Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) emphasizes psychological flexibility and promotes a more open and accepting relationship with one’s thoughts and feelings. This therapeutic approach integrates mindfulness practices with behavior change strategies. During sessions, individuals are guided to embrace their thoughts and feelings without judgment, while also committing to actions that align with their values and desired outcomes.
ACT is well-suited for individuals grappling with emotional distress, anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and more. Through this approach, clients gain a better understanding of their internal experiences, leading to more purposeful actions, increased resilience, and an enhanced quality of life.
The Gottman Method is a relationship-focused therapy grounded in extensive research on marital stability and couple dynamics.

This method is particularly effective for couples experiencing frequent conflicts, emotional distance, decreased affection, or considering separation. With the Gottman Method, couples can gain better insights into their relationship patterns, build trust, enhance understanding, and foster a more supportive and fulfilling partnership.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy is based on the idea that the mind is made up of multiple sub-personalities or “parts”. Each of these parts has its own viewpoints, emotions, and characteristics.
In IFS Therapy, the therapist will help the client identify and understand each of the parts that make them whole. By deepening the relationship with each part, there is an opportunity to gain insight into the patterns and beliefs causing distress.
IFS is used for a variety of concerns, including trauma, depression, anxiety, and interpersonal relationships. It can also be used for personal growth, self-understanding, and self-development.
Start feeling more whole by understanding the “parts” that make you you!
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a goal-oriented therapeutic approach that centers on an individual’s strengths and resources. Rather than delving into past issues, SFBT focuses on identifying and leveraging present solutions to help individuals construct a more desirable future. During a session, the therapist collaborates with the client to clarify goals, explore solutions, and recognize existing strengths and achievements.
SFBT is particularly useful for those looking to address specific challenges in a short period. Its optimistic and forward-looking nature can benefit individuals facing life transitions, relationship issues, stress, anxiety, and more. Through this process, clients often find renewed motivation, clearer perspectives, and practical strategies to enact positive change.
Somatic Therapy is a holistic therapeutic approach that focuses on the mind-body connection. It involves both psychotherapy and physical therapy. This may include breathing techniques, dancing, or other types of movement.
It is commonly used for trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief, and when individuals feel disconnected from their bodies. Somatic Therapy can lead to a reduction in tension and physical discomfort, an increased connection to the body, an improved ability to handle stress, and an overall more balanced emotional state.
