CBT is an evidence-based treatment approach that helps individuals to recognize negative or unhelpful thought and behavior patterns. It is a time-sensitive, structured, present-oriented therapy that helps individuals identify goals that are most important to them and overcome obstacles that get in the way. They learn skills to change thinking and behavior to achieve lasting improvement in mood and functioning and sense of well-being.
Mindfulness focuses on improving an individual’s ability to focus on the present moment. It teaches us how to break away from negative thought patterns that can often cause a downward spiral into depression and/or anxiety.
Provides clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships through mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Person-centered therapy focuses on the individual person, not the problem. It is based on the belief that every human-being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill their own potential. Person-centered therapists take a non-directive, empathic approach that empowers and motivates clients in the therapeutic process.

Behavioral therapy includes a broad range of techniques used to change potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors. It is an action-based, highly focused therapy. The goal is to reinforce desirable behaviors and eliminate unwanted ones. It is based on the idea that all behaviors are learned and that unhealthy behaviors can be changed.
