Psychotherapy

We use a variety of psychotherapy modalities to help you uncover the strength within yourself to make changes.  Our primary approach is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT.) CBT aims to help clients identify the dysfunctional, negative thoughts they might be having. These thoughts have an impact on emotions, which can then trigger problem behaviors. Through therapy, clients will learn to identify negative thoughts, and restructure the thoughts in order to improve their ability to cope with stress, anxiety, and/or depression. Specific homework assignments are given to the client, and those assignments are then processed in the next session. CBT has been scientifically proven to reduce symptoms in clients who have depression and anxiety disorders. 

 

Other approaches utilized include EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS,) Trauma-Informed Therapy, Humanistic, Positive Psychology, and Pastoral Counseling. Psychotherapy can be incredibly helpful in the treatment of:
