Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)


Our therapists at Solace have all been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence based type of therapy that helps clients uncover core beliefs that are affecting their lives.  This type of therapy includes intensive self-evaluation and homework which are designed to address negative thinking and irrational emotional responses.  Your therapist will help you decide if CBT could work for you and can walk you through the process.

Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP)


Exposure and Response Prevention is an important type of Cognitive Behavior Therapy that is used to treat OCD.  The “E” stands for Exposure and describes the process of exposing yourself to thoughts, images and situations that increase anxiety and obsessions.  The “RP”, Response Prevention, refers to making the choice not to engage in a compulsive behavior after being triggered.  When you consistently confront your fears and resist the urge to engage in compulsions, the goal is to see a decrease in obsessions and anxiety.  This drop in anxiety when you stay exposed and resist compulsions is called habituation.

The Prepare-Enrich



The Prepare-Enrich Assessment is an empirically-backed assessment method used to clearly identify and clarify the stressors being faced within a relationship or family system. This assessment analyses the family system on a number scales in order to give partners a starting point for dialogue where they can begin to strengthen and improve their relational satisfaction. The assessment is customized depending on the faith, marital status, and objectives of the client. A family version is also available for purposes of assessing parenting style and adoption evaluation.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)


Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a unique and highly effective form of therapy that helps people understand and improve their emotional connection with themselves and others. While it’s widely recognized for helping couples strengthen their relationships (which is known as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy or EFCT), it’s also extremely beneficial for individuals and families. For individuals, EFT (known as EFIT) can be particularly helpful in dealing with feelings of depression, anxiety, or the emotional aftermath of traumatic events. For families, EFT (EFFT) is used to deepen connections and repair strained relationships, making it an excellent choice for families looking to improve their dynamic.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)


EMDR was developed to help individuals who have experienced trauma and distressing life experiences. Our therapists are trained in EMDR and experienced in using this form of therapy. EMDR has been extensively researched since its creation in 1987. The use of bilateral stimulation helps the brain resolve unprocessed traumatic memories. Many clients have found EMDR effective in moving them toward health and hope.

Play Therapy


“Fish Swim, Birds Fly, and Children Play” ( Dr, Gary Landreth)


Play therapy is a theoretical model that involves an interpersonal process with a trained Registered Play Therapist that uses therapeutic play to decrease psychosocial difficulties and promote growth and development. Play is the language of children and a play therapist enters the child’s world through the power of play. The play therapist works with the families in play helping them create a nurturing and playful environment delighting in the moment of interaction and engagement in the family system.
