Types of Psychotherapy Available
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others.
Biofeedback is a technique that is used to help client’s regulate their emotions. Biofeedback is linked with mindfulness, however, it goes a step further in the clinical setting to teach client’s strategies to build coherence between their heart and mind. During biofeedback sessions, client’s are able to physically see their heart gain more coherence with their mind, body and spirit. During these sessions, client’s are monitored through technology as skills are taught. This technology is a powerful way to understand what works to help regulate emotions, lower stress and anxiety.
Existential Therapy focuses on free will, self-determination, and the search for meaning—often centering on you rather than on the symptom. The approach emphasizes your capacity to make rational choices and to develop to your maximum potential.
Person-Centered Therapy (Rogerian Therapy) was developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940’s. It was diverged from the traditional model of the therapist as expert and moved instead toward a nondirective, empathic approach that empowers and motivates the client in the therapeutic process. The therapy is based on Rogers’s belief that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential. Person-centered therapy, also known as Rogerian therapy, has had a tremendous impact on the field of psychotherapy and many other disciplines.
Reality therapy is a client-centered form of cognitive behavioral therapy that focuses on improving present relationships and circumstances, while avoiding discussion of past events. This approach is based on the idea that our most important need is to be loved, to feel that we belong, and that all other basic needs can be satisfied only by building strong connections with others. Reality therapy teaches that while we cannot control how we feel, we can control how we think and behave. The goal of reality therapy is to help people take control of improving their own lives by learning to make better choices.
Solution Focused Brief (SFBT)
Unlike traditional forms of therapy that take time to analyze problems, pathology and past life events, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) concentrates on finding solutions in the present time and exploring one’s hope for the future to find quicker resolution of one’s problems. This method takes the approach that you know what you need to do to improve your own life and, with the appropriate coaching and questioning, are capable of finding the best solutions.
Care Coordination is a way to help and navigate families through mental health resources within the education systems in North Carolina. The available resources and supports that the state has to offer are hard to obtain if you don’t know the proper channels of connection. We can help by attending IEP meetings with families at schools, work with Trillium Health Services to place patients on the Innovations Waiver and have referred several children and teenagers to enhanced services with other providers- services families are not familiar with.
Care Coordination can be an essential part of maintaining a good quality of life, however, if you don’t know about the resources or how to navigate the system, it can be frustrating. This service is not covered by any insurance, but the price and the limited time it will take for coordination of care is well worth the price.
