Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a trauma-informed, evidence-based, brief therapy used to help process traumatic experiences (both acute and complex) and relieve, reduce, or bring into remission trauma/PTSD symptoms. It does this by focusing on negative cognitions, known as stuck points (e.g. "I’m a bad person", "I was responsible", "I'm dirty", "I can't trust anyone", "I'm not safe", "I don't matter", "I don't deserve…" to name a few) and challenging them when they were developed to determine if the cognition is evidence-based and deserves to be believed.


CPT is a 12-session therapy that follows a protocol designed to help process trauma, learn the skills needed to address negative cognitions and trauma on your own once the therapy concludes, and the ways trauma affect major themes like safety, trust, power and control, self-esteem, and intimacy.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialized psychotherapy approach designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. EMDR is grounded in the understanding that traumatic events can overwhelm the brain's natural ability to process experiences, leading to lingering psychological and emotional issues.

EMDR is unique because it does not require clients to discuss the details of their traumatic experiences extensively. Instead, it focuses on the brain's capacity to heal itself using its natural processing abilities. Many clients experience significant relief from distressing symptoms in a shorter time compared to traditional therapy methods. It is a client-centered, non-invasive approach that can bring profound and lasting healing. If you are struggling with the impacts of trauma or other emotional distress, EMDR might be the path to the relief and recovery you seek.

EMDR has been extensively researched and proven effective for treating a range of conditions, including:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Panic Disorders

  • Phobias

  • Chronic Pain

  • Grief and Loss

Existential Therapy

Existential Therapy is a talk-therapy that addresses mental health concerns and experiences by focusing on four primary themes of existence that often cause suffering and pain: loneliness, responsibility/choice, meaning, and death. By utilizing therapeutic discussion, Socratic Dialogue, and immediacy, addressing these themes can lead to a reduction in symptoms and a sense of relief and understanding in life and self.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Helps people identify and change thinking patterns that generate or influence unwanted and/or distressing outcomes or feelings. If you replace inaccurate thoughts with more accurate and adaptive ones a more productive, neutral and/or satisfying result can occur. CBT often involves practicing new skills in the “real world”. It is about changing the way you think and interpret

Brainspotting (BSP) is an advanced brain-body therapy that focuses on identifying, processing, and releasing trauma, mental health imbalances and residual emotional stress. Developed by Dr. David Grand in 2003, Brainspotting leverages the brain's natural ability to heal itself by accessing and releasing stored memories and emotions.

Brainspotting is based on the concept that where you look affects how you feel. Brainspotting looks for a connection to a single spot in the room that brings up the most emotion for you. It is an access point that, while looking in this particular area, accesses the part of your brain that has stored the memories that are tied to the situation, event, or symptoms you are struggling with (anxiety, depression, panic, etc.) in order to fully reprocess those issues.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique, evidence-based form of psychotherapy that helps individuals embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them. Developed Dr. Steven C. Hayes, ACT combines principles of mindfulness and behavioral change to promote psychological flexibility and a richer, more meaningful life.

ACT is grounded in the philosophy that attempting to avoid or control negative thoughts and emotions can often lead to greater distress. Instead, ACT encourages acceptance of these experiences while committing to actions that align with personal values. The therapy involves six core processes:

  1. Acceptance: Learning to accept and embrace thoughts and feelings without trying to change or avoid them.

  2. Cognitive Defusion: Changing the way one interacts with thoughts, reducing their power and impact.

  3. Being Present: Cultivating mindfulness to remain focused on the present moment.

  4. Self as Context: Developing a flexible sense of self that transcends specific thoughts and feelings.

  5. Values Clarification: Identifying and understanding what truly matters to the individual.

  6. Committed Action: Taking effective action guided by personal values, even in the presence of difficult thoughts and feelings
