Our Treatment Approach

The foundation of our treatment approach is based on creating a client-therapist relationship that will help you reach your goals. We believe this is achieved by providing a warm, engaging therapeutic environment, where you can feel safe to explore and be curious, to gain new insights and perspectives, and to build and practice new skills. We value collaboration and respect your contribution to the therapy process. After all, in the end, you know yourself best, and we are here to help you get connected to your strengths to manage your challenges and live a fuller life.

 

We have an integrative treatment approach that allows us to be flexible with our strategies and tailor our sessions to meet your needs.

 

Our treatment strategies include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy

  • Sensory-based strategies

  • Mind-Body connection

  • Mindfulness techniques

"Trauma creates change you don't choose. Healing creates change you do choose."

— Michelle Rosenthal

We have an extensive background in treating different types of trauma:

  • Acute – a single event, like an accident, assault or natural disaster.

  • Chronic – where an event happened over and over again, such as physical abuse, domestic abuse; or where multiple traumatic events occurred, such as getting ill, then having an accident.

  • Complex/interpersonal – a lot like chronic trauma, but started in childhood, involves the actions (or inactions) of caregivers, and does not have a concrete end point.

 

Our trauma-informed strategies are rooted in the following treatment models:

  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT)

  • Attachment-Regulation-Competency (ARC)

  • Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS)

  • Sensory-based interventions
