We Practice Evidence Based Care!

Our mental health center is committed to providing clinical interventions and programs that are empirically-based and proven to produce positive results. You can learn more about some of our evidence-based practices by clicking on the following links.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a “talk therapy” aimed at developing an awareness of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behavior.  The patient learns to identify and develop skills to manage problematic, thoughts, feelings and behavior in the here and now……..Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a treatment which focuses on patterns of maladaptive thinking and the beliefs that underlie that thinking.  It is an active, skills based, goal directed therapy which focuses on the “here and now”.

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a skills based, cognitive behavioral approach designed to help people decrease problem behaviors and increase skillfulness in the areas of emotion regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and mindfulness. The goal is for those with emotional sensitivity to realize their life worth living.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy that was developed by Francine Shapiro to resolve the development of trauma-related disorders caused by exposure to distressing events such as rape or military combat. According to Shapiro’s theory, when a traumatic or distressing experience occurs, it may overwhelm usual cognitive and neurological coping mechanisms. The memory and associated stimuli of the event are inadequately processed, and are dysfunctionally stored in an isolated memory network. The goal of EMDR therapy is to process these distressing memories, reducing their lingering influence and allowing patients to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms.

Although some clinicians may use EMDR for other problems, its research support is primarily for disorders stemming from distressing life experiences, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

  • Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered, semi-directive therapy which engages patient’s own motivation to change behavior.

  • Trauma Focused CBT

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT) is a psychosocial treatment model designed to treat posttraumatic stress and the related emotional and behavior problems. TFCBT with children involves the parent in parallel sessions to support effective skills building in the child and conjoint parent-child sessions to enhance successful outcomes.
