Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a type of goal-oriented talk therapy that assumes that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interrelated. It focuses on helping individuals challenge their inaccurate and/or negative thinking patterns in order to view situations more accurately which lead to less distress.

In addition to learning new ways to navigate how we think, CBT also incorporates concrete skill building to help individuals cope more effectively.

Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy specifically aimed at helping individuals regulate their emotions, communicate with others more effectively and decrease conflict in relationships.

It involves learning and actively using skills. There are four domains of skills that are taught: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation.

Insight-Oriented Therapy

A client-centered type of talk therapy that guides clients toward developing an improved understanding of themselves and how they interact with others.

Through specific questions, intimate conversations, and guided prompts, past patterns are discovered and processed in order to bring clarity issues that are currently affecting one’s daily life. With a new understanding of one’s struggles, it empowers individuals to make realistic changes.

Motivational Interviewing

A direct, client-centered approach that helps explore and resolve ambivalence in order to achieve changes in an individual’s life.

It assists clients in taking the first step towards change and growth as it allows them to evaluate the costs and benefits of potentially destructive behaviors impacting their happiness and success.

Intuitive Eating Model

A non-diet approach that connects individuals back to their hunger and fullness cues in order to heal their relationship with food. The model explains that people are all born naturally as intuitive eaters (i.e. babies cry when hungry and pull away when full); however, certain messages over time often lead us astray.

By learning certain principles such as how to appropriately respond to hunger and fullness cues, cope with emotional eating and be more mindful, the process will guide you back to being an intuitive eater.
