Recommended Therapy/ Treatment
Talk therapy can benefit just about everyone. Life is complicated and sometimes you just need someone to help navigate the challanges that life throws at you.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Clients also learn effective strategies to manage stress and to cope with upsetting situations.
Behavior therapy seeks to change self-destructive behaviors. It functions on the idea that all behaviors are learned and can be changed.
Executive Function Coaching
Executive function coaching is normally very beneficial to those who have problems with organizing, planning, prioritizing, staying focused, or achieving goals at school or work. This type of coaching should help with managing all of this and more!
Social Skills Training
Social skills training focuses on verbal and non-verbal behaviors in social relationships. This can be maintaining eye contact while speaking or giving others their personal space. It can help with being less aggressive, impulsive, and managing anger. Many individuals have said that this training helps them feel less socially awkward.
Medication can have differing effects on each individual. It may take some time to find the right medication that shows the preferred result.. It is important to follow the guidance of a physician before starting or stopping a prescribed medication.
Medication management will help oversee one’s prescribed medications to assure that they are taken at the scheduled time and day. This is especially helpful if there are multiple types of medications and/or multiple times needed to take them throughout the day.
Mindfulness training is the process of becoming fully aware and engaged in the present moment. It is a type of meditation that has shown to help reduce anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, pain, and even high blood pressure.
Relational Frame Theory (RFT)
Relational Frame theory (RFT) is a theory about the link between human language and behavior. The principles of RFT offer explanations for the obsessional component of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). For example – through language, illness is related to germs, germs are related to public bathrooms, and the person therefore avoids the use of public bathrooms as he or she would avoid illness. In reality, the person has very likely never become sick from using a public bathroom. Understanding this process of thinking can benefit someone who has OCD.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of therapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. Being human means experiencing a wide array of emotions. It is important to learn that emotions, to an extent, are completely healthy and normal. Learning to accept an emotion with a kind and open perspective is essential to having a happy and healthy life.
Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)
Exposure and Response Prevention is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy intervention. The Exposure in ERP refers to exposing oneself to the thoughts, images, objects and situations that make you anxious and/or start your obsessions. The Response Prevention part of ERP refers to making a choice not to do a compulsive behavior once the anxiety or obsessions have been “triggered.
Psychotherapy AKA talk therapy generally helps people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Therapists are trained for years on how to help their clients so it is very different than just venting to a friend or relative. They can provide unbiased opinions based on patterns that they recognize to meet their clients needs.
Solution Focused Therapy
Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) is a positive therapeutic method that focuses on future solutions rather than current problems. This type of therapy can be especially beneficial to clients that feel like they have no purpose in life. It can help them develop goals and come up with satisfying solutions.
Meal planning is essential so that a client can know how much food to eat and when he or she should eat. There are several ways to ensure that the right foods and the right amounts are consumed every day.
Intuitive eating can help a client become an expert on his/her body and it’s hunger signals. It is the opposite of a traditional diet. It does not advise on what a person should and should not eat. It also helps people stay in tune with how they feel after eating, not just before.
Mindfulness is a type of meditation where a person focuses on what he or she is sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgement.
Dietetics is the science of how food and nutrition affects human health. It is important to make proper dietary choices in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), including both individual and group therapy, teaches mindfulness and acceptance skills such as “the ability to experience moment-to-moment thoughts, emotions and their accompanying physical sensations from an observer’s stance, without negative judgment.” – DSM-5 Manual of Mental Health
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
When a bad memory is avoided, it can often continually cause anxiety, depression, guilt, anger, and other post-traumatic reactions. EMDR focuses on treating these reactions by not avoiding the memory, but embracing it. Often, a trained therapist will guide a client into focusing on these memories while rapidly moving his or her eyes back and forth (by following the therapist’s fingers). There are studies that show this action can help to speed up the healing process.
Rehabilitation is the process for treating a dependency on drugs and/or alcohol. It aims to stop the misuse of substances and confront the reason for dependence (such as a traumatic past event). It helps people accomplish long term recovery and sobriety.
Intensive Outpatient programs allow clients to live at home while being treated for a dependency on drugs and/or alcohol. This type of program is very helpful for individuals who have work or family commitments that they cannot leave for an extended period of time.
Substance Use Evaluation
This is a clinical tool that can help determine whether there are any co-occurring concerns (such as other mental health or physical health issues). It can also assess the magnitude of a person’s drug or alcohol addiction.
Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT)
Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT) was developed specifically to treat bipolar disorder. The goal in mind is to reduce the frequency of manic and depressive episodes and lengthen the time between such episodes. Studies have shown that changing the individual’s routine, or lack of routines, can have a significant impact.
Psychoeducation’s approach is to provide a better understanding of a mental health disorder to not only the diagnosed individual, but preferably their family as well. Ideally, psychoeducation can provide positive coping skills, cognitive patterns, and many other great resources that will help further an individual’s knowledge regarding mental health.
Bipolar disorder can result in destructive behaviors that affect the entire family, which is why it can be very beneficial for family members to have therapeutic sessions together. The family can work on establishing healthier relationships, better communication, and a more efficient emotional support system for each other. It can also help with learning how to recognize warning signs of mood swings.
A psychiatric evaluation is a diagnostic tool provided by a psychiatrist that can help identify mental health conditions.
