Treatment Models

Counseling SDC is a private counseling practice focused on ALL relationships, including the one you have with the counselor you see. Although we utilize several practice models to understand and develop individualized counseling directives, our services start with the relationship you build with your therapist. From the first time you speak with your clinician to find out if counseling is right for you to the final session, we want this to be personal. There is no theory, practice model, technique or word of wisdom that could change the way someone feels when they just are not connecting with a counselor.

Our treatment approach is Cognitive Behavioral Interpersonal Theory. This structured system integrates emotional intelligence (EI), neurological and biological components and mindfulness techniques (Cordier & Tampi, 2016). Interpersonal Cognitive Behavioral Therapy also focuses on the interpersonal connection and delivery of counseling and psycho-education from your clinician. If you do not like the counselor, learning and growth is highly improbable.

When we are addressing problems in relationships or working towards specific goals that you have we also integrate solution focused and motivational interviewing techniques. These techniques allow us to dive right into change and where you are in this process. These theories are also used in our coaching programs to provide more structure and increase outcomes. Coaching is an action driven and task oriented process that is separate from counseling.

For families, partnerships and couples, Counseling SDC utilizes ideas and concepts from Family Systems Theory, EFT and Gottman. We use these modalities to identify and work through relationship difficulties. At Counseling SDC we value facing these challenges head on with proven methods. The theories mentioned here have significant scientific evidence of effectiveness.

In addition to these general practice models, Counseling SDC encourages our counselors to obtain education and certification in other areas to enrich the counseling experience. Please see the ​clinicians​ ​page for more information about individual counselor modalities and training.
