Types of Therapy Offered

There are many types of therapy out there, but at WFC we have a few that we have found to work best for our clients. 

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) offers individuals comprehensive skills to manage painful memories and emotions and decrease conflicts in their relationships. This modality focuses on 4 specific areas: 

  • Mindfulness – Helps individuals be present in the current moment.
  • Distress tolerance – Increasing a person’s tolerance to negative emotion.
  • Emotion regulation – Offers strategies to manage intense emotions that are the root cause of problems in a person’s life.
  • Interpersonal effectiveness – Helps individuals to communicate with others in a confident, assertive way that maintains self-respect and strengthens relationships.

DBT essentially works with individuals to help them find ways to manage their negative emotions so they can feel balanced, in control and able to interact respectfully and successfully. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the premise that our thoughts influence our emotions and behaviors, and that by identifying and changing unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors, individuals can improve their mental health and well-being. Therapy consists of: 

  • Identify Negative Thought Pattern – Individuals learn to recognize and challenge negative thoughts that cause emotional distress or unhealthy behaviors. 

  • Understand the Connection – Individuals explore how their thoughts and beliefs influence their emotions and actions. 

  • Develop Coping Strategies – Individuals learn skills to cope with challenging situations and manage their emotions more effectively. 

  • Testing skills – Individuals will engage in practicing skills on a daily bases to see how their thoughts influence their behaviors. 

  • Outside homework – Individuals are given homework assignments to practice the skills and techniques learned in therapy outside of sessions. 

CBT is a structured and goal-oriented therapy that focuses on teaching practical skills to manage their symptoms and improve their overall well-being. By empowering individuals to become active participants in their own treatment, CBT helps them develop a sense of mastery and control over their mental health.

Faith Based Therapy integrates your Christian faith within the scope of therapy. Your faith is an integral part of your daily life and should be included in your therapy, if you so desire. You will have the freedom to discuss your doubts, fears, and joys that come with your faith. You can openly discuss God, the Bible, and your beliefs. Our goals is to help you integrate your therapy with your faith to create a more meaningful therapeutic experience that values your faith along with your mental health.
