You may be wondering what these treatments are, and how they will help. Questioning what is right for you is an important part of your treatment journey. I am available for a free phone consultation to assist you with figuring out what treatment approaches would best fit and effectively treat your issues.
Below is a brief description of some of the treatment techniques that I use, and the different issues they may effectively treat.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapy treatment that focuses on understanding how we think and how these thoughts lead to different emotions and behaviors. In general, CBT breaks down the pattern of thinking-feeling-behaving. Once the pattern is understood, a person is better able to change unwanted behaviors. CBT is a collaborative approach with the client and therapist working together to understand changes and behavior.
CBT is considered the gold standard for evidence-based therapy. If you are motivated and ready to make lasting changes in your thinking and actions, CBT is a great place to start. For more information, follow the link below: www.beckinstitute.org/what-is-cognitive-behavioral-therapy/
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a treatment that is both challenging and interesting in both it's concepts and practical applications. Because it is a fundamentally a value-based treatment, it marries nicely with coaching. In many ways it is a blend of psychotherapy techniques and coaching techniques. As the name implies, it focuses on the mindful connections of acceptance and the process of commitment to value-based actions.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is similar in treatment strategy to CBT, except DBT focuses on four specific skill building areas: emotion regulation, interpersonal communication, distress tolerance, and mindfulness.
What I love most about this approach is that it focuses on actual skills to develop in a holistically oriented way. Emphasis on CBT and mindfulness are at the heart of this treatment. For more information follow the links below: behavioraltech.org/resources/whatisdbt.cfm www.dbtselfhelp.com/
