Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that helps individuals understand the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviors. Once we can reframe our thoughts, we can start to see the change in our behavior we would like to see. This type of therapy is helpful for a wide range of concerns and has been scientifically proven to be effective.
This type of therapy can be used by itself or in combination with other therapy approaches. It focuses on the problem and how we can solve it. We focus on how you have solved problems in the past, focus on your strengths, and how we can work through this problem together.

Mindfulness is a helpful tool and is incorporated into therapy when appropriate. It is a way to help people bring their focus back to the present, as we often get stuck in the past or future where we have no control. It allows us to focus on how we feel in the here and now, without judgement, which helps us to become more in control of our thoughts.
We are trained in EMDR and utilize this as a supplemental tool in the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a structured therapy that involves the client briefly focusing on a traumatic memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation. This is an evidenced-based practice for reducing the intensity and frequency of intrusive symptoms associated with trauma.
We also offer Teletherapy at Anchored Roots. Teletherapy allows everyone to have the same access to therapy regardless of transportation, health, or scheduling concerns, right from their computer. Think of it as a therapy version of Skype.
