Providing quality mental health solutions that get results


Relational Therapy

Relational therapy is an approach that can help individuals recognize the role relationships play in the shaping of daily experiences. It attempts to help people understand patterns appearing in the thoughts and feelings they have toward themselves.


Object Relations Therapy

Object relations therapy is a branch of psychodynamic thought that focuses on relationships being more crucial to personality development than are individual drives and abilities. A central goal in using Object Relations Therapy is to help an individual uncover early mental images that contribute to any present difficulties in ones relationships with others, and adjust them in ways that may improve interpersonal relationships.



Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD, ABPP. It emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training classes to help people learn and use new skills and strategies to develop a life that they experience as worth living. Typical skills taught include skills for mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.


Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy looks at how the unconscious mind influences thoughts and behaviors. It’s largely based on the work of Sigmund Freud. Psychoanalysis frequently involves looking at early childhood experiences in order to discover how these events might have shaped the individual and how they contribute to current actions.
