Therapeutic Approaches We Utilize

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT enables you to relate to your experience of life, yourself, and others with greater flexibility and guided by what is uniquely important to you and your values. Unique to ACT, the focus becomes adaptation to the whole experience of life – even to your “negative” thoughts, sensations, and feelings, so you can actively move toward a life of meaning and acceptance. Through personalized exercises and practice sessions, ACT will help you experience self-acceptance, make room for anger and fear alongside meaning, and engage with what is happening in the present moment. By identifying what in life is important to you, and taking purposeful, meaningful action, ACT provides relief to many individuals, especially those with chronic illness.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT offers valuable skills that you can master quickly and use for the rest of your life—especially in overcoming anxiety, depression, and related concerns. CBT will help you to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You will gain the confidence to challenge and reframe your thoughts and face your fears in order to help you live a more fulfilling life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain (CBT-CP)

CBT for Chronic Pain has proven highly effective in helping patients experience significant improvements in all aspects of their lives affected by ongoing pain. It builds on traditional CBT and complements medical interventions and other psychotherapeutic approaches like DBT and ACT. Through CBT-CP we can help you reduce the levels of pain you experience, break free from debilitating tension and anxiety, and live the fulfilling life you seek.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

CBT for Insomnia will help if you have persistent trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep, or both—whether due to physical or medical health problems, mental health condition, lifestyle choices, or factors unknown. You will come to understand the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are contributing to and compounding your insomnia. Then you’ll be guided and supported as you make and maintain the specific changes that will help you most.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis (CBTp)

CBT for Psychosis is aimed at helping you manage your psychotic symptoms. While the approach is still evolving, it has helped patients who’ve been identified as being “at risk” and those with recent as well as longstanding diagnoses. Working with your therapist, you will identify how you can better interpret and cope with your personal symptoms and their impact, increase your overall confidence and well-being, and live your life.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive Processing Therapy is a specialized approach that may be right for you if you have experienced trauma and have PTSD. Through CPT you will learn how to process your traumatic experiences and identify how your thoughts and feelings about them are affecting your sense of self, your relationships, and your outlook on life. You will then develop strategies for enhancing your self-esteem and experiencing a greater sense of safety, trust, intimacy, empowerment, and control.

Clinical Hypnosis

Clinical hypnosis is an accepted form of mind-body medicine that, in combination with other types of care, can help patients ease chronic pain, address sleep issues, lessen stress and anxiety, overcome unwanted behaviors, and much more. Working with your trained therapist, you won’t lose consciousness or control. You will be guided to experience a highly relaxed, focused state in which you can tap into your imagination and access more of your potential for positive change.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT builds on CBT to empower you to manage and overcome the ways of thinking and behaving that are keeping you from enjoying strong relationships and having a satisfying life. It is a skills-based approach that helps you recognize and address intense emotions, tolerate uncomfortable situations and emotions, ask for what you want or need, set boundaries with others, and be fully aware of the present without letting past memories or future worries get in the way.

Meaning Centered Psychotherapy (MCP)

Meaning-centered psychotherapy has emerged during recent decades as a means of lessening the distress and suffering experienced by patients with advanced cancer. MCP is being adapted to help others confronting profound, seemingly uncontrollable life challenges. Evolvinn can draw on MCP practices to help you experience well-being no matter what you are facing as you claim your power to choose and discover new dimensions of who you have been, still are, and most want to be.

Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE)

SPACE can give you specific, proven tools if you are a parent whose child—preadolescent, adolescent, or young adult—struggles with anxiety, OCD,  or related conditions, or is a young adult who is struggling to launch. SPACE teaches skills for helping your child overcome fears and other symptoms. Through SPACE treatment, parents learn how to be more confident and successful in walking the fine line between providing too much support and providing too little. They acquire skills for responding effectively to their child’s symptomatic thoughts and behaviors while reducing accommodations to them.
