Therapeutic Modalities

Seeing Our Adolescents Rise partners with Reflective Wellness, a dynamic group of therapeutic clinicians, to assist and provide our clients with all of their therapeutic needs.

Trauma-focused​ - Trauma-focused therapy uses a range of techniques for the purpose of dissipating the difficult feelings experienced by a trauma victim through a change in their thoughts, beliefs, and behavior.

 

IFS - The idea that individuals cannot be fully understood in isolation from the family unit – to develop techniques and strategies to effectively address issues within a person’s internal community or family. This evidence-based approach assumes each individual possesses a variety of sub-personalities, or “parts,” and attempts to get to know each of these parts better to achieve healing.

 

EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.

 

Sand Play - Through creative expressions, a person in therapy is able to manifest in sand the things they would otherwise not be able to vocalize or address in traditional therapy.  The therapist treats the person as whole and healed, knowing that the process of sand tray therapy allows the person to find the answers that are already within them.  Used for both children and adults it is an effective approach to allow the body to release emotions when talk therapy is not working.

 

NFB - Neurofeedback also known as neurobiofeedback or EEG Biofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses sensors placed on the scalp to measure brain waves. NFB uses real-time displays of EEG to exhibit brain activity and teach self-regulation.  A signal is produced that can be used as immediate feedback on brain activity to teach self-regulation.  As the desired brain wave is achieved, the brain learns to direct itself toward a more desirable performance level. Each individual is set up to target specific frequencies dependent on their wants and needs. Neurofeedback is completely holistic, non-invasive and painless.

 

Addictions - Addiction treatment acknowledges that substance abuse is a complicated yet manageable illness that can alter both behavior and brain function. It also addresses the physical, emotional and mental health needs of the patient, not just the addiction issues.  Working toward sobriety to achieve meaningful and progressive treatment.

 

DBT - Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral treatment that was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder.  DBT has been found especially effective for those with suicidal and other multiply occurring severely dysfunctional behaviors.

CBT - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.  By exploring patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions and the beliefs that direct these thoughts, people with mental illness can modify their patterns of thinking to improve coping.

 

Equine Therapy - With the utilization of the Draper Sensory Method, an innovative and a worldwide unique methodology based on scientific principles of the brain-body connection and a well-defined series of equine mounted activities. It supports and enhances participants’ abilities to think more rationally, make more socially acceptable decisions and receive hope for a successful and better life

 

Canine Therapy - Canine-assisted therapy uses dogs to promote health and healing. Dogs are accepting, comforting and non-judgmental, making them ideal therapy companions.  Therapy dogs undergo extensive training before working with clients.  Clients may learn how to give a dog commands, walk and play with a dog and pet and care for a dog.  The therapist will then process the experience with the client gaining insight in their feelings about the experience and how the lessons learned can apply to other situations .

Yoga/Meditation - Classes are held with the specific intention of using various yogic and meditative techniques to create a more relaxed, stronger, balanced body and mind, to facilitate healing from specific physical and mental illnesses.
