Psychotherapy, sometimes called Talk Therapy, utilizes a variety of treatment techniques that aim to help a person identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behavior.
Trauma - Trained
A trauma-trained therapist is a licensed mental health professional who has had explicit training, supervision, and clinical experience working directly, and perhaps almost exclusively, with trauma -- Certified Trauma-focused Behavioral Therapist (TF-CBT), since 2018.
Licensed Art Therapist
Professional art therapists, effectively support personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change. -- AATA.com
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
The term "dialectical" comes from the idea that bringing together two opposites in therapy -- acceptance and change -- brings better results than either one alone. A unique aspect of DBT is its focus on acceptance of a patient's experience as a way for therapists to reassure them -- and balance the work needed to change negative behaviors.
Somatic therapists guide patients to focus on their underlying physical sensations. From there, the mind-body exercises may include breath work, meditation, visualization, massage, grounding, dance, and/or sensation awareness work.
