Each case is reviewed by the supervisory clinician, Todd Schmenk, LMHC.

What is Process Based Therapy (PBT)?

PBT is not a new therapy to add to the list of 500, but rather a new way of conceptualizing therapy that veers away from the medical illness model.

 

PBT addresses the bio-psycho-social context of the client, is flexible and dynamic, and encourages the therapist to bring their training, background, and strengths into the treatment room.

 

This approach empowers therapists and clients to build on what they already know works, disrupt systems don't, and apply effective treatment kernels to change the underlying mechanisms that keep a person stuck.

What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)?

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that aims to foster psychological flexibility through increasing acceptance, defusion, present moment awareness, self-as-context, committed action, and values clarification.

In the ACT model, psychological flexibility is defined as  contacting the present moment fully as a conscious human being and persisting or changing behavior in the service of chosen values utilizing experiential exercises, metaphors, exposures, and skills training.

 

It uses empirically sound methods to test procedures and evaluate predetermined outcomes and it advocates focusing on processes over presentation.
