Therapy

We provide a range of evidence-based therapy services to support adults who experience behavioral or emotional difficulties. Common concerns include:

  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Coping with medical illness
  • Sleep problems
  • Family conflict
Specific services

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for adults who experience high levels of anxiety, depression, ADHD or general difficulty in areas of emotion regulation. In CBT, therapists work directly with clients to teach emotion identification and coping skills. Clients will practice each skill in session and in “real life” in between sessions. These practice sessions are also called exposure sessions. CBT has very strong research support in the treatment of multiple forms of anxiety, including Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Phobias, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). CBT is also considered an evidence-based treatment for depression and other mood disorders as well as adult ADHD.

Mindfulness approaches and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for adults who experience anxiety, depression or other behavioral and emotional difficulties associated with avoidance or inflexibility. ACT is an evidence-based form of therapy that guides clients in ways to live a meaningful life consistent with their values by learning mindfulness skills and other techniques to decrease “experiential avoidance” and increase the ability to be present with and accepting of difficult thoughts and feelings. ACT has a strong research base for adults struggling with multiple forms of anxiety, depression and other mood-related concerns.

We are committed to grounding all practices in the best available research in areas of clinical psychology and we tailor all treatment plans to each client. Finally, we believe that the best care is provided when providers are connected and communicate in strategic and thoughtful ways. To do this we work closely with medical professionals and other treatment providers to ensure consistency in therapeutic approaches.
