COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT) - CBT was developed and studied by Aaron T. Beck, M.D. in the 1970's. It is an evidence based intervention that focuses on how thoughts and perceptions influence emotions and behaviors.
DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (DBT) - INFORMED - DBT is an evidence based intervention developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD. A true DBT program is comprised of 4 components, including individual therapy, skills groups, phone coaching and consultation groups for DBT therapists. At this practice, DBT informed interventions are offered and woven into therapy. DBT skills, such as, mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation are taught in session and skills practice is recommeneded outside of session.
INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS (IFS) - IFS was developed by Richard Schwartz, a family therapist. Through his work as a therapist, he found that, much like a family system, the mind or psyche is comprised of different "parts" that work together. IFS is an evidence-based intervention that promotes psychological healing by enabling the various parts to work together in more healthy and effective ways.
MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION (MBSR) - MBSR is an 8 week mindfulness training program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1970's. Over the many years of his research he discovered that consistent mindfulness practice reduces physical and psychological distress, i.e. decreases anxiety and depression, among other conditions.
EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION AND REPROCESSING (EMDR) THERAPY - EMDR was developed in 1987 by Francine Shapiro. This evidence-based approach uses bilateral sensory stimulation to help complete the processing of disturbing material from the past that intrude on present day functioning.
