Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Strength-Based and compassion driven, this therapeutic modality focuses on learning about and identifying internal strengths and resources. It utilizes imagination, relationship and trust building techniques in order for clients to find a safe space within themselves to more effectively self-soothe, problem-solve, and make decisions as they pertain to various relationships and situations throughout their lives. As the relationship with the self, strength recognition, and resources grow, so too does self-compassion, confidence, and resilience. This modality teaches clients how to trust internal experiences and how to utilize them to enhance the quality of their lives.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
This modality is excellent for highly sensitive people who struggle with emotion regulation and relationships. DBT focuses on mindfulness, skill acquisition, and effective application of those skills. DBT treatment is highly recommended for those who feel that their lives (both emotional or relational) are in a consistent state of chaos and do not feel that they have the internal and external resources to manage the chaos effectively. Due to the structured nature of this DBT, clients may be asked to complete weekly diary cards, behavior chaining worksheets, and other handouts and will be held to a specific and predictable behavioral protocol. If this sounds like this therapeutic modality is of interest, please make an appointment to learn more details about the behavioral protocol and what you can expect from DBT therapy.
***DBT individual therapy is not a replacement for a structured program. If you are seeking individual DBT therapy, it is possible that after the initial assessment, it may be recommended that you enroll in and complete a DBT program before entering individual DBT therapy.***
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)
How long have you been trying to control your emotions? How much effort has it taken? How do you feel about the results? If it seems like you have been trying to control these emotions for what seems for forever, and you are feeling exhausted and at your wits end, ACT may be a modality that you will find more effective. The premise of this modality is to teach clients how to mindfully acknowledge the things that they do and do not have control over, assess their values, and commit to a value-driven action, despite one’s emotional experience. In this therapeutic modality, clients learn to separate their identity from their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, increase distress tolerance, and find a more genuine way to approach their lives.
Improv is a unique and fun way to approach group and individual therapy. It addresses issues surrounding social anxiety, generalized anxiety, stress and emotion management, as well as building on social skills. The use of improv in therapy allows clients to practice risk-assessment and risk-taking skills in real-time within the context of the safety and support of the therapist (and group members, should improv be used within a group setting). Improv allows clients to access and build on their strengths, allowing clients access to more creative problem-solving skills, an increase in cognitive flexibility, and ability to read social skills with increasing accuracy and confidence. Improv promotes relationship and social skills building, along with learning how to let go of perfectionism and embrace learning through mistakes and self-compassion.
