Individual

Psychotherapy

As clinicians, we help our clients to harness the ways thoughts, emotions, and behaviors can maximize the positive impact of the brain-body connection to reduce distress. This includes teaching Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills, as well as other relaxation, mindfulness, action/goal-focused, acceptance, and brain-body connection strategies, all with the goal of improving functioning in order to live as best you can.

 

Our treatment approach empowers young people to develop skills to regulate emotions, cope with stress, develop healthy lifestyle patterns, discern meaningful life activities, and prioritize positive social relationships.
