Additionally, we accept a wide range of insurance policies and will always work with you to develop an affordable treatment plan.
How Do You Approach Individual Therapy?
We practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which are skills-based strategies that are designed to relieve symptoms for those who are struggling with mental illness. These research-based strategies have been proven to be very effective techniques when used in treatment. Another research-based therapy that we often utilize, Interpersonal Therapy, is based on the principle that the way people communicate and interact with others has a direct effect on their mental health.
Additionally, we assist our clients in addressing long term issues in order to understand the cause of their symptoms and adopt new thinking or behavior patterns to prevent further distress. We accomplish this using techniques from a number of psychodynamic approaches. This strategy often links events of the past with current behavior patterns to help the client understand why they are experiencing current symptoms.
A 'Person-Centered' approach to treatment is often utilized by therapists when there is a need for the client to have an opportunity to develop a sense of self. This technique helps to create an environment where the client can realize how their attitudes, feelings, and behavior are being negatively affected.
Play Therapy is the most often utilized approach when working with children who will not benefit from talk therapy. Often, this technique is utilized between the ages of three and ten.
Children are able to express their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors through play, which allows the therapist to engage the child at this level and create change in symptoms through a play-based model. The most effective approach will be determined by both the client and therapist during the first couple of sessions.
