What are the different types of therapy?

Therapy is a type of psychological care in which you connect with a trained mental health professional to discuss and resolve problems in your life. Therapists allow you to discuss your feelings, solve problems, and resolve conflict in a safe and supportive environment. The Alevea Mental Health team practices several types of therapy, such as: 

Psychodynamic therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the connection between your subconscious thoughts and feelings and your behaviors and actions. The team may use psychodynamic therapy to explore events in your early life and upbringing that may influence your feelings and behaviors today.

Behavioral therapy

Behavioral therapy aims to change unhelpful behavioral patterns and reactions through desensitization, exposure, or aversion.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy

Like behavioral therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on changing unhelpful behaviors, but it also addresses the underlying thought patterns that spark those actions. CBT is a short-term form of therapy that can promote long-lasting change.

Humanistic therapy

Humanistic therapy explores the idea that your worldview largely shapes your thoughts, actions, and behaviors.

Integrative therapy

Integrative therapy pulls techniques from various forms of therapy to ensure you receive the most individualized care possible.

Alevea Mental Health provides many in-house counseling services and refers people to Heart of Abundance Inner Balance Counseling with Dr. Jones, Psy.D, for additional therapeutic techniques.
