Helping You to Understand What is Available
Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) combines clinical research, the therapist’s expertise, and the client’s personal preferences and values to ensure the most effective therapeutic interventions.
Types of Therapy
We believe each client deserves an individualized treatment approach, as one size never fits all. We ensure an evidence based practice by collaborating with you to understand your background, the difficulties you’re facing, and the best therapeutic approach to meet your needs. We are trained in a variety of well-researched therapy approaches. To learn more about the therapeutic approaches we offer, see below:
This therapy is based on the belief that our past experiences greatly impact our current experiences and relationships. The focus of this modality is to help you gain insight into your inner world. This process helps you become aware of patterns that occur in your behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and relationships. Learn more here.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
This treatment approach sees the problems people experience as based on negative ways of thinking and learned patterns of unhelpful behavior. One way to find relief from day-to-day problems is to increase coping by shifting these thinking and behavior patterns. In order to do this, there are a number of well-researched strategies that your therapist will use to help you recognize when you fall into old patterns and examine whether those thoughts and behaviors are helpful. This therapy targets problems occurring in the here and now. Learn more here.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
A psychotherapy approach that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are a result of disturbing life experiences. This approach is designed to support your brains own healing mechanisms. EMDR is a powerful therapeutic approach that allows people to heal the symptoms and emotional distress that result from a disturbing life experience. Learn more here.
Part Identification and Integration
This integrative approach, conceptualized by Dr. Cole and Dr. Narayan, is based upon Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral theory. It uses techniques that allow clients to deeply understand the complexities of their minds, as well as make modalities like CBT more meaningful and user-friendly to shift thinking and improve overall functioning. To put it simply, all of us have many parts to who we are. Understanding where a part came from and whether that part is hurting or helping us allows us to live more in alignment with the life we truly want. Learn more here.
Sand Tray Therapy
This is a form of expressive therapy that allows people (children, adults, and families) to construct a scene using miniature toy figures and sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of your own life and allows you the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self. Your therapist will work closely with you to use the sand tray as a tool for you to share deep thoughts and feelings in a way that can be more expansive than words alone. Learn more here.
This modality honors your child’s unique developmental level and looks for ways of helping in the “language” of the child – play! Therapeutic play takes place in a safe, comfortable playroom, and encourages free expression. By observing your child’s choices, decisions, and play style, the therapist will have an understanding of how to support your child’s needs. Children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new and positive problem solving skills. Learn more here.
