At Rachel Dubrow, LCSW and Associates, we believe that everyone is capable of thriving in life, not just surviving. We want therapy to be a time where our clients can self-reflect, discover more about themselves, and have a few laughs along the way. We know that going to therapy takes courage and strength, which is why we strive to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where our clients can feel comfortable and safe.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT)
CBT is a goal oriented and structured approach and is based on the premise that our thoughts directly impact how we feel and act. CBT helps us to identify and change the assumptions and biases we make that reinforce our negative feelings and behaviors. By changing the way we think, we can ultimately change how we feel and how we act.
ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT)
ACT teaches highly practical skills, such as mindfulness, to help illuminate our personal values. It helps us become more psychologically flexible and helps to solidify our own vision in life.
Psychodynamic therapy helps to increase our own self-awareness about our past and how it influences our present behavior. Psychodynamic therapy utilizes self-reflection and information about one’s family of origin to gain insight into our relationship patterns.
DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT)
DBT is a blend of mindfulness and cognitive behavior therapy. It helps address the “gray area” of life so that things don’t seem as concrete and inflexible. It is used to treat anxiety, personality disturbances, and difficulties in relationships.
INTERPERSONAL THERAPY (IPT)
IPT is focused on attachment and helps clients resolve interpersonal problems that directly impact their overall level of functioning and symptom management. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment option or in conjunction with another treatment, such as CBT.
