(as seen on A&E's "Obessed," VH1's "The OCD Project," NBC's "The Today Show," and multiple other media outlets)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an empirically supported treatment that focuses on modifying problematic thoughts & behaviors that contribute to & maintain emotional problems like anxiety, stress, & depression. Like traditional forms of therapy, CBT emphasizes a warm, safe, & empathic therapeutic environment. CBT is different from some approaches in that it focuses on present-day problems & learning skills to overcome symptoms. Instead of focusing on childhood issues, you will learn to identify thoughts & behaviors that are keeping you stuck, so you may develop more adaptive ways for navigating your life.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and commitment therapy is an empirically supported treatment that focuses on reducing experiential avoidance and accepting internal experiences (thoughts and feelings) in the service of living a valued, vital, meaningful existence. Mindfulness, metaphors, and experiential exercises play a central role in ACT.
Biofeedback is an empirically supported treatment that focuses on balancing the nervous system. Biofeedback is shown to be extremely effective at helping patients reduce anxiety and stress, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain (including migraines), increase focus and attention, and reduce hyper-vigilance commonly experienced after trauma.
