Types Of Therapy

Relational Therapies

  • Analytic or Dynamic Psychotherapy
  • Attachment-Based Psychotherapy
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Interpersonal (IPT) Psychotherapy

Do you find yourself craving a “do-over” or a “re-set”? Or a passing thought: “If I could just go somewhere far away, and totally start over with life and the people in it?” Are you having these thoughts more and more?

Relational psychotherapies focus on looking at your past experiences and quality of important relationships to understand the things troubling you today.

At C4G, our therapists will use any one of these therapies to look at the problem patterns that have emerged in your lifespan, why they exist, and through insight and awareness help you develop the tools to meet your needs now and going forward. Because these therapies focus on the development of you as a person and how you manage your stressors, they are often helpful with a variety of symptoms you might be experiencing.

Learning-Based Therapies

  • Cognitive Behavioral Theory/Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Theory/Therapy
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy
  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy

Ever think: I have no clue why I keep doing this?

Or: I keep doing this, it’s making me miserable, and I want to stop but I can’t!

Learning-based psychotherapies use the principle that much of what you do, experience, feel and think is influenced by learning from your surroundings through a rewards/punishment system. Some things you learned because they happened over and over and OVER again; some things may have happened only once but are so powerful they left a strong imprint on you.

At C4G, our therapists will use any one of these therapies to map out the types of beliefs and worldviews you have adopted from your unique learning experiences. They will help you identify what kinds of things reinforce your belief systems and help you develop practical tools to shift these systems. These therapies generally target one specific symptom or pattern you would like to change. Book now to get started.

Systems Therapies

  • Family Systems Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Gestalt Therapy

Systems therapies are used when working with family units for family therapy, couples therapy, or even individual therapy when the focus is family centered. Unlike the relational therapies where therapists’ focus on understanding the cause of symptoms, systems therapies identify current patterns between individuals and focus only in the present time (versus the past) to restore balance.

At C4G, our therapists will use systems theory to understand the worldviews and values of your family unit but also integrate social, political, religious and other sectors of society at large which influence how you and your family members function within the family setting. Our therapists will work to explore what pressures strain the family unit and you from within, and what pressures strain the system from the outside. These therapies are most beneficial when family functioning is of focus and when there are generationally transmitted patterns to address or when there are large socio-political variables to consider.

Brain & Body Science

  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
  • Emotion Focused Therapy

When your mind is in distress, something in the brain or body gets stuck.

Therapies that use brain and body science typically focus on bringing back online those brain/body functions that are stuck, holding on to unwanted baggage, and preventing you from moving forward.

At C4G, our therapists will create a safe and nurturing space for you to tackle the after events of a trauma or loss, like: unwanted thoughts, disturbing nightmares, feelings of hopelessness, depression, or feeling on edge and tense ALL. THE. TIME. Our therapists are dedicated to help you re-engage with life in a joyful way that is meaningful to you. Book now to learn more and get started.

Existential Therapies

  • Existential Psychotherapy
  • Humanistic Psychotherapy
  • Emotion Focused Therapy

If you have thoughts such as “Who am I?” or  “What’s my purpose?”, you may benefit from existential therapy techniques.

These questions are deeply philosophical that can plague your liveliness and leave you feeling lost in the world. However, oftentimes these questions are buried so deep under your feelings of unhappiness, emptiness, loneliness and lack of drive or motivation that you may not be aware they are even there. Existential therapies will take the things that are troubling you and explore how they are rooted in your existential needs to have purpose, be accepted for who you really are, find connection, and fear death.

At C4G, our therapists are dedicated to help you find ways to meet all of your needs, both philosophical and immediate. Given their extensive training and professional skills, our therapists are specially equipped to hear your story, understand your troubles and identify when you are suffering from an existential conflict.
