Modalities

Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)

Is a future-focused, goal-directed therapeutic modality that focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Problems are created from the pattern of unhelpful, unconscious thoughts and behaviors.

Dialectical Behavioral-Informed Therapy (DBT)

Similar to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) but adds skills to help you live in the moment, regulate emotions, and improve your relationships with others.

Disclaimer: I do not offer the full DBT protocols: i.e. skills groups, 24/7 access, or have a treatment team.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

Primarily used to treat trauma-related issues. Believes that traumatic material and other adverse life experiences were not appropriate adapted into the body and brain. Using external stimulus in a bi-lateral (across the body) movement helps that material to become adaptive.

Disclaimer: I currently hold a Certificate of Completion for EMDR, which means I’m allowed to provide EMDR services but can’t call myself “trained/certified”.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

A specific approach acknowledges and recognizes the complexity of how trauma influences all parts of a person’s life. Often there’s no one, size fits all approach when addressing trauma, but conducting therapy without re-traumatizing the person is the goal.

Mindfulness

By creating the perspective of having conscious awareness of the present moment, with openness and non-judgmental approach to the experience, creates a space to reconsider/consider what’s happening.
