Our Integrative Counseling Approaches
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
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.
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.
Play Therapy is commonly used when working with children. It can be used to help the child to identify and express their feelings and thoughts, how to communicate and relate with others, and learn social and problem-solving skills. Play therapy can help children better understand and express their feelings and learn how to find and practice solutions.
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.
