At MidValley Healthcare, we offer forms of mental health therapy based on individual needs. Therapies may be used singularly or paired with another option for the best results.
Acceptance and Commitment (ACT)
This is a type of therapy where patients learn to stop avoiding and denying their emotions and accept them as appropriate responses to situations they struggle with, and that it should not prevent them from taking the next step forward in life. ACT is useful for those dealing with:
- Work-related stress
- Social anxiety
- Test-taking anxiety
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Chronic pain
- Substance abuse
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
This is a form of mental therapy that identifies and modifies dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. The mind is restructured where negative and irrational beliefs are replaced with neutral or positive, rational ones. It can help patients identify, dispute, and overcome challenging thoughts. CBT is useful for:
- Eating disorders
- OCD and more
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
This focuses on providing skills for four areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. The patient is taught to be present in the moment, tolerate negative emotion instead of escaping, manage and change intense emotions, and learn techniques to communicate with others in ways that are assertive, respectful, and strengthening. DBT may be used for:
- Borderline personality disorder
- Eating disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Substance abuse
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
This helps identify self-defeating thoughts and challenges the logic and rationale of them and replaces them with productive thoughts and beliefs. Negative thoughts and actions can be changed and replaced with positive behavior. REBT may be used for:
- Feelings of guilt
- Extreme anger
- Unhealthy eating
This is available for anyone who needs comfort and guidance in their life. A spiritual approach may be helpful for anyone who deals with any sort of disorder or issue.
Family / Marital Therapy
These options are available for those with family or marital issues.
Structural Family Therapy
This is a specific family therapy that views the family as a unit. Instead of focusing on one individual, they aim to focus on the family as a whole to uncover habitual patterns and behaviors that harm the family. Healthier routines and creating a stable home life are important for everyone. This is recommended for:
- Families going through a trauma
- Blended families
- Single-parent families
- At-risk families
This is where group members can help each other by sharing information. Members may learn about personal triggers, early warning signs, signs, and symptoms of their particular disorder or the disorders of other members in the group. Group members can share their strengths and boost their self-esteem while learning about themselves. The therapist or other group members may provide feedback.
This is used to treat mood disorders and aims to improve the quality of the patient's relationships and social functioning. It addresses four main areas including interpersonal deficits (isolation or unfulfilling relationships), unresolved grief, life transitions (retirement, divorce, a move), and disputes between partners, friends, family, or coworkers. Interpersonal Therapy may be used for those with:
- Eating disorders
- Drug/alcohol addiction
This is about being in the moment and using your senses to enjoy and savor what you are experiencing. It incorporates meditation and breathing exercises. It is used in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) where therapists teach patients how to break away from negative thoughts so that they can restructure their thinking. MBCT may be used for:
- Preventing relapse
This is a counseling method that helps patients resolve insecurities by finding the motivation they need to change their thoughts and behavior. It is used to address addiction and manage physical conditions like asthma, diabetes, or heart disease. It works well for those who start with a lack of motivation for change.
This focuses on positive influences and events in life including positive experiences, states or traits, and principles. It focuses on character strengths, happiness and well-being, gratitude, optimism, self-esteem, and hope. Applying positive psychology to your life can help you flourish and live your best life.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
This concentrates on finding present-moment solutions and exploring one's future hopes and finding a resolution to the patient's problems. This therapy can be used alone or with other therapies. It is used to treat people of all different issues from family dysfunction to abuse.
Neurostar TMS Therapy
This uses a magnet similar to the one used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine and is used to stimulate nerve cells in the brain believed to control mood. It is specifically for those with major depressive disorder. This approach achieves remission in patients.
