Bridging Body, Mind, and Identity. 

At 4 Healing Center, we believe that each individual can improve their sense of well-being and wellness through deeply connecting to their body, mind, and identity. We make it our priority to create safe environments where clients are empowered to heal their trauma, address problems in their community and environment, and work through difficult problems and feelings. Our staff are committed to providing accurate and compassionate assessment, effective and trained support, and the highest quality in therapeutic interventions. 

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a specialized type of therapy which is effective in treating trauma. While briefly focusing on trauma or difficult memories, an individual undergoes bilateral stimulation (which typically involves eye movements.) This approach can reduce in the vividness and emotional intensity of traumatic memories. 

Many of our staff are trained and certified in EMDR and some are currently offering consultation. To learn more visit our sister site here.

Mind and Body Bridging (MBB)

Being exposed to trauma can cause the flight/fight/freeze mechanisms within our brains to become reactive and sensitive, causing our bodies to continue to feel a threat, even when one is not present. However, the brain has internal mechanisms for healing itself, just like every other muscle and organ. Mind and Body Bridging uses techniques to help individuals return to a natural state of being and allow the brain to heal itself and trauma through gentle and noninvasive methods. 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which helps individuals identify and change negative thinking and behavioral patterns. As part of this intensive approach, the individual and therapist collaboratively and strategically develop behavioral plans to change ineffective behaviors and conditioned responses. 

DBT emphasizes philosophies bringing together both acceptance and change creates more long lasting and positive changes. 

Many of our therapists are trained and certified in these approaches. And, while 4 Healing Center is not a comprehensive DBT program, we often offer therapeutic groups which teach the core skills associated with DBT. 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a unique psychological approach focusing on mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies. Together, these methods increase psychological flexibility, connecting a person to the moment and their identity.  

ACT seeks to bring an individual’s attention to the language they use and how their self-dialogue can perpetuate unhelpful patterns and reactions. Through this method, clients are able to accept and manage their private events, recognize and commit to their values, and change behavior. 

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that addresses the needs of children and adolescents with trauma or attachment related concerns. It provides education and support to both children and non-offending caregivers, helping them identify, cope, and re-regulate maladaptive emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

TF-CBT is effective in treating childhood PTSD and for children who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events, and provides a family approach to healing trauma.

Experiential Techniques

Our clinicians know that treating trauma involves treating the whole person. Research indicates that incorporating elements such as animals, movement, play, music, art, and accessing nature not only makes therapy more enjoyable – it improves processing, retention, and the accessibility of therapy as well. 

Our clinicians include a variety of experiential methods in their work, including sand & play therapy, expressive art therapy, dance, yoga, guided imagery, video game therapy, gardening and hiking, therapeutic horseback riding, animal-assisted therapy, and more.
