THE PROCESS OF THERAPY

What really happens in therapy? Research shows one factor consistent across the many treatment modalities and theoretical frameworks that leads to change: the therapeutic relationship. 

Regardless of modality used, in session, the therapeutic relationship is the glue and spark for therapy. Genuine human connection is formed when one person is authentically vulnerable with another. With Cal, clients find their vulnerability met with compassion and acceptance; this leads to healing. 

In addition to emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, Cal has training in and utilizes following modalities:

  • Person Centered Therapy

  • Existential/Humanistic Psychotherapy

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Family Systems 

  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

  • Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Techniques and frameworks are often not explicitly stated in session. However, clients can rest assured that interventions and process are rooted in theory and experience true to the heart of psychotherapy.
