1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
“Cognitive Therapy is a focused, problem-solving psychotherapy that has been shown in over 375 outcome studies to be highly effective for the treatment of many mental health problems such as depression, general anxiety disorders, panic, anger and marital distress. It has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of medical conditions such as chronic pain, hypertension, and fibromyalgia. The therapist and client work together as a team to identify and solve problems, and therapists help clients to overcome their difficulties through changing their thinking, behavior, and emotional response.” (source: Academy of Cognitive Therapy).

2) Dialectical Behavior Therapy Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP, at the University of Washington, is a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral treatment that was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD). DBT has been found especially effective for those with suicidal and other multiply occurring severely dysfunctional behaviors. Research has shown DBT to be effective in reducing suicidal behavior, psychiatric hospitalization, treatment dropout, substance abuse, anger, and interpersonal difficulties. DBT is comprised of individual therapy, group skills training, and phone consultation.

Play therapy is a theoretical-based psychotherapy technique whereby children’s natural means of expression, “play”, is used as a therapeutic method to assist them in coping with emotional difficulties, stress, behavioral problems, relational problems and various traumatic experiences. We provide the following play therapies: sand, art, games, play therapy for anxious children, for depressed children, for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, for PTSD, cognitive behavioral play therapy, psychodynamic play therapy and filial play therapy (parent-child).

5) Biofeedback/ Neurofeedback Training - “Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately "feed back" information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.” (source: The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, Inc at http://www.aapb.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3287) For more information, please visit at www.aapb.org - “Neurofeedback is a technique in which we train the brain to help improve its ability to regulate all bodily functions and to take care of itself. When the brain is not functioning well, evidence of this often shows up in the EEG (Electroencephalogram). By challenging the brain, much as you challenge your body in physical exercise, we can help your brain learn to function better.” (source: EEG Spectrum International at http://www.eegspectrum.com/IntroToNeuro/) Neurofeedback has been effectively used to improve attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, PTSD (Trauma), depression, migraines (headache) and substance abuse.
