At Dr. Stephen Oreski & Associates, we believe psychotherapy is a collaborative process. We strive to support and promote lifelong change that will allow you to form sustainable, healthy relationships and an overall sense of well-being. Together with one of our therapists, you will work to identify thought patterns and behaviors that may no longer be beneficial to you. You will learn to develop new ways of thinking and utilize new skills to live a happy and productive life. These changes will bring you closer to your personal goals. As you progress through treatment, our compassionate therapists will be there by your side, offering individual guidance, tips, and strategies to help you find relief and build self-confidence.

Some of the psychotherapeutic techniques we use at Dr. Stephen Oreski & Associates include:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) uses a mix of acceptance, mindfulness, and behavior change strategies to improve mental well-being and increase psychological flexibility. ACT is a very experiential therapy that uses in-session exercises, metaphor, language, and physical movement to focus on living a valued life instead of getting stuck in needing to “get rid” of suffering.

One of the biggest skills gained through ACT is listening to your own self-talk—the way you verbalize and understand things like past trauma, physical limitations, past relationships, or anything else on your plate. And, then, with that understanding, choose how to move through it—either by change or acceptance.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a here-and-now approach to examining how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and impact our overall well-being. CBT focuses on identifying maladaptive thinking and behavioral patterns and implementing specific strategies to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and other psychological challenges.

CBT is an active, problem-focused approach that helps to directly challenge various cognitive distortions and change unhelpful thinking and behavior patterns.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) focuses on learning to manage difficult or intense emotions and to decrease conflict in relationships. The underlying philosophy of DBT hinges on the important dialectic that we are all doing the best we can, and we have the ability to be better. DBT specifically focuses on providing CBT-like therapeutic skills in four key areas—mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a present-focused form of therapy that identifies how you form relationships, maintain, and act in a relationship with yourself and others. Originally developed for couples therapy, EFT helps individuals and couples identify emotional patterns, learn to regulate emotions and more accurately identify needs, and re-wire painful patterns of relating.

With your therapist, you’ll look at past patterns and work through any anger, fear, or loss of trust—coming out the other end, able to connect with others in a way that feels true, unburdened, and genuine.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy is an in-depth form of talk therapy focused on building insight into your relationship with yourself, others, and the external world. Psychodynamic therapies focus on exploring unconscious motivations, early life experiences, and relationship patterns through the therapeutic relationship.

Speaking freely about whatever is on your mind to address your most pressing issues, fears, or desires. You’ll learn to analyze and resolve any current issues by exploring the self and the past.
