Evidence-Based Treatment Interventions

Our primary therapists work in one-on-one sessions to identify specific issues, explore feelings, work through challenges, and set goals that ultimately lead to healing.  

It is through these individual therapy sessions that clients are able to understand the meaning and extent of their eating disorder behavior. One of the primary goals of these sessions is to develop skills and techniques to help manage emotions in a health way. They may also address an individual’s issues with self-image, problematic thinking, and behavior change. 

Our clinical team uses evidence-based treatment interventions, which may include:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behavior patterns or treat the disorder. The goal is to lean positive behaviors and thought patterns that contribute to a healthy life and recovery from eating disorders.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): A therapy founded on the idea that most psychological distress is tied to “experiential avoidance.” This is an attempt or desire to suppress unwanted internal experiences, such as emotions, thoughts, or bodily sensations.  These therapy sessions can help a client in achieving greater clarity of personal values and belief, then acting upon them and finding purpose and meaning in their life.
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): A type of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy developed to help better connect cognitive and behavioral therapies as a way of clients learn and adapt healthier methods of coping with painful emotions, often through acceptance and change. The essence of DBT is founded on four skill sets intended to assist in improving coping skills: increasing self-awareness, how to regulate self-defeating thoughts, correct black-or-white thinking, and how to better manage conflict and stress.
  • Experiential Therapies: A term is used to refer to different types of therapy that engage clients in some type of activity or action that explores underlying issues, such as repressed emotions or unhealthy behavior. Many clients who find it difficult to identify these issues with traditional therapy alone find experimental therapy to be incredibly helpful. When faced with challenging real world situations in experiential therapy, clients learn and practice recovery skills and begin making better choices that align with their true values. Examples of experiential therapy can be meal challenges, shopping challenges, equine therapy, art therapy, body image improvement workshops, and more.
