Person-centered therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a particular type of treatment designed for individuals who experience very intense emotions and the impulsive, and often self-destructive behaviors that often accompany these emotions. Originally developed for individuals living with Borderline Personality Disorder, it has now shown promise as a treatment for a variety of conditions, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We have providers who offer DBT skills incorporated into individual therapy, but we do not have a full DBT program at this time.

Healing occurs by getting to know all these parts and better understand how the overall system reacts in situations or to other people.
Both the ALPHA-STIM® M and ALPHA-STIM® AID treat anxiety, depression and insomnia. The ALPHA-STIM® M also treats acute, chronic, and postoperative pain. The primary distinctive feature in a medical device is the waveform, and ALPHA-STIM® has a uniquely effective waveform. The application of direct electrical treatment to the brain, along with our treatment protocols for pain also makes the difference that no other device has been able to emulate. Further, ALPHA-STIM® technology has been shown to be far more cost effective than prescription drugs
Rather than insisting upon adherence to one particular approach to trauma therapy, eclectic therapy employs and often combines elements from a range of techniques to establish a course of treatment that is flexible and individually tailored to the client.
