Treatments Modalities 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy​

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on identifying maladptave (incorrect) ways of thinking. Treatment with a CBT therapist tends to focus on identifying faulty patterns of thinking, challenging them and changing them leading to less difficulty in overall functioning. 

Exposure and Response Prevention

 ERP is often coupled with CBT and involves the repeated and gradual process of exposing a patient to a feared event/object/outcome and teaching them to utilize a different behavioral response to that feared event/object/outcome. The expectation for treatment is that over time the individuals fear will diminish, their tolerance of their negative feelings will increase, and their behaviors will change as a result.

Behavioral Activation Therapy

​ Behavioral activation focuses on movement and activity. Most individuals suffering from depressive disorders will avoid, isolate and withdrawal from all of the things in life that they enjoy. BAT focuses on getting an individual reengaged with their life and the things they enjoyed prior to the depressive disorder.

Habit Reversal Training

Habit Reversal Training is a process of teaching an individual to identify triggers for pulling or picking and then utilizing a response that is in direct contradiction to the picking or pulling behavior. 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

DBT focuses on helping individuals learn how to regulate their emotions. We primarily focus on the mindfulness aspect of this theapy. 

Acceptance and Committment Therapy​

​Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.
