We provide integrative individual psychotherapy to adolescents and adults. Our practice focuses primarily on supporting young adults, professionals, and expectant/new parents. If you decide to enter therapy with us, your psychologist will work with you to determine a personalized treatment that meets your unique needs. Our doctors have extensive training in a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques and work carefully to integrate these methods to tailor treatment to your goals. We integrate the following therapy approaches into our individual psychotherapy work:
Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses on the unconscious origins of emotional conflict. This approach focuses on self-reflection, examination of past experiences, and exploration of the therapist-patient relationship as a window into the patient’s current relational patterns.
Mindfulness integrates present moment awareness as a tool to help manage difficult emotions. The therapist teaches the practice of present moment awareness through non-judgmental observation of the mind and body, allowing patients to connect with their inner resources for coping.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a trauma treatment that alleviates emotional distress associated with disturbing memories. This approach follows a specific treatment protocol that aims to reduce distressing emotions, thoughts, and physiological sensations associated with the trauma memory.
Somatic psychotherapy is a body-oriented approach that treats unresolved trauma and other stress disorders.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a skills-oriented approach that focuses on the relationship between one’s thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. The therapist teaches techniques to examine and reduce unhelpful thinking, behavioral, and emotional patterns.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a skills-oriented approach that focuses on the dialectic of self-acceptance and change. The therapist validates the patient’s experiences while teaching mindfulness, interpersonal, and affect regulation skills.
