Therapy provides a safe space where thoughts, fears, and other feelings of distress can be voiced and explored without judgment. We are all presented with challenges, stressors, and anxieties on a daily basis. Many of us have formed behaviorally, emotionally, and physically conditioned responses due to past experiences or environments. These habitual responses and reactions may no longer serve us, and could be better adapted to our present lives and circumstances.
Traditional talk therapy techniques will be tailored to the individual client’s needs and goals. Such techniques may include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): exploring how thoughts effect emotions and behavior; psychodynamic theories: looking deeper into repressed feelings or emotions; mindfulness techniques: focusing on the present moment experience; and trauma-informed treatment approaches: helping those affected by trauma regain a sense of safety and control over their lives.
A combination of various techniques will be offered to help clients reach new levels of insight and integration, in efforts to ease distress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships. Sessions can also include elements of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY), yoga, or body-based treatments based on client’s interest.
