At Northwest Counseling Center we strive to provide quality mental health services to our clients.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a modality that focus on the interactions between thoughts, emotions, and resulting behaviors. Increasing self-awareness in these areas can increase one’s control over emotional or behavioral dysfunction.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is an evidence-based intervention that uses the adaptive information processing model to process distressing events or memories. This modality is helpful with trauma, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Additionally, EMDR is affective with children, adolescents, and adult populations.
Specialized Trauma Interventions
Trauma interventions include narrative therapy, hypnotherapy, and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. Additionally, neurofeedback allows one to process traumatic memories while producing appropriate brain activity.
Biofeedback is a modality that works with the autonomic nervous system to encourage a person’s voluntary control of physiological responses.
Neurofeedback is a method of feedback in which the brain activity is recorded and compared to a neurotypical database. Training with the immediate feedback allows the client to produce brain activity that is comparable to neurotypical.
Neurostimulation is a highly effective method of encouraging changes in cognitive functioning through active stimulation of the electrical activity of the brain. This modality encourages relaxation and optimal brain function.
When working with children and adolescents, creative methods are most helpful. Methods offered include play therapy, sand tray, and the use of art in therapy.
Virtual Reality is an intervention designed to provide exposure in a safe, therapeutic environment. The clinician works with the client to reduce distress caused by anxiety, phobias, or other fears.
