing CAM for mental health can aid in decreasing dependance on psychiatric medications.
