Our Methods


Emdr (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.


DBT (dialectical behavior therapy)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment modality effective in reducing the symptoms of a wide variety of issues, including Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, substance use disorders, eating disorders, and self-injurious or suicidal behaviors. DBT combines cognitive, mindfulness, and skills based strategies to decrease intense, unpredictable emotions and self-destructive behaviors, and increase quality of life.


Radically open DBT

Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is an evidence-based treatment modality that targets individuals with very high levels of self-control who struggle with issues such as social isolation, poor interpersonal functioning, perfectionism, rigidity, lack of emotional expression, obsessive compulsive disorder, restrictive eating disorder, and treatment resistant anxiety and depression. RO DBT teaches skills aimed to decrease overcontrol and enhance flexibility, openness, and social connectedness
