About

We believe in helping our patients to focus on discovering their own solutions through empowerment and education. This type of therapy gives the patient the power to build upon their strengths by focusing on solutions rather than problems. We use a variety of techniques in therapy to find what will work best for the patient. These techniques are likely to include dialogue, interpretation, cognitive processes, EMDR, re-framing, psychoeducation, behavior modification, self-monitoring, journaling, awareness exercises, visualization, and other thought stopping and mindfulness techniques.
