Always delivered by highly trained professionals with a wide variety of
specialties and experience, we will match you with the right therapist.
Our areas of specialty include:
Cognitive and behavioral therapies addressing thought patterns and behaviors that lead to distress
Interpersonal therapy focusing on one’s relationships
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional
distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated
studies show that by using EMDR people can experience the benefits of
psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. EMDR therapy
shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as
the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body
works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates
the wound, it festers and causes pain. The brain’s information processing
system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked
or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound
festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing
resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR training
sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.
TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavior Therapy) is one of the most well-supported interventions in the child trauma field.
Multiple randomized, controlled clinical trials have demonstrated the
efficacy of TF-CBT for children who have PTSD symptoms related to sexual
abuse, and the treatment also has been applied successfully to children
with PTSD symptoms resulting from other traumatic events.
Personality Dimensions is the latest evolution in presenting Personality Temperament Theory.
It builds on research conducted in Canada over a period or two decades,
and the foundations established by the work of Carl Jung, David Keirsey,
Linda Berens, as well as a history of Temperament that spans 25 centuries.
Individual and Group CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management), is an intervention protocol developed specifically for dealing with traumatic
events. It is a formal, highly structured and professionally recognized
process for helping those involved in a critical incident to share their
experiences, vent emotions, learn about stress reactions and symptoms
and given referral for further help if required. It is not psychotherapy.
It is a confidential, voluntary and educative process, sometimes called
'psychological first aid'.
Motivational Interviewing is a method that works on facilitating and engaging intrinsic motivation
within the client in order to change behavior. MI is a goal-oriented,
client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping
clients to explore and resolve ambivalence.
Play Therapy is a theoretical model of psychotherapy which uses the therapeutic powers
of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and
achieve optimal growth and development. Specialized therapists utilize
play therapy to help children express their thoughts and feelings. Through
play, therapists may help children learn more adaptive behaviors when
there are emotional or social skills deficits.
CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) is an evidenced-based manualized treatment protocol that has been found
effective for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and
other symptoms following traumatic events. It focuses on how the traumatic
event is construed and coped with by a person who is trying to regain
a sense of mastery and control in his or her life.
