Treatment Modalities 

Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Solution Focused Brief Therapy is evidenced-based, short-term and goal focused therapy that helps clients focus on finding solutions rather than dwelling on problems. This type of treatment helps people to create realistic goals in order to achieve long-term change.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a short-term, goal oriented therapy that focuses on changing problematic patterns of thinking and behavior. CBT is evidenced-based and is considered first-line treatment for many mood and anxiety disorders. 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is a third-wave behavioral therapy that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies to increase psychological flexibility. This modality helps people embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting against them. It is evidenced-based and offers good success in treating mood and anxiety disorders.

EMDR
Eye Movement Densensitization & Reprocessing

EMDR is an integrative therapeutic approach that has been proven effective for treatment with PTSD and acute stress disorders. EMDR works by reducing sensitivity to traumatic experiences and distressing feelings. For more information on EMDR treatment please visit www.emdria.org
