Behavioral health therapies we offer
Whichever program is right for you, your treatment will be designed to address your individual needs and may include:
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to help you reduce avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes and what to do when you can't stick to your goals.
Art therapy uses the creative process to help you gain personal insight, improve judgment, cope with stress and work through traumatic experiences.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
CBT helps you identify, test the reality of and correct dysfunctional beliefs to modify your thoughts and behaviors.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
DBT is most commonly known for relieving the intense emotional pain associated with borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it has other uses as well. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help you regulate emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is an information-processing therapy that helps you cope with trauma, addictions and phobias.
Emotionally focused therapy (EFT)
EFT helps you identify, explore, experience, understand and manage your emotions. EFT is also offered for couples, to help break the negative emotion cycles within relationships.
Experiential therapy uses expressive tools and activities—such as role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts—to help you re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from past and recent relationships.
Expressive arts therapy
Expressive arts therapy uses creative arts—art, dance, drama, music and writing—on the basis that you can heal through use of imagination and creativity.
Gestalt therapy integrates your behaviors, feelings and thinking to help align your intentions and actions. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis and role-playing.
Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)
IPT is a short-term psychotherapy in which you and your therapist identify the issues of your interpersonal relationships. They also explore your life history to help you recognize problem areas and work toward solutions.
Motivational interviewing (MI)
MI engages your motivation to change your behavior. It is frequently used to treat problem-drinking or mild addictions.
Narrative therapy uses storytelling to indicate the way you construct meaning in your life, rather than focusing on how you communicate your problem behaviors. This elevates you as the authority of your narrative.
Person-centered therapy (talk therapy)
Person-centered therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows you to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, you will discover your own solutions.
Psychoanalysis is an in-depth form of therapy in which you learn what conscious and unconscious wishes drive your patterns of thinking and behavior. It helps you make more educated choices about how you think and act.
Reality therapy is a form of CBT focused on improving present relationships and circumstances. It teaches you that while you cannot control how you feel, you can control how you think and behave.
Relational therapy offers strategies to help couples combat marital dysfunction and restore harmony in relationships. It helps each partner see how they contribute to the problem and learn how to improve it.
Solution focused brief therapy (SFBT)
SFBT, sometimes called "brief therapy," helps you envision a desirable future and then map out the small and large changes necessary to realize your vision.
Strength-based therapy helps you build on your best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and develop a more positive worldview.
Structural family therapy
Structural family therapy focuses on your relationships with others and how those relationships drive and impact your actions and behaviors.
Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT)
TF-CBT helps people who may be experiencing post-traumatic stress after a traumatic event to return to a healthy state.
Help for behavioral health crises
It can be hard to see when someone is having a mental health crisis, but it's just as serious as if they were having a physical medical emergency. If you or someone you know is experiencing the symptoms below, contact your local mental health provider or seek a crisis assessment at our 24/7 emergency rooms (ERs).
- Disruptions in daily activities, such as inability to socialize, work or perform daily chores
- Eating or sleeping excessively or very little
- Hallucinations or paranoid delusions
- Inability to adjust or recover from loss or life’s changes such as loss of relationship or job
- Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
