Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT): Observing the futility of directing significant mental energy toward avoiding psychological pain, clients discover how essential this energy is to the pursuit of a fuller, more meaningful life – a life that fits with one’s deepest values and brings lasting contentment.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Learning shortcuts to recognizing and refuting overly negative thinking patterns, clients revise (develop more positive, realistic thinking) their typical ways of viewing themselves, other people, and the world.
Interpersonal Therapy (IPT): The client resolves specific ongoing interpersonal difficulties (interpersonal role disputes, role transitions, grief reactions, or interpersonal deficits) that are impeding personal growth.
