Our staff is comprised of numerous professionals with a wide range of skills and specialties that work together as a multi professional team, covering the different dimensions of the person physical and psychological.
The psychology approach used is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that uses a combination of both cognitive and behavioral techniques. The effectiveness of CBT for various psychological problems has been researched more extensively than any others psychotherapeutic approaches. There is extensive evidence demonstrating CBT effectiveness.
The therapist works with the patient to set goals for dealing with problems in their patients life. Although making changes can seem difficult, learning to challenge long held belief systems has proven extremely effective with long-term positive results.
Therapy generally consists of 30-50 minute sessions that are scheduled either weekly or bi-weekly.
As opposed to other therapies, CBT is known to generate results that are both durable and quick. On average, effective CBT therapy can be expected to take just six months to a year, while other more traditional forms of therapy can take years and are frequently open-ended.
The harder working patient will see results more quickly, especially if what is learned during the sessions is practiced outside of the office. The therapist and client will ultimately decide together an appropriate time to conclude treatment. Patients are often surprised to hear their therapists hinting at termination issues, something not typically expected from a therapist.
