CHANGE YOUR THINKING. CHANGE YOUR LIFE

In order to transform your life, there has to be a shift in perspective. In order to shift perspective, there has to be a process of true reflection of where you are and true surrender to where you want to be. 

Our team of professionals use a variety of therapeutic modalities to target mental health wellness. Success in counseling has to do with building a healthy and trusting client-counselor relationship, finding the root cause of the emotional and spiritual dysregulation, implementing appropriate evidence-based practices that target the individual needs of the client, and consistent client commitment in the therapeutic journey. At Renewed Integrative Counseling, we strongly incorporate daily holistic practices within our client's treatment plan to include psychoeducation, neuroeducation, nutritional habits, sleeping patterns, movement and exercise, mindfulness & mediation, prayer, bibliotherapy, artistic expression and more. Below is more information about a few therapeutic models of specialization at our practice.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to treat a wide range of mental health issues. Studies have shown it is an effective treatment for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and many other mental health issues. CBT focuses on exploring the relationships between someone's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. 
 

In CBT, clients learn to identify, question and change unhealthy ways of thinking. By monitoring and recording thoughts, people can challenge irrational or negative thinking patterns and respond to them in a more effective way. CBT teaches clients to reframe negative or inaccurate thinking which helps reduce unhealthy patterns. With the help of a therapist, clients develop effective ways of thinking that help engage in healthier beliefs and behaviors. 

 

CBT gives you the power to cope with your situation in a healthy, positive way and allows you to feel better about your life and most importantly, yourself.

CBT typically includes:

  • Uncovering the causes to your current issues.

  • Becoming aware of your thoughts and associated emotions and behavior.

  • Identifying negative or irrational thoughts

  • Reframing negative or irrational thioughts.

  • Developing new coping skills.

Couples Therapy

During couples therapy, the Gottman Method is utilized. It is a structured, goal oriented, scientifically-based therapy that helps couples increase respect, affection, closeness, and helps couples manage conflict. It helps to generate a better understanding between partners.

 

Interventions are based upon three decades of empirical relationship research from Dr. John and Julie Gottman. Through their research from more than 3,000 couples, they have shown that couples can accomplish making relationship last, become better friends, achieve greater understanding, find more ways to connect and become intimate, and create ways to support each another in the future.

Throughout therapy, couples will work on:

  • Building Love Maps: How well do you know your partners inner world, his or her history, worries, stresses, joys and hopes?​

  • Sharing Fondness and Admiration: This is where we focus on the amount of affection and respect within the relationship.​

  • Turning Towards: Stating your needs, being aware of bids for connection, and responding (turning towards) them.

  • The Positive Perspective: Helping maintain a positive perspective of the relationship. Developing a positive approach to problem solving and the succeeding in repairing attempts.​

  • Managing Conflict: Conflict is natural and has a functional positive aspect in a relationship. That is why we say “manage “conflict rather than “resolve” conflict.​

  • Making Life Dreams Come True: Creating an environment that encourages each partner to talk honestly about his or her hopes, values, and aspirations.​

  • Creating Shared Meaning: Understand important visions, narratives, myths and metaphors about your relationship.​

  • Trust: When partners know that their partner acts and thinks for the best interests and benefit of the other person in the relationship.​

  • Commitment: Believing and acting on the knowledge that your relationship with your partner is completely your lifelong journey.

Christian Counseling

Christian counseling pulls from a variety of counseling methods, one of which is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). One of the main differences between Christian counseling and some of the more secular counseling approaches is that Christian counselors use a wide range of materials, tools, resources, and psychological techniques, including prayer, scripture, affirmation, bible study, self-auditing or self-evaluation to help you combat your problems.  Christian counselors combine your spiritual health with your mental health. In other words, Christian counseling focuses on your spiritual health, personal relationship with God, and the belief that, with therapy, personal problems, mental health issues, and emotional distress can be replaced with increased self-worth and spiritual fulfillment.

 

Some of the things you should expect from Christian counseling include:

  • Prayer, scripture, and other supplementary materials during the session and as homework assignments

  • Family education & support

  • Learning how to cope with serious life events like death or illness

  • Learning to effectively communicate and self-regulate emotions

  • Self-reflection and learning to change sabotaging and distorted thinking patterns

  • Learning coping strategies for managing stress, worry, or depressive moods

  • Learning how to lean on spiritual discernment for making good judgment calls and decisions
