Evidence-Based Healing Types of Therapy


Are you seeking effective therapy options to address your mental health challenges and embark on a journey toward healing and growth? At Healing Paths Counseling, I offer a range of evidence-based therapies tailored to meet your unique needs. My goal is to provide you with the support and tools you need to navigate life’s challenges and achieve lasting well-being.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialized therapy used to treat trauma-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR helps individuals process traumatic memories and associated emotions by stimulating bilateral brain activity through eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation. This therapy aims to reduce the emotional distress and negative beliefs associated with traumatic experiences, allowing individuals to heal and move forward.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Are you having habitual negative or unwanted thoughts or emotions that are keeping you stuck? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely used therapeutic approach focused on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to mental health issues. By addressing distorted thinking and maladaptive behaviors, CBT helps individuals develop coping skills and strategies to manage their emotions and improve their overall well-being. Using CBT has shown significant improvement in depression, anxiety, and PTSD resulting from childhood abuse and trauma of all kinds, among other things.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that emphasizes mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. It is particularly effective in treating conditions such as borderline personality disorder, mood disorders, substance abuse, and self-destructive behaviors. DBT helps individuals develop healthier ways of coping with stress and managing their emotions.

Existential Therapy

Existential therapy is a philosophical approach to psychotherapy that explores the individual’s unique experience of existence, freedom, responsibility, and meaning in life. It encourages individuals to confront existential issues such as death, isolation, and meaninglessness, and to find purpose and authenticity in their lives. Existential therapy focuses on self-awareness, personal growth, and the search for meaning and fulfillment.

Attachment Theory

Attachment theory is a psychological framework that explores the impact of early childhood relationships and attachments on emotional development and interpersonal relationships throughout life. It suggests that the quality of early attachment experiences influences an individual’s sense of security, self-worth, and ability to form healthy relationships. Attachment-based therapies aim to address attachment-related issues and promote secure attachments in adulthood.


Assessments play a crucial role in therapy by providing valuable information about an individual’s psychological functioning, symptoms, and treatment needs. Psychological assessments may include standardized tests, interviews, questionnaires, and behavioral observations to evaluate cognitive, emotional, and behavioral patterns. These assessments help therapists gain insight into clients’ strengths, challenges, and goals, guiding the development of personalized treatment plans.
