Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on increasing awareness of the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The therapist and client use these insights to collaborate and make meaningful life changes. CBT is reputed to be the most effective and the most researched form of therapy. It is considered to be the gold standard treatment for insomnia, and it is highly effective in treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and tinnitus.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT is a type of CBT that focuses on increasing psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility is strengthened by practicing emotional acceptance, contact with the present moment, shifting perspective on thoughts, and identifying & following through on valued actions. ACT has strong empirical foundations and is rooted in Contextual Behavior Science and Relational Frame Theory. ACT is shown to be as effective as traditional CBT in treating depression, anxiety, and chronic pain.
Hi, I’m Travis Edwards
Sometimes life can get overwhelming. The parts of us that make us human and are meant to keep us safe can work against us. Our problem-solving brains can drive us to thoughts and behaviors that feel good in the short-term, but in the long run get in the way of living meaningfully. This tendency can lead to getting stuck in habits, or self-amplifying loops of thoughts and behaviors, that ultimately don’t serve us and tend to get stronger over time. If you can relate to this then you are not broken, you are human. This happens to every single one of us.
By working together, we will become aware of the different ways you tend to get pulled away from the things that are important to you. Together we’ll find the strategies that help you get disentangled from old patterns that no longer serve you. Using your values as our north star, we will experiment with different ways of being that address your concerns and empower you to live meaningfully.
