INTENSIVE TREATMENT

ACCELERATED PROGRESS WITH
INTENSIVE TREATMENT

For those facing severe symptoms or who desire a more rapid, concentrated approach, our intensive treatment program provides highly focused, immersive therapy over a shortened timeframe. Intensive therapy can be done virtually and in person. 
 
Intensive treatment utilizes similar evidence-based interventions as traditional weekly therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral approaches, mindfulness, and exposure exercises. However, the condensed schedule and higher frequency allows for faster acquisition and reinforcement of strategies.
 
This accelerated format may be appropriate if you have struggled to make gains with a conventional treatment model. It can also benefit those contending with acute, severe challenges who need prompt symptom relief and effective coping abilities.

While more intensive, our compassionate therapists appreciate the courage required and will guide you through each step of this immersive process. You'll emerge with a robust skillset and newfound confidence to manage your symptoms.

By participating in multiple therapy sessions per week and/or working in extended 90-minute sessions, you'll benefit from:

A quicker build-up of coping skills and therapeutic momentum

More immediate calibration of your treatment plan as progress occurs

Earlier implementation and practice of interventions between sessions

Ability to fully dedicate yourself to the therapeutic process temporarily

Treatment Approaches
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT helps individuals identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns developed early in life through empirically supported interventions. They learn new coping strategies, such as identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others differently, and changing behaviors. Clients often maintain their improvement after therapy by using these self-help skills. Studies show CBT is as effective as medication for depression, anxiety, obsessions, and other fears, providing patients with lifelong skills.

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

ERP approach entails individuals willingly confronting the very triggers and thoughts (images) that provoke anxiety without engaging in rituals. Through consistent practice of exposure exercises, individuals will learn how to interact with their inner experiences and find new ways to cope with uncertainties. The goal is to help individuals live a fulfilling, values-based life while embracing uncertainty.

Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)

EFT fosters the creation of a secure bond between partners. It helps individuals become more aware of their emotional experiences and better communicate their emotional needs and longings. Couples can recognize their negative patterns and, as the treatment progresses, create more positive experiences, leading to more meaningful conversations.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT focuses on cultivating psychological flexibility. It helps individuals develop a different relationship with difficult thoughts, make room for unpleasant feelings, and learn new ways to interact with them. Our ACT-trained therapists will assist individuals in identifying their values in romantic relationships and learning how to make values-based choices, moving towards more fulfilling relationships.

Mindfulness Practices

Practicing mindfulness can help individuals develop a different relationship with their mind and learn how to observe their thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations without getting caught up in ideas and opinions. Being mindful means observing our inner experience non-judgmentally while staying present with what we have chosen to focus on.

"I highly recommend Kulliki. As a therapist and a mother, she is empathetic and warm, which helped me connect right away with her and share my story. When we met her, I had unresolved anger and grief at becoming a mother and losing my independence that were impacting my relationship with my husband. Kulliki helped me express these emotions while realizing I was judging myself too harshly and provided me with tools and strategies for the times when I felt falling down in a rabbit's hole of self-judgement. I was able to reconnect with my husband and regained confidence and acceptance as a woman, a mom and a professional."
