Our Treatment Approaches

DBT

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an intensive treatment originally developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan to treat suicidal clients who meet criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder and those struggling with other mood-related problems, self-injurious behavior, and frequent hospitalization. DBT is often the treatment of choice for emotion regulation, eating disorders, family/relationship problems, anger, depression, substance abuse and trauma. DBT integrates Eastern Mindfulness and Buddhist Zen techniques with cognitive behavioral therapy approaches.

CBT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative and practical therapeutic approach that has been effective in hundreds of clinical trials for treating a variety of disorders, including anxiety, depression, and adjustment-related problems. CBT adopts a present-oriented and structured approach to therapy, which focuses on the relationship between a person’s thoughts (or cognitions), emotions, and behaviors, and the way in which they influence one another.

Exposure

Exposure therapy is an effective treatment developed to help people confront their fears. When people are fearful of something, they tend to avoid the feared objects, activities, or situations. Although avoidance might help reduce feelings of fear in the short term, over the long term these feelings usually increase and worsen. Exposure therapy enables psychologists to create a safe environment where they can "expose" individuals to the feared object, activity, or situation and help to break the pattern of avoidance and fear.
