The Resolve Psychological Services' team helps people with anxiety-related disorders, depression, and trauma in order to improve their quality of life and establish a plan for treating them in a safe and effective manner. Resolve’s team uses established, evidence-based treatment techniques to establish clear treatment options and coping techniques to resolve symptoms. We use a trauma-informed approach, as well as humor, compassion, and understanding when approaching your care. We are not the type of therapists to sit silently in the therapy room. Although we will have you do most of the talking, we will laugh with you when something is funny, we will be emotionally present with you when you share your most tender, vulnerable thoughts, and we will save time in each session to teach you the skills that you need to feel better emotionally.
Resolve’s team aims to provide people with the ability to mindfully identify and improve their anxiety-related disorders, depression, and trauma, with the help of professionals that have assisted people in doing exactly that. The disorders that Resolve’s team addresses include but are not limited to the following: Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Anxiety Disorder, and those that suffer from phobias and other anxiety-related disorders and depressive disorders.
Resolve’s team uses humanistic, psychodynamic, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to treat your symptoms in an effective manner. Humanistic psychotherapy is practicing warmth, positive regard, and kindness toward the client, with an emphasis on empathic listening. Most therapists use humanistic methods to one degree or another. Psychodynamic therapy brings us into the world of the unconscious. In this approach, our therapists collaborate with you to consider what might be lurking in your unconscious, helping you to know yourself better over time. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an umbrella term that includes many other types of therapy you may have heard of, like mindfulness meditation, grounding techniques, breathing exercises, and progressive muscle relaxation. However, the bedrock of CBT is changing your conversation with yourself to make it more kind, more realistic, and therapeutic emotionally. CBT also involves considering what behaviors might help or hurt your emotional life. CBT is the most evidence-based type of therapy available, and our team is well-trained and well-versed to apply it directly to your particular set of circumstances and symptoms. In care at Resolve, we prompt you to consider your own positive and negative self-talk, and why it is so important for people to use self-affirming, loving language within their inner monologues in order to promote well-being and wellness. Resolve endeavors to teach you self-love ideals and adaptive self-talk, which are almost always poorly developed for people struggling emotionally. We love teaching this to our clients, because the impact of adaptive thinking is powerful, and can transform your internal world for the better, for life.
