Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) offers the opportunity to recognize the connection between our thoughts, feelings and behavior. CBT builds skills in modifying the impact of unhelpful thinking patterns, assisting in changing our behavioral patterns and coping with stressors in a more positive manner.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Mindfulness is a practice of paying attention to the present moment and responding skillfully. Mindfulness can be cultivated through a formal meditation practice, such as Insight Meditation, and is also a skill that can be utilized in our daily life and relationships to more fully acknowledge and accept feelings, sensations and thoughts as they arise.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is an evidence-based psychotherapy that helps clients to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that result from overwhelming life experiences. Clients often find that they experience insights in EMDR therapy that once took years for traditional talk therapy to address. EMDR therapy demonstrates that the mind heals from psychological trauma as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you injure yourself, your body works to heal the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it slows down the healing process and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing can continue. Similarly, if neurological processing is blocked due to the impact of a disturbing or repeatedly difficult experience, the thoughts, sensations, images and emotions associated with the experience can get stuck, causing intense suffering in both body and mind. Once the block is removed, the brain is able to process the experience as normal and healing resumes. Using EMDR within the context of the therapeutic relationship, clients are assisted in activating their natural healing process.
