Types of t​reatment

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Who is DBT for?

DBT is particularly effective for those who are struggling with accepting things they need to or who are strugging finding ways to make change without causing further problems.

People who's emotions take over, who do poorly in dealing with themselves and others in relationships, who have a low tolerance for discomfort or difficulties, or who have a difficult time staying in the present; would benefit from DBT. 

Moral Reconation Therapy™ (MRT)

Who is MRT for?

MRT is beneficial for those who have a pattern or trend of making the same decisions and mistakes, repeatedly. For people who don't seem able to learn from the mistakes or who don't know how to do it differently. 

Spiritual Self

Schema Therapy (3S)

Who is 3S for?

3S is helpful for those who are struggling with negative or damaging perceptions of self or life in general; those seeking more acceptance and peace in their lives; or those who find that while life is good, they seem to find something lacking.

Forms of treatment

Forms (modalities) of counseling include:
  • Individual counseling
    • Individual counseling is generally one on one, though collateral participation of a spouse, parent or friend may be included if deemed beneficial to the client's treatment.  
  • Group counseling
    • Group counseling is a very effective way to teach and learn adaptive skills and principles.  For a group to be beneficial, there should be a minimal number of group members. As such, groups available will be contingent upon having enough clients for a specific group at a given time.  Groups are structured and topic and skill focused. Personal issues and information are NOT discussed in the groups. They are addressed in individual sessions. 
  • Phone coaching
    • Phone coaching is a service provided for DBT clients to aid them in moments of severe crisis. The service is over the phone, the client will be directed to the immediate use of skills to deal with the crisis, and the call will generally not exceed five to seven minutes in length.  

What are evidence based practices? 

The conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the [client]. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.
