Therapy Modalities

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a therapeutic approach that blends acceptance and mindfulness techniques with commitment and behavior change strategies. It focuses on helping people embrace their thoughts, feelings, and emotions rather than suppressing, avoiding, or controlling them. Rather than focusing on what is outside of your control, you’ll instead focus on what you can personally control.

ACT is beneficial for a variety of mental health conditions, including trauma, chronic pain, eating disorders, OCD, anxiety, depression, and stress. It’s also a fundamental tool to improve overall well-being. 

With the help of therapy, you’ll gain confidence in your ability to handle thoughts and feelings without needing to control them.

Attachment-Based Therapy focuses on understanding how the bonds formed early in life impacts emotional health and relationships in later life. It is commonly used for individuals who are experiencing challenges with their interpersonal relationships, have experienced trauma, or struggle with emotional disorders. It can also be used with parents or guardians wanting to strengthen or improve their relationship with their children.

By going back in time, you can gain a better understanding of your behavior patterns and subconscious attachment styles. You can then work towards redeveloping different patterns using techniques such as cognitive reframing, emotion-focused strategies, and mindfulness.

If you’re ready to form better or healthier interpersonal relationships, gain a better understanding of yourself, reduce anxiety, and increase your capacity to manage emotions, Attachment-Based Therapy may be for you. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that is focused on helping individuals identify and manage the underlying causes of their mental and emotional struggles. CBT is a highly effective treatment method used to reduce symptoms associated with a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders, and substance abuse. By examining the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, CBT can help individuals gain insight into how their thoughts create their feelings and behaviors, thereby empowering them to make lasting changes in their lives.

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is a powerful, evidence-based approach to counseling, focused on helping individuals recognize and process their emotions. By exploring underlying patterns of emotion, clients gain insight into their behavior and the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and actions. EFT is especially beneficial for those struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues. Through this therapy, clients can learn to express and manage their emotions in a healthy way, resulting in improved mental health and overall wellbeing.

Some of our therapists are trained in the Gottman Method techniques. These techniques are used in couples therapy with the focus being on building trust, enhancing intimacy, and developing better communication. With the help of a therapist, you will work together to identify and address patterns of negative communication and behaviors contributing to challenges in the relationship. The specific experience will vary depending on the therapist and your needs; however, it may include role-playing and guided conversations. By going through these scenarios, you can start to improve your communication and conflict resolution skills. The Gottman Method is used for a variety of relationship challenges, including conflict related to sex and intimacy, parenting and family dynamics, and communication challenges.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy is based on the idea that the mind is made up of multiple sub-personalities or “parts”. Each of these parts has its own viewpoints, emotions, and characteristics. 

In IFS Therapy, the therapist will help the client identify and understand each of the parts that make them whole. By deepening the relationship with each part, there is an opportunity to gain insight into the patterns and beliefs causing distress.

IFS is used for a variety of concerns, including trauma, depression, anxiety, and interpersonal relationships. It can also be used for personal growth, self-understanding, and self-development.

Interpersonal Therapy is used to improve relationships and social functioning. It uncovers how our social interactions impact our mental health. Interpersonal Therapy is used for individuals going through life transitions or experiencing other concerns such as depression, grief, anxiety, or interpersonal difficulties. 

With IPT, a therapist guides the client through their current relationships and social roles to uncover any subconscious problematic interpersonal patterns contributing to distress. The focus is on improving communication skills, learning to express emotions in a positive and effective way, and addressing issues within current relationships.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy is a therapeutic approach that integrates mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It aims to help individuals cultivate awareness and acceptance of their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. The goal of Mindfulness-Based Therapy is to reduce the distress caused by thoughts, emotions, and experiences to improve overall well-being. The exact approach will depend on your needs and your therapist. However, you will be encouraged to engage in meditation and/or mindfulness practices. This may include breathing exercises, mindful movement, and body scans. As part of Mindfulness-Based Therapy, you may be asked to work towards identifying and challenging negative thought patterns so you can develop positive coping skills. 

This modality is used for a variety of mental health concerns, including anxiety, stress, depression, and chronic pain. By creating an increased sense of connection to the self and others, you can experience a greater sense of purpose in life.

With Narrative Therapy, you will focus on the stories you create about yourself, your experiences, and others. To create change, you will work towards rewriting these stories to be more empowering and positive. This can ultimately impact your overall quality of life and the strength of the relationships you have with others. With a therapist, you will explore your life experiences to uncover how they have shaped both your beliefs and identity. Narrative Therapy is often used for anxiety, depression, and trauma, but it may also be used for a variety of other mental health concerns. As a result of Narrative Therapy, you may feel a greater sense of control over your life and have a new perspective on past experiences.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a collaborative approach to therapy that focuses on identifying and achieving goals in the present while keeping the future in mind. SFBT is widely used to help people with a range of psychological and emotional conditions such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship issues, and more. It is based on the belief that clients are experts in their own lives and have the capacity to resolve their own issues. By focusing on what’s working and what can be changed, SFBT offers a positive outlook and a sense of empowerment that can help clients achieve their desired outcomes quickly and efficiently.
