How is therapy different from talking with a friend?
Therapy is very different from talking with a friend. Therapists offer non judgment support as you process various issues.
What therapy is:
- Receiving emotional and cognitive skills to help manage your life.
- Building trust with a professional (Therapeutic Alliance)
What therapy is not:
Experiential therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on action. Clients are guided by the therapist to express their emotions and create solutions through reenactment and hands on activities.
Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a form of therapy that connects the brain and body in treatment. The goal of SE is to modify the trauma-related stress response through bottom-up processing. When engaging in Somatic therapy, focus is placed on the therapist and client attunement, body sensations, focused mindfulness, and at time eye position to release stress, tension, and trauma from the body.
We offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Brainspotting Therapy.
People seek therapy because they are unable to regulate their behaviors, emotions, and/or thoughts. They may also want to work through past experiences that have caused them pain. Therapy is a process that can help restore your mental state by Acknowledging the cause, Commiting to change, and Training the skills to lessen the undesired feelings and responses.
When you begin therapy, you will create goals with your therapist. The goals are what you want to gain from therapy. As you meet with your therapist, together you will determine when the goals have been met. You will also know that therapy is working based on the way your body feels, the way you think, and your responses to situations that were once difficult.
Intensive sessions are longer sessions offered to clients participating in brainspotting therapy. The time frame is extend to allow the client to process more information and notice their body's sensations to heal from past traumas.
