EVIDENCE BASED TREATMENT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an empirically supported treatment that focuses on modifying problematic thoughts and behaviors that contribute to and maintain emotional problems like anxiety, stress, and depression. Like traditional forms of therapy, CBT emphasizes a warm, safe, & empathic therapeutic environment. CBT is different from some approaches in that it focuses on present-day problems and learning skills to overcome symptoms.

  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) is a form of CBT designed to help survivors of trauma overcome the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
     

  • Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is a specific form of CBT for overcoming the symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other anxiety related problems.
     

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a specific treatment developed to treat symptoms of insomnia.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and commitment therapy is an empirically supported treatment that focuses on reducing experiential avoidance and accepting internal experiences (thoughts and feelings) in the service of living a valued, vital, meaningful existence.
