What are the Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
CBT is a directive form of psychotherapy based on the theory that emotional problems result from distorted attitudes and ways of thinking that can be corrected. Using techniques drawn in part from behavior therapy, the therapist actively seeks to guide the client in altering or revising negative or erroneous perceptions and attitudes to effect positive outcomes.
What are the Benefits of Attachment and Experiential Therapy?
Attachment and Experiential Therapy help access, identify and process the negatively charged core emotions resulting in anxiety, depression, pain, relationship issues and other difficult problems. Evidence-based attachment and experiential therapies use trauma-focused and emotional focused methods that will help you realize effective and life-affirming change. Attachment and Experiential Therapy’s mission is to empower clients with self-awareness and the tools to make lifelong change. This leading edge approach distinguishes us from most other therapy providers today.
What are the Benefits of Art Therapy?
Art therapy, a hybrid field largely influenced by the disciplines of art and psychology, uses the creative process, pieces of art created in therapy, and third-party artwork to help people develop self-awareness, explore emotions, address unresolved emotional conflicts, improve social skills, and raise self-esteem. Art therapy primarily aims to help individuals experiencing emotional and psychological challenges achieve personal well-being and improved levels of function. Art therapy has been shown to benefit people of all ages. Research indicates art therapy can improve communication and concentration and can help reduce feelings of isolation. This type of therapy has also been shown to lead to increases in self-esteem, confidence, and self-awareness.
What are the Benefits of Experiential Therapy?
As patients progress through structured experiential therapy activities under the guidance and supervision of an experiential therapist, they have the opportunity to experience successes, identify obstacles, develop improved self-esteem, and take greater responsibility for their actions. Change, emotional growth, and personal empowerment are all among the benefits of participating in an effective experiential therapy program. Because experiential therapy patients are often focused on the task or activity at hand — rather than on the therapeutic aspect of the experience — they are more likely to behave in a more unguarded and genuine manner.
What are the Benefits of Client-Centered Therapy?
This unique form of therapy includes the client in every part of the evaluation and intervention technique’s, including the discussion about the plan of action. The goal of the therapy is personal growth achieved by the client’s increased awareness and understanding of his or her attitudes, feelings, and behavior.
What About Medications?
The use of psychotropic medication is closely monitored by a board-certified psychiatrist and is administered at the minimum level for clinical needs. Parents interested in learning more about transitioning to natural medicine are encouraged to discuss this alternative, while under direct care, in a secure environment where changes and side effects are closely monitored and evaluated.
Do Parents Receive Reports and Contacts?

All client’s at Providence Pass have weekly contact with parents. Letter writing is implemented as an integral part of restoring family relationships. Skype sessions are encouraged on a regular basis so parents can see their child and family visits are a normal part of our program.
