Our team of experienced therapists combines traditional therapy techniques with alternative evidence-based healing modalities. If you are looking for a more personalized, nontraditional, active, creative approach to therapy that considers the interconnectedness of your mental health and overall wellbeing, Peace of Mind Therapy NYC is a great fit for you!

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is an active approach to therapy aimed at helping individuals understand and change their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Through structured sessions, practical techniques, and its collaborative approach, CBT equips clients with skills to manage stress, overcome obstacles, and improve their overall wellbeing.

 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy, which combines elements of cognitive-behavioral techniques with an emphasis on finding a balance between acceptance and change. It focuses on teaching individuals skills to regulate and manage emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and develop distress tolerance. A key component of DBT is its emphasis on mindfulness.

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP): ERP is a cognitive-behavioral therapy technique used to treat anxiety disorders, particularly Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). It involves gradually exposing individuals to their feared stimuli or situations while preventing the usual compulsive response, allowing them to learn healthier ways of coping and reducing anxiety over time.

 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps clients build psychological flexibility by emphasizing acceptance of difficult thoughts and feelings rather than trying to change or control them. Clients are also taught mindfulness techniques to help them observe their thoughts and feeling without judgment or reaction.

 

Person-Centered: The person-centered approach is a collaborative and client-driven approach to therapy that emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship. The therapist, transparent and genuine in their interactions, creates a supportive and empathetic environment where clients feel accepted, understood, and valued without judgment.

 

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT): SFT is a goal-oriented and brief form of psychotherapy that focuses on finding solutions to current problems rather than delving into past issues or exploring the root causes of problems. The therapist and client work collaboratively to identify specific goals and develop a clear vision of what the client wants to achieve.

 

Positive Psychology: The positive psychology approach aims to help clients cultivate their strengths, enhance their resilience, and foster a sense of fulfillment and meaning in life.

Gottman Method: The Gottman Method is a research-based approach to couples therapy that focuses on improving communication, enhancing conflict resolution skills, and strengthening emotional connections between partners. Grounded in decades of scientific research, this method helps couples build healthier, more fulfilling relationships by fostering understanding, empathy, and trust.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT): EFT focuses on deepening emotional connections and restoring intimacy in relationships. Through compassionate exploration of underlying emotions and relational patterns, we guide couples and individuals towards greater understanding, healing, and fulfillment in their relationships

Mindfulness: Mindfulness is a mental state characterized by focused awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, bodily sensations, and surroundings without judgment. Mindfulness is a powerful practice that offers a pathway to greater self-awareness, inner peace, and overall wellbeing

 

Meditation: Meditation is a practice that involves training the mind to quiet itself and achieve a state of relaxation and heightened awareness. It is associated with numerous physical, mental, and emotional benefits. Research has shown that regular meditation practice can reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain, improve focus, concentration, and cognitive function, enhance emotional regulation, and promote overall well-being.

 

Buddhist Psychology: Buddhist psychology refers to the psychological principles, theories, and practices derived from Buddhist teachings and traditions. Encompassing a rich understanding of the mind, emotions, and human nature, it offers a holistic framework for understanding the mind and navigating the complexities of human existence with wisdom, compassion, flexibility and adaptability.

 

Somatic Therapies: Somatic therapies are therapeutic approaches that focus on the body and bodily sensations as a means of addressing psychological issues, emotional distress, and trauma. These therapies recognize the interconnectedness of the mind and body and aim to facilitate healing by working with the body's innate wisdom and capacity for self-regulation.

 

Ego Work: Ego work involves examining how the ego functions, how it manages conflicts and tensions within the psyche, and how it influences thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The goal of ego work is to promote self-awareness and insight to empower clients to make healthier choices, develop more adaptive coping strategies, and foster personal growth and development.

 

Breathing Techniques: Breathing techniques are commonly used in therapy to promote relaxation, reduce stress, manage anxiety, and improve overall well-being.
