Initially designed for "big T" traumas, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) has been extensively researched and found effective in treating "little t" traumas, as well as other issues like anxiety and depression.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is based on Attachment Theory, which focuses on building and repairing secure attachments to significant others. EFT is a highly effective treatment for couples and families, and has also been adapted to work well for individuals. Safety and security are at the heart of this therapy approach.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a popular therapy modality that was first developed for treating eating disorders, but has since been found to be helpful for a wide range of issues. IFS focuses on empowering the "self" to lead and manage different parts of a person. This approach is commonly used with individuals.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most extensively researched therapy models, and subsequent iterations have led to a more holistic and mindful approach. While CBT is often used for individual therapy, systemic thinkers have developed methods for using it effectively with couples and families.
ACT & DBT
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are part of the "third wave" of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which takes a more holistic approach to a person's well-being. ACT is typically used for individuals who have difficulty staying present and accepting themselves as they are, while DBT is effective in treating interpersonal conflict, depression, and suicidality.
Narrative Therapy has had such a significant impact that it has influenced many other therapy approaches. In its purest form, Narrative Therapy looks quite distinct from other therapy modalities, as it places a strong emphasis on valuing the unique culture of each person. The approach involves deconstructing problem-saturated stories and rewriting them in a more positive and empowering way.
During outdoor therapy, the therapist can work with what is called "present process," which can lead to unique therapeutic opportunities. Research has shown that there are many mental health benefits to being in nature and exercising, and by combining therapy with these activities, we can maximize these benefits. Outdoor therapy is not only effective but also enjoyable, making it a fun and refreshing alternative to traditional therapy settings.
We have a team of therapists who specialize in outdoor therapy and are available to join you on a local trail or at a park for a wellness walk. We are thrilled to offer this approach to mental health as its benefits are becoming more widely recognized. Outdoor therapy has become popular in active and healthy communities around the world, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this movement.
