Behavioral Approach
Psychodynamic Oriented Intervention

Behavioral Approach: Our team of behavioral specialists work closely with all clients that meet criteria for behavioral therapy which include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy.  Our behavioral teem takes an Intensive Outpatient Approach (IOP) providing intensive behavioral support 1-3 times per week.

  • CBT is an intervention that is effectively used to treat individuals with anxiety and OCD disorders; it provides the basis for Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. CBT is built on the premise that behaviors, thoughts, and emotions are all intertwined, and by using skills to learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns, we can reduce problematic behaviors and improve our emotional state.
  • Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is the gold-standard intervention for OCD. ERP focuses on increasing an individual's tolerance of anxiety, uncertainty, and discomfort. This is done by decreasing the use of rituals, compulsions, and unhealthy coping skills in response to anxiety-provoking scenarios. Together we introduce these anxious scenarios through a hierarchical manner, based on the individual's subjective experience. This allows a person to gradually build up their confidence to tolerate uncomfortable situations and eventually replace them with values-based activities and healthy coping skills which ensure long-term sustainable progress.

Overall

We are eager to work with individuals towards lifelong fulfillment through the understanding of emotions and behaviors, and to build an environment that is rich in self-discovery.
