Limited Reparenting is where John assumes a role as a co-parent aligning himself with the patient’s healthy adult mode.

Gestalt Therapy focuses more on what is happening than what is being discussed in order to better understand the origination of the issue. The focus of this method is to separate preexisting attitudes and interpretation from perceiving, feeling, and acting.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) changes the patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties in order to change the way they feel. This method is used to help treat a wide range of issues including difficulty sleeping, relationship problems, drug and alcohol abuse, or anxiety and depression.

Family & Marital Therapy is considered to be as effective and, in some cases, more effective than standard or individual treatments for many mental health problems. A family’s patterns of behavior influences the individual and, even if only a single person is interviewed, it is this set of relationships in which the person is embedded.

Family Systems Therapy evaluates the family as an emotional unit and suggests an individual’s behavior is often informed by and inseparable from the functioning of one’s family of origin. This type of therapy may be useful to individuals and families struggling with conflict within the family unit

Interpersonal Therapy is based on the principle that there is a symbiotic relationship between the way people communicate and interact with others and their mental health. Interpersonal Therapy combined paired with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy allows a more complete evaluation and treatment of an individual’s mental health or behavioral issues.

Schema Therapy is an integrative psychotherapy treatment for personality disorders and chronic DSM Axis I disorders. This type of therapy is ideal for individuals who fail to respond to or relapse after completing more commonly used treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Schema therapy has recently been blended with mindfulness meditation and yoga for clients who want to add a spiritual dimension to their lives.
