Treatment Approach

field path

We use a variety of approaches to address our clients unique needs. Many successful approaches will utilize a foundation of cognitive-behavioral therapy, then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain growth, including  CBT, DBT, EMDR, ACT, Somatic Experiencing, Gottman Therapy, Vibrational Sound Therapy and other evidenced-based therapeutic approaches.

Additionally, there is an established body of research that supports the practice of somatic-based therapies, self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is our honor and mission to help our clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
