EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. (https://www.emdr.com)
CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is a form of treatment that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By exploring patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions and the beliefs that direct these thoughts, people with mental illness can modify their patterns of thinking to improve coping.

DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) is a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral treatment that was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder. DBT has been found especially effective for those with suicidal and other multiply occurring severely dysfunctional behaviors. (http://behavioraltech.org)
Solution Focused/Brief Therapy is about being brief and focusing on solutions, rather than on problems. By bringing small successes into people's awareness and repeating the successful things they do when the problem is less severe, people improve their lives and become more confident about themselves.

Neurofeedback (NFB, also known as neurobiofeedback or EEG Biofeedback) is a type of biofeedback that uses sensors placed on the scalp to measure brain waves. NFB uses real-time displays of EEG to exhibit brain activity and teach self-regulation. A signal is produced that can be used as immediate feedback on brain activity to teach self-regulation. As the desired brain wave is achieved, the brain learns to direct itself toward a more desirable performance level. Each individual is set up to target specific frequencies dependent on their wants and needs. Neurofeedback is completely holistic, non-invasive and painless.
We use the software BrainPaint™, which offers a personalized treatment protocol. The program provides audio and visual feedback that involves increasing or decreasing certain brain wave frequencies allowing the brain to function with greater stability and control while enhancing its function through regulation of thoughts, feelings, and overall focus. With consistent sessions, clients typically notice results between 5-8 sessions. Couple NFB with traditional psychotherapy to further decrease symptoms of stress-related brain diseases and neurobehavioral disorders by altering brainwave patterns.
