EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR is a therapy developed by Francine Shapiro. It is a structured approach to reducing or eliminating disturbing thoughts that may be due to post traumatic stress or severe trauma that may be unresolved.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a collaborative effort between the therapist and client. The therapist assists the client in managing or changing his or her thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. In doing so, the client is able to replace maladaptive behaviors with more adaptive behaviors and thoughts.

Dialectical Behavioral Training

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy or DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan. DBT consist of skills training for the client. These skills include Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness Training. When practicing individual DBT, the client and therapist will work together discussing issues that may have come up for the client during the week and  identifying behaviors that may be harmful or maladaptive for the client. Next the client will learn to work on managing thoughts and behaviors using DBT skills.
