Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, CBT


This therapeutic modality allows our therapists and clients to form a trusted relationship, in order to address and dissect issues causing distress. CBT uses a practical approach in which the therapist helps the client understand the relationship between beliefs, feelings, and thoughts, and the effect these have on behavior patterns and actions. 

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy, EMDR


EMDR is an information processing therapy, that uses an eight phase approach to address the experiential contributors of a wide range of  pathologies. Our therapists assist clients as they attend  to the past experiences that have set the groundwork for  the current situations that often trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health.  


Emotionally Focused Therapy or Attachment Theory

Our therapists are well versed in attachment theory. Attachment theory is focused on the relationships and bonds between people, including those between a parent and child, and between our friends and partners. Therapists assist clients in understanding how some of their earliest experiences and bonds, have a tremendous impact that continues throughout life, and the understanding that this is “normal,” as it assisted them when young, to improve their chance of survival, but there may be a need for changes in behavior as it relates to relationships today.

Other Services Offered 

Resourcing and Self-Regulation 


 When we cultivate a felt sense of compassion for ourselves, we are resourced to brave the complexities of the mood. Our resourcing practices are designed to prepare for EMDR Therapy, manage anxiety and  depression, alleviate somatic concerns, and to reduce other trauma-related symptoms. The fundamental belief of our teachings and techniques is that, “We are already the wholeness that we seek.” Clients are supported by their psychiatric nurse practitioner, therapist, life coach, or behavioral health technician, to return to the sense that all we desire is already within us. Evidence-based techniques and new found coping skills are used to create personal intention. Our resourcing techniques include: psychiatric services both traditional and holistic, EMDR protocols designed for safety and stabilization, CBT tools, mindfulness exercises, somatic experiences, pain reduction and management exercises, breathing techniques, easy meditations, gentle movements with body awareness, and Yoga Nidra.   

Pain Reduction and Management

Our therapists use EMDR Therapy protocols and somatic techniques by Mark Grant and Peter Levine, to manage and reduce pain by assisting clients in developing strong affect-based resourcing.
