Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the cognitive model that our thoughts and perceptions influence the way we feel and behave.  The theory of CBT is that our thoughts and perceptions are often faulty or distorted and therefore the feelings and behaviors that we have in response to those thoughts are also unhelpful and oftentimes self-defeating.  CBT involves examining our relationship to our thoughts and identifying patterns of thinking that undermine our emotional well-being. 

Meditation and Contemplative Practices

There is increasing interest in our culture in meditation and there is a growing body of research that supports various forms of meditation in the treatment of mental health. We offer our clients opportunities to explore various forms of meditation in therapy and provide resources for them to develop a meditation practice that supports their emotional health goals. 

Heart Math Biofeedback

Understanding the bidirectional relationship between mind and body and the impact of our thoughts and emotions on our physiology can empower us to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression more effectively. Heartmath biofeedback protocols leverage the tremendous influence the heart has over other systems of the body to help us restore balance and change perceptions. Biofeedback helps to illustrate this powerful relationship and restore a sense of control that sometimes feels lost in the face of anxiety, worry, panic, sadness, hopelessness and anger. 

Functional Medicine

The functional medicine model is an individualized, client-centered, science-based approach that empowers clients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of mental illness and promote optimal wellness. Functional medicine in mental health care includes dietary modifications,  amino acid therapy, and supplementation of specific vitamins and minerals.  

Freespira

Freespira is an innovative digital therapeutic proven to significantly reduce or eliminate panic attacks and PTSD symptoms by training users to normalize breathing pattern irregularities. 

The Gottman Method for Couples

The Gottman Method approach is based on the Sound House Theory, which identifies the essential foundations of any relationship. The Gottman Method aims to improve verbal communication, increase intimacy, increase respect, increase affection, remove barriers to conflict resolution and create more empathy and compassion within relationships.

Autogenic Training 

Autogenic training (AT) is a technique that teaches your body to respond to your verbal commands. These commands "tell" your body to relax and help control breathing, blood pressure, heartbeat, and body temperature. The goal of AT is to achieve deep relaxation and reduce stress.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is considered a third wave psychotherapy and it improves on certain aspects of CBT and adds mindfulness meditation. Where CBT is often about examining your thoughts and challenging thoughts that are automatic but not rational, ACT is more about noticing your thoughts and choosing not to engage, appreciating that thought is transient and neutral when allowed to simply pass.
