Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based approach to counseling that works to help clients conceptualize the connection between their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Through CBT, clients learn skills to help recognize and respond to unhelpful patterns of thinking that can lead to distress and maladaptive behaviors. Our therapists work with clients to help them identify and modify these patterns, leading to improved overall wellbeing.

 

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a type of interviewing that engages the client in the process of change. This approach helps people to explore and resolve ambivalence about making positive changes in their lives. It is based on the principles of respect, empathy, and understanding in order to help the client move toward personal goals and healthier life choices.

 

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a short-term, evidence-based therapy that helps individuals understand the impact of life changes and attachment styles on their relationships. Through IPT, clients learn how to effectively communicate and build meaningful connections with others, and gain an appreciation of what healthy relationships look like.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based therapy that helps individuals process traumatic memories. Our experienced therapist, Paula Whidden uses EMDR to help clients reduce the intensity of negative feelings associated with traumatic memories and improve their overall wellbeing. EMDR is a powerful tool that can bring relief to those stuck in the past.

 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a type of counseling that assists clients in gaining emotional balance. Through the use of skills training, it helps individuals become better equipped to regulate their emotions and interact with others in a more positive and effective way. DBT also teaches mindfulness, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness, allowing clients to learn how to approach life with greater self-confidence and acceptance.

Gottman level 1 couples counseling is an evidence-based approach that helps couples strengthen their relationships teaching them the “Four Horsemen” of the Relationship Apocalypse, which are defensiveness, stonewalling, criticism, and contempt.

Couples are coached on how to better communicate and understand each other, build trust, and create a deeper connection.
