We are a team of dedicated and caring professionals that seek to provide evidenced-based and proven techniques to meet your treatment goals. We use a unique and innovative client-centered approach to get the best results in each session.
(CBT) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a psycho-social intervention that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
(DBT) Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy is an evidence-based psychotherapy that began with efforts to treat borderline personality disorder. There is evidence that DBT can be useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm.
(TF-CBT) Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or caregivers. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences.
We Offer Evidence-based Treatment For Mental Health Issues
We provide exceptional mental health care for mild and moderate treatment to adults, children, and adolescents in Modesto, Merced, and Turlock. We accept HPSJ and CCAH Insurances.
Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home.
Anxiety disorders are the most common of mental disorders and affect nearly 30 percent of adults at some point in their lives. Anxiety disorders can get better with professional treatment and effective therapies are available.
People who experienced a trauma may have intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience. They may relive the event through flashbacks or nightmares; and feel sadness, fear or anger - ultimately detached or estranged from other people.
