Some of our Specialties

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

“I was in counseling for 11 years straight and needed it even longer. I tried everything and nothing worked for any length of time. Then I was hospitalized, I was tired of seeing different therapists and trying yet another medication. I had given up hope that anything would work. I [saw] myself as broken and unfixable. Then I found DBT! DBT literally saved my life.”

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

The client is always in control of the entire ART session, with the therapist guiding the process. Although some traumatic experiences such as rape, combat experiences, or loss of a loved one can be very painful to think about or visualize, the therapy rapidly moves clients beyond the place where they are stuck in these experiences toward growth and positive changes. The process is very straightforward, using relaxing eye movements and a technique called Voluntary Memory/Image Replacement to change the way in which the negative images are stored in the brain. The treatment is grounded in well-established psychotherapy techniques, and the end result is that traumas and difficult life experiences will no longer trigger strong emotions or physical reactions. Importantly, clients do not even have to talk about their traumas or difficult life experiences with the therapist to achieve recovery.

Alcohol Or Cannabis: Which Is Worse For Brain Health?

Study of over 1,000 people’s brains tested whether alcohol or cannabis does the most damage. Long-term alcohol use is more damaging to the brain than long-term cannabis use, new research finds. The assumption among many scientists has been that cannabis use may be just as damaging to long-term health as alcohol. But this new study of over 1,000 people’s brains suggests otherwise. Alcohol use is linked to decreased gray matter size and lower white matter integrity, the researchers found. Cannabis, though, had no link to reductions in these critical measures

The Diet Linked To Higher Depression Risk

The longer people follow this diet, the more depressed they are. Vegetarians are twice as likely to experience depression as those eating a regular balanced diet, a new study finds. The longer people followed a vegetarian diet, the higher their depression scores, the researchers found. It is possible that the link is down to poor nutrition. Vegetarians typically have low levels of vitamin B12 in their diet. Indeed, around 50% of vegans have a vitamin B12 deficiency, while 7% of vegetarians have the deficiency. Vitamin B12 is found in red

This Posture Increases Your Allure, Research Finds

Only a small change in posture is enough to increase attractiveness. A slight arching of a woman’s back — extending her buttocks outward — makes her more alluring, research finds. It might help to explain the mystery of why high-heeled shoes are so popular. They cause women to arch their backs slightly to help them balance. The study found that only relatively small changes in how much a woman’s back was arched made her look more appealing. Mr Farid Pazhoohi, who led the study, said: “Increased curvature increases the perception

How to Deal with Family Drama Around the Holidays

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement and grief aren’t light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.
