My treatment methods

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (often shortened to DBT) is a skills-based approach to psychotherapy that includes aspects of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy. DBT was originally developed for women coping with borderline personality disorder BPD, but its use has since been expanded to include treatment for a wide variety of individuals and issues. The word “dialectical” refers to this therapy’s focus on learning to balance and tolerate opposites, with the goal of releasing attachment to black-and-white thinking. The philosophical foundation of dialectics underlies DBT therapy, which strives to help individuals accept present realities while also working toward change. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) usually includes both individual talk therapy sessions and group sessions focused on developing four central skill sets. These skills training areas are: Mindfulness: How to be present in the moment and see yourself and the world around you in a non-judgmental way. Distress tolerance: How to cope with unpleasant situations and emotions in healthy ways. Interpersonal effectiveness: How to interact with other people thoughtfully and resolve conflicts effectively. Emotional regulation: How to name your emotions as they occur and manage your reactions to them.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a skill-based approach to talk therapy. When you start CBT, you and your therapist will work together to identify your individual problems and concerns. You’ll also learn to integrate strategic techniques in response to these issues. CBT is based on the understanding that our emotional experiences are directly related to our thoughts, beliefs, and actions – and therefore, it is possible to change our emotional experiences by examining and altering our thoughts and behaviors. The duration of CBT treatment varies, typically ranging from six sessions to several months. You will typically meet with your therapist once a week. Over time, CBT will help you gain self-awareness of: Your unique thinking and behavioral patterns The impact your beliefs and actions have on your overall mental health How you can incorporate techniques and skills to improve your mental health

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is form of psychotherapy geared toward helping you take positive action in your life. ACT involves elements of mindfulness practices and cognitive behavioral therapy. This kind of therapy involves learning to accept unpleasant thoughts, emotions, or experiences without viewing them as problems. Instead, the goal is to define your own personal values and identify ways you can take action that you believe in, even without changing the negative parts of your experience. Language is very important in ACT as well. It theorizes that changing the way you describe a problem can actually change your experience of it as well. ACT is usually short-term, meaning that it is designed to be used over the course of only a few sessions with a therapist.

Trauma-Focused CBT

Trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (TF-CBT) is a short-term type of talking therapy that involves both parent and child. TF-CBT was developed specifically to treat children and teenagers who had experienced trauma. It has a very strong base of evidence supporting its efficacy. TF-CBT aims to help young people and their and caregivers to (1): Learn about trauma Learn coping skills and strategies for regulating emotions and reducing stress To work through and process the trauma Learn how to cope with reminders of the trauma Help the young person to develop a sense of safety and security
