Psychodynamic Psychotherapy focuses on revealing and resolving the unconscious conflicts that can cause emotional suffering in day-to-day life. Within the boundaries of a safe, confidential, and therapeutic relationship, the patient is encouraged to speak freely about thoughts and emotions, and about experiences and fantasies. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is effective for a wide range of mental health symptoms, including depression, anxiety, panic and stress-related physical ailments, and the benefits of the therapy grow after treatment has ended.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the theory that our thoughts have substantial control over our feelings and behaviors. The benefit of this type of treatment is that if we can change the way we think then we can change the way we feel and act even if there are negative environmental factors. Many studies show that individuals who suffer from depression and various forms of anxiety, including phobias, obsessive-compulsive, and panic disorders, find this type of treatment successful and beneficial.
Play Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses play to communicate with and help children prevent or resolve psychosocial challenges. Play therapy can also be used as a tool to determine the cause of symptoms.
Family Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that brings a family together to solve shared problems. Instead of working with each individual separately, family members work collaboratively and in return strengthen the family system as a whole.
Couples Therapy can be utilized by any two individuals in a committed relationship. While engaging in treatment, a couple will have the opportunity to develop effective communication and problem-solving techniques. Couples are able to learn how to build upon the strength of their relationship and meet the demands and stress that everyday life can bring.
Dialectic Behavior Therapy
Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) involves mindfulness and utilization of specific life skills to regulate emotions and behaviors. This therapeutic approach teaches people to be aware of their emotions, to understand and accept their feelings, and to practice self-regulation in interpersonal relationships. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has been proven to effectively treat a variety of personality and mood-related symptoms and behaviors.
Intensive Therapeutic Therapy provides a goal-oriented, comprehensive treatment plan that offers support and treatment to children, adolescents, and families in crisis. This program is beneficial for children, adolescents, and young adults with severe anxiety, depression, mood swings, school refusal, family conflict, psychosis, trauma and loss, and interpersonal difficulties. Multiple sessions a week, including weekly parent guidance, close collaboration with psychiatry, and weekly contacts with school help manage the environment and provide an opportunity for change and success.
In-Home Family Therapy
In-Home Family Therapy can help create a calm, safe and nurturing home environment - something that can seem at times like a near impossibility. The goal of the in-home family treatment model is to use components of Family Therapy within the home setting where the problems often originate. Individualized goals and interventions, as well as “in the moment” coaching, are used to help set into motion the power to change.
Group Therapy is an efficient and effective form of treatment in which a small group of participants work together on a variety of therapeutic goals. Groups provide an opportunity to learn about, to explore, and to work on social relationships. Currently we run a wide variety of groups for children, adolescents and young adults that include concepts from Dialectal Behavior Therapy, therapeutic drama, social skills curricula, and play-based recreational therapy.
