Psychotherapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to your problems. A psychotherapist from Psychotherapy 4U, INC of Glenview, Illinois will discuss your problems and issues before making recommendations about possible treatment solutions. We offer an array of options, including:
Biblical counseling focuses on how God’s word is related to you individually. If you’re struggling under the weight of personal sin or the difficulties with suffering, we’ll help you make changes so that your actions are pleasing to God.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, also known as CBT, is a time-sensitive, structured and present-oriented psychotherapy that’s directed toward solving current problems. We’ll teach you skills to modify any dysfunctional thinking or behavior.
Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is also known as solution-focused therapy and solution-building practice therapy. It was developed by Steve de Shazer (1940-2005) and Insoo Kim Berg (1934-2007) in the late 1970s. This form of psychotherapy is future-focused and goal-directed. You’ll focus on solutions rather than on problems.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT, is a cognitive behavioral treatment that emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training classes. It’s used to help people learn new skills and strategies to develop a life that’s worth living. DBT includes skills for emotion regulation, stress tolerance, mindfulness and interpersonal effectiveness.
Coaching focuses on helping you find fulfillment and improving your performance while looking toward the future.
This form of psychotherapy helps individuals resolve problems within the context of your family unit. Each family member will work together to better understand the group dynamic and how individual actions affect each other and the unit as a whole. One of the most important premises is that what affects one member of the family affects the entire family.
Also known as insight-oriented therapy, this focuses on unconscious processes that are manifested in your current behavior. The goals of this therapy include self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on your present behavior.
Narrative therapy seeks a respectful, non-blaming approach to counseling and community work. You will become the expert in your own life. You’ll see problems as separate from people. You’ll learn skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities to reduce the influence of problems in your life.
Psychological assessment is a process of testing that uses a combination of techniques to learn about you and your behavior, personality and capabilities. This is also referred to as performing a psychological battery on a person, which includes a depression, anxiety and personality test.
Gestalt therapy uses a client-centered approach to help you focus on the present. You’ll get a better understanding of what’s happening in your life right now rather than what you perceive to be happening based on past experiences. You’re encouraged to experience past situations through reenactment. You’ll become more aware of your own negative thought patterns and behaviors and how they block self-awareness and make you unhappy.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, known as EMDR, is a therapeutic approach created to assist with unblocking traumatic memories, such as those caused by PTSD. Some memories that result from accidents, abuse, trauma, or violence are so distressing that they are not stored in the same way that other memories are. This can cause these traumatic memories to easily be triggered, resulting in a pattern of emotional distress. EMDR therapy involves recalling the traumatic memories while making a series of eye movements directed by your therapist in order to enhance memory processing.
