What We Do

How counseling can help

Counseling serves as a valuable tool in gaining insights into the obstacles hindering your desired life changes. It equips you with strategies to navigate challenging life events and situations beyond your control. Moreover, a counselor assists in the examination and management of internal pressures and negative self-perceptions.

This process may involve the development of new coping mechanisms or refining existing ones. What sets counseling apart is the impartiality of the counselor, as they are not directly entangled in your specific situation.

Embarking on the counseling journey can be daunting due to fears or embarrassment for some individuals. However, most discover that engaging with an effective counselor provides a sense of relief and renewed hope. This newfound hope arises from confronting difficulties rather than evading them.

Interventions we use

Our providers are trained in a number of evidence-based interventions

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a therapeutic model based on the concept that feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected. CBT therapy challenges negative thoughts and feelings; and helps the client break down overwhelming problems step-by-step. Clients learn to change negative patterns to improve the way they feel and act. It has been shown to be effective with adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, and numerous other mental health diagnoses.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a model used for adolescents and adults to address complex and intense symptoms such as suicidal thoughts or behavior, self-injurious actions, severe emotional dysregulation, and other mental health symptoms. DBT typically includes individual therapy sessions along with a coping skills group.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a behavioral technique that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation to make positive changes. It is a practical, empathetic, client-centered, and short-term process.

Solution-Focused

Focused Therapy is a short-term, goal-focused, strength and evidence-based therapeutic approach that places focus on a person's present and future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences. Solution focused therapy is committed to finding realistic, workable solutions for clients as quickly as possible and can address a wide range of problems, from the normal everyday stressors to the high-impact life events.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR utilizes the natural healing ability of the body through eye movement. Eye movements, similar to those during REM sleep, will be recreated through various possible ways, such as watching the provider's fingers move back and forth, tappers, or a light bar. With repeated sets of eye movements, disturbing memories become less painful and transform into a neutral memory. Because memories are linked in our brain, multiple memories can heal at one time or in a short amount of time, having a dramatic and rapid improvement in many aspects of your life. EMDR can be used to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, panic attacks, depression, anger, phobias, sleep problems, grief and loss, addictions, pain including phantom limb pain, and feelings of worthlessness/low self-esteem.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment approach shown to help children and adolescent’s age 3-18 years and their caregivers overcome trauma-related difficulties. It is shown to reduce negative emotional and behavioral responses following a traumatic event(s). It also helps protective caregivers to cope effectively with their own emotional distress and develop skills to support their child.

Play Therapy

Play is the natural language of children. Play therapy utilizes toys and play to help children express their emotions and experiences instead of using words. A trained therapist can help the child explore emotions and deal with unresolved trauma and the child can lean new coping skills and redirect inappropriate behaviors.
