People love to provide advice to others, especially when someone needs help figuring something out. While that’s nice and sometimes helpful, it can feel dismissive and intrusive and sometimes just annoying. What works for one person, may not work for you and the same is true for therapy.
At Denver Metro Counseling, our therapists are trained in multiple, complementary therapeutic modalities and we use approaches that best meet your needs based on:
Together, you and your therapist can talk about modalities they use and what might work best for you.
Regardless of the modality your therapist uses, at Denver Metro Counseling, we take what is known as a trauma-informed approach to therapy.
A trauma-informed approach to therapy is an overall approach to therapy rather than a modality. Instead of taking a “What’s wrong with you?” approach, we take a “What happened to you approach?” re-writing the stories you and others have written about you.
While our overarching approach to therapy is trauma-informed, our clinicians also have advanced training in a variety of evidence-based therapeutic modalities.
Some Therapy Approaches and Modalities We Use Include:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR Therapy)
Motivational Interviewing (MI)
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
Using the above therapeutic modalities, we provide one-on-one therapy for preteens, teens, young adults and adults age 13 and up. Our therapists have advanced training in their specialty areas which include:
