We can help you
Couples therapy relies on a dynamic mix of each individual’s history, personality, current patterns, and future goals or expectations. With this much dynamic intermixing, relationship therapy is one of the most complex forms of therapy – requiring specialized training. Rarely does one therapeutic approach fully address all issues, which is why we have a diverse skill set to draw from. At Clearheart, our main focus is toward relationship solutions that work, providing new communication skills to locate core issues, and then addressing those core issues for ongoing success. Some of the models that we draw upon include Emotion-focused therapy, Conscious Communication from the Hendricks Institute, Imago, to name a few.
EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, developed Dr. Francine Shapiro over 30 years ago, has increasingly become the gold standard for trauma related release therapies. Whenever we have unprocessed experiences, the suppression of either memory or emotions related to the experience can produce many secondary affects, such as some forms of anxiety and depression. EMDR focuses first on achieving a calm state from which to address distressing issues.Then it helps with deactivating the emotional charge associated with the experience.This is done through an eye-movement protocol. Next replacing the association with a more positive or empowered perspective in your sub-conscious. To learn more you can read Getting Past your Past, by Dr. Shapiro, or discuss further with your Clearheart therapist to determine if this is suitable for you.
MBCT – Mindfulness-based Cognitive therapy
Mindfulness-based Cognitive therapy combines the ability to focus on thoughts and perceptions that produce distress, through a more neutral mindful perspective. This form of therapy is often used in conjunction with Somatic methods, such as visualization and breath-techniques, to produce a calm state from which to neutralize your attachment to the distressing thought, sensation, or emotion. Observing, rather than being gripped within an emotional or mental narrative, allows fresh perspectives to surface.
CBT – Cognitive Behavioral therapy
Cognitive Behavioral therapy is an evidence-based form of therapy that addresses the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When thoughts and beliefs are challenged, often the feeling related to the thought will shift, allowing your behavior to modify as well. Behavioral habituation requires both an intentional interruption of the behavior, and a reframe of the thoughts associated with the maladaptive pattern. CBT has become essentially an umbrella- term, with many other sub branches. It is often implicit in most forms of therapy.
