Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an empirically validated treatment that utilizes traditional cognitive behavioral interventions and mindfulness skills to treat clients with self injurious behaviors, mood dysregulation, and borderline personality disorder. We offer skills training to obtain knowledge of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) targets maladaptive thoughts and behavior that cause stress. CBT aims to substitute maladaptive cognitions and behaviors with more constructive behaviors.
Compassion Focused Therapy
Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) promotes well being through facilitating the application of compassion to improve a persons quality of life. We aim to assist clients to understand the nature and causes of suffering in ourselves and in others. We also aim to use compassion to decrease our habits of high shame and self-criticism.
Prolonged Exposure (PE) focuses on reducing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Based on behavioral principles, PE utilizes exposure techniques to improve the clients’ quality of life.
