At Cardinal Counseling, we utilize a variety of evidence-based therapy practices, as we collaborate with you on a personalized and effective plan for healing.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT)
CBT is one of the most widely used and effective types of therapy in which the clinician helps the client identify and change distorted thoughts, increase emotional stability, and find more helpful ways to cope with stress.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
A contemporary form of CBT, ACT teaches us how to discover and honor our personal values through mindful awareness of our own thoughts and feelings, the flexibility to hold our experiences lightly, and committed action toward what matters most.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT is similar to CBT but adds a special focus on relationship skills and the practice of mindfulness. Developed originally for the treatment of borderline personality disorder, DBT has been shown to be helpful with many mental health issues.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR helps to alleviate the problems associated with traumatic memories. EMDR has helped countless people with PTSD or related symptoms find relief and an ability to find their “new normal.”
Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT)
EFT is a cutting-edge and research-based form of couple therapy. Cardinal counselors use EFT to “roll up their sleeves” and help couples and families actually experience new ways to relate to each other in session.
Ego State Therapy
Ego State Therapy is based on the theory that one’s personality can be viewed, experienced and interacted with in parts rather than just as a whole. It works to locate and interact with the parts of the person that can most effectively enact and benefit from change.
Partners for Change Outcome Management System (PCOMS)
PCOMS is a part of every single session at Cardinal Counseling. We use the above therapy approaches and others as our understanding guides us. However, the most important information about therapy comes from the client. Cardinal counselors understand how people work, but no one understands how you work better than you!
