Methodology

Our Approach:

In our sessions, we (14 clinicians) practice standard psychotherapy with a focus on psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. These approaches are collaborative and dialogue-based — meaning that we’ll work together throughout the therapy process to help you develop healthier, effective habits and coping mechanisms.
We encourage a supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment — one that lets you feel free to talk honestly about thought and behavior patterns that are currently preventing you from living life to its fullest.

Treatment Orientation:
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Dialectical (DBT)
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
  • Integrative Health and Holistic Therapy
  • Loss and Grief Therapy
  • Mindfulness Based Therapy
  • Supportive Group Work
  • Trauma Focused Therapy
Modality:
  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Family
