Guided by evidence-based therapeutic methods
We provide an environment for open dialogue and tailor our approach to the specific situation.
We integrate elements of various evidence-based modalities to enrich the therapy process:
Individual Therapy Methods
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a practical and solution-focused psychotherapy that can yield positive changes in thinking, behavior, and emotional responses. CBT has been extensively studied using scientific methods, and the research has demonstrated its effectiveness in addressing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and more.
This therapeutic method provides useful tools to identify and challenge inaccurate thoughts, cultivate realistic alternatives, and master problem-solving techniques and coping strategies.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based therapy method that aims to enhance psychological flexibility. The ACT method provides an evidenced-based approach to improving mental health, encouraging individuals to commit to their values and move towards a more purposeful experience.
ACT differs from other forms of CBT therapy by focusing on accepting and embracing thoughts and feelings rather than changing them. By practicing ACT techniques and clarifying core values, you can work towards greater acceptance and engage more fully in the things you care about.
Positive psychology focuses on understanding how positive emotions, strengths, and virtues contribute to a meaningful and fulfilling life. Positive psychology emphasizes clients’ strengths and positive qualities by exploring unique strengths, setting meaningful goals, and incorporating various techniques such as gratitude exercises, mindfulness practices, and fostering positive relationships.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is an insight-oriented treatment approach that explores how past experiences shape present behaviors. At times, what we learned from past formative experiences can interfere with present-day functioning, getting in the way of finding satisfaction in relationships or work.
Psychodynamic therapy facilitates thoughtful exploration of deep-rooted behavior patterns with the goal of gaining insight that informs positive changes in the present.
Couples Counseling Methods
The Gottman Method
Developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman over the last four decades, this method focuses on improving communication and empowering partners to approach conflict in a constructive manner. The Gottman approach helps couples develop practical skills and strategies to improve their relationship through empathy, understanding, and positive interactions.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
This research-backed method emphasizes deepening emotional connections for a more fulfilling relationship. By identifying negative interaction patterns that undermine intimacy, the EFT process guides couples in discovering ways to promote mutual understanding and closeness.
Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy
Integrating principles from various therapeutic modalities, IBCT focuses on relationship satisfaction by addressing thoughts and behaviors contributing to distress. This approach helps couples navigate dysfunctional interaction cycles, develop acceptance strategies, and pursue positive change with the aim of building a more resilient relationship.
