Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

This is an evidenced-based practice that is goal-oriented, and problem focused. It involves the process of  restructuring negative thought patterns and practicing new behaviors will improve mood and therefore quality of life.

Positive Psychotherapy (PPT)

This is an evidenced-based practice that stipulates that by increasing the happiness level of individuals, symptoms of depression will naturally decrease.    

Play Therapy with Children

Different forms of play therapy are used with children as they have not yet developed the capacity for abstract reasoning.  Play therapy keeps kids interested in therapy and provides a relaxed atmosphere for them to talk about their problems.  For children, play is their conversation.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

This is an evidenced-based practice for suicidal attempts, self-harm, eating disorders and depression among adolescents, adults and seniors.   It helps clients create a life worth living.

Family Therapy

When a problem occurs within a family, often, all members are effected.  Family therapy therefore explores the roles, communication styles and interactions between each family member.  It focuses on strengthening the relationships among family members rather than focusing one individual at a time.
