Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy encourages the acceptance of feelings surrounding a behavior. Once those feelings are acknowledged and accepted, it can be easier to change unwanted or intrusive behaviors. By redirecting the energy expended pushing back against feelings, behavior modification becomes more feasible.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Many mood and anxiety disorders are predicated on unwanted and irrational thoughts. Those thoughts then inform interruptive behaviors. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy challenges irrational thoughts directly and strips them of the power they hold. After demonstrating the irrationality of unwanted thoughts through targeted exercises, anxiety can be diffused.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy focuses on the psychosocial. Intended for those who struggle with extreme emotional swings and reactions, DBT provides strategies for dealing with otherwise unchecked emotions. Those who experience spiked levels of anger or sadness or panic can benefit from techniques for managing those reactions.
Group Therapy is an effective method of providing relief for those experiencing mental health issues who are more comfortable operating in a group setting. Being able to heal alongside others and share techniques and experiences can be a powerful agent for promoting mental health. Group Therapy can be successful in treating all kinds of mental health issues.
Mindfulness refers to the therapeutic technique of being in, and fully aware of, the present moment. In a world full of distractions and scattered thoughts, Mindfulness provides relief by encouraging people to center their focus on the moment they are in – their physical surroundings, the task in front of them, their body, and more.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)
EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that result from disturbing life experiences. Much as the physical body recovers from injury, EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma. EMDR therapy helps clients activate their natural healing processes.
