Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior. CBT is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. If you or someone you know would benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy, please reach out today. We would be happy to speak with you about how a Mindfully Healing therapist may be able to help.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a structured short-term method (8 to 20 times), originally developed for couples therapy, based on attachment science, developed in the 1980s. The EFT intervention integrates an experiential method focused on being human to reconstruct emotional experience and a systematic structural method to reconstruct interaction. There have been a large number of studies on the efficacy of EFT. This study shows that over time, the effect of treatment is great and the results are stable. EFT has been used successfully by many different types of couples in private clinics, college training centers, and hospital clinics. The preliminary study is for couples suffering from depression, trauma-induced anxiety, medical illness, and difficulty forgiving. EFT is used for different cultural groups and educational levels in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa, and Asia. It is used for both traditional and non-traditional couples, including same-sex couples.
The Gottman Method is a research-based approach to couples therapy developed by renowned psychologists Drs. John and Julie Gottman. It is designed to help couples build stronger, healthier relationships by improving communication, understanding, and conflict resolution skills. This method is rooted in over four decades of scientific research and has been extensively tested and validated. At its core, the Gottman Method focuses on enhancing relationship satisfaction and promoting long-term relationship success. It provides couples with practical tools and strategies to deepen their emotional connection, foster empathy, and create a secure bond built on trust and mutual support. One of the key elements of the Gottman Method is effective communication. Couples are taught techniques for active listening, expressing their needs and concerns, and responding empathetically to their partner's emotions. By improving communication skills, couples can reduce misunderstandings, increase understanding, and strengthen their overall relationship quality. Conflict resolution is another crucial aspect addressed by the Gottman Method. Couples learn healthy ways to manage and resolve conflicts, with a focus on understanding each other's perspectives and finding mutually beneficial solutions. The method helps couples navigate disagreements constructively, reducing the negative impact of conflict on the relationship. The Gottman Method also emphasizes the importance of emotional intimacy. Couples are encouraged to deepen their emotional connection by expressing fondness and admiration for each other, building friendship and trust, and creating shared meaning in their relationship. By fostering emotional intimacy, couples can cultivate a strong and fulfilling partnership. Overall, the Gottman Method is widely recognized as one of the most effective approaches to couples therapy. Its evidence-based techniques have helped countless couples improve their relationship satisfaction, strengthen their communication skills, and develop strategies for long-term relationship success. Therapists trained in the Gottman Method utilize these principles to guide couples towards healthier and more fulfilling relationships.

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.
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.
