Our Integrative Counseling Approaches
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
In utilizing ACT, clients work on focusing less on struggling with and avoiding their negative emotions, but rather accepting these feelings for what they are, but not letting them be barriers to pursuing a meaningful life.
ACT is about:
Accepting your internal experience.
Choosing a valued direction.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT works to identify and investigate faulty and destructive beliefs about one’s self and the world, and learning how to reevaluate and counter these thought patterns.
CBT also works towards recognizing unhealthy learned behaviors, and using techniques to take action in overcoming obstacles and creating change.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
DBT is used for a variety of issues and concerns, to help individuals manage negative emotions, cope with stress, and decrease relationship conflict.
DBT teaches strategies on how to cope with stress, recognize and regulate emotions, improve interpersonal communication and relationships with others, and live in the present moment.
Mindfulness is the practice of being present. Mindfulness focuses on attending to the present environment, where we are, what we are doing, and how our body feels, without ascribing any judgement.
It is training the mind to be fully engaged in the present moment, without judgment or distraction.
Positive Psychology works on minimizing attention on negative situations and helps the individual further develop hope and positively improve their life.
Positive Psychology also helps encourage individuals to develop and achieve their goals, cultivate relationships with others, develop a sense of gratitude, and actively pursue a meaningful life.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
SFBT is a goal-directed treatment that focuses on the client’s present and future directions. SFBT works on identifying specific goals and exploring possible solutions to make positive changes in one’s life.
SFBT also helps empower the individual to identify areas of resiliency in their own life.
