EMDR Therapy is most effective when combined with other treatments such as talk therapy. As a result, some people who have gone through EMDR therapy can partially eliminate their PTSD symptoms. And sometimes, others overcome them completely.

After an EMDR session, the client should feel more confident about the past and be able to center themselves when feeling emotionally upset or overwhelmed.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT, also known as Cognitive Behavioral therapy, combines two types of treatments to create one. This unique combination makes it easier to help people with their mental health journeys. What are the two types of CBT? These two types of therapy are referred to as Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy.

A cognitive or mental approach is used to address the client’s negative thoughts patterns. A behavioral or action related process addresses the client’s particular habits and problems. Together, the therapist and client will break bad habits and develop good new ones. Something that can, for example, help reduce the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder PTSD.

Anyone who is experiencing mental or physical problems may find CBT counseling helpful. These issues could be caused by Addiction, Anxiety, or an Eating Disorder. These experiences are all perfectly normal, and CBT can help. CBT can help clients identify and break bad habits they may have developed over time, regardless of where they are. 

Anyone unable to change a behavioral or cognitive pattern can benefit from CBT Counseling. This therapy works well in therapy sessions, but it also works in daily life. The relationship between emotion and body sensation can have a taxing effect on your daily lives, and CBT Counseling can

Judging when to stop therapy is a straightforward process and natural thing to do because you feel it. It's that moment when it's time for treatment again, and you think, "huh, I'm seeing my therapist again already? I have no idea what to talk about." Typically this transition means we space out the time between sessions to go into more of a maintenance schedule to gain confidence that you really got this. You can do this on your own. Once that confidence is built, we are ready for discharge.

What happens in psychotherapy is very subjective as it is influenced by the interaction of what you are bringing to the table and your therapist's skills and knowledge. For all clients, we focus on exercising positive emotion centers of the brain and identifying strengths, creating stability in the here and now, reducing anxiety about future events, and healing the past.

Most people benefit from therapy once a week. We require once a week initially because this frequency is essential in building a trusting relationship between you and your therapist so the hard work can be done. Some people need to meet more frequently to help with forming stability. As progress is made and we can enter into a maintenance schedule, once every other week or once a month becomes feasible. Medicaid requires clients seen at least once every 30 days, and we have adopted this policy for all of our clients.
