Our Approach

A person walks a labyrinth in the sand, symbolizing the many approaches to therapy.

Many of us are longing and needing to heal.

Therapy, or therapeutic practices, can be traced back to ancient civilizations, meaning that humans have long recognized the need for psychological support and healing. Approaches to mental health therapy blend scientific knowledge, evidence-based practices, and the personal and subjective nature of human experiences and emotions.

As therapists, we use our education, knowledge, training, clinical skills, and empathic understanding to create a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your concerns, gain insight, and develop new perspectives.

Benefits, Techniques, & Goals of Therapy Approaches

Increased Self-awareness

Many therapy approaches encourage self-exploration and introspection, helping individuals gain a deeper understanding of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. This increased self-awareness can lead to personal growth, greater self-esteem, and a stronger sense of self or personal identity.

Improved Coping Skills

Therapy approaches often provide people with practical tools and strategies to manage stress, regulate emotions, and cope with challenging situations. These skills can, in turn, enhance resilience and empower you to navigate life’s difficulties with more confidence and less struggle.

Changed Behaviors

Approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focus on identifying and modifying negative thought patterns and behaviors. By challenging and changing unhelpful beliefs and behaviors, you can experience significant improvements in your mental health and overall functioning.

Personal Growth & Empowerment

Many of our approaches prioritize personal growth and empowerment. Through therapy, you can clarify your values, set meaningful goals, and work towards self-actualization. Therapy can provide a supportive environment for you to explore your potential and make positive changes in your life.

Emotional Healing

Many therapy approaches, such as trauma-focused therapies like EMDR, aim to address and heal emotional wounds from the past. By processing these experiences, individuals can find relief from emotional pain, reduce symptoms, and experience a sense of emotional well-being.

Communication & Relationships

Family therapy and couples therapy approaches focus on improving communication patterns and resolving conflicts within relationships. These therapies can strengthen relationships, promote healthier dynamics, and foster greater intimacy and connection.

Self-acceptance & Self-compassion

Humanistic and mindfulness-based therapies emphasize self-acceptance, self-compassion, and non-judgment. These approaches can help individuals develop a more positive self-image, cultivate self-acceptance, and practice self-care.

Symptom Management

Finally, many therapy approaches often target specific symptoms associated with mental health disorders. By addressing the underlying causes and developing effective coping strategies, therapy can help people to alleviate symptoms, manage their conditions, and learn to grow, heal, and thrive.
