Why Work with Us?

We know there are lots of options out there when it comes down to choosing a therapist. Each of the clinicians working at CEPS is a well-rounded professional who can work with the most common concerns that bring clients to seek support: anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties. Although each clinician brings a unique way to work with clients, our general approach to therapy is:

  • Trauma-Informed: We believe that the problems our clients experience are the result of their best efforts to cope with events or relationships that have been overwhelming at some point in their lives. In order to heal, therapist and clients need to partner in doing therapy work that is meaningful, challenging, growth promoting, while at the same time keeping the work at an optimal level of comfort. 
  • Emotion-Focused/Experiential: We believe that emotions have a fundamental role in sickness and health. Learning to face our feelings instead of avoiding them is at the root of healing from psychological suffering. We are also big proponents of the importance of working with the body and the brain as a unit so that our clients can really move forward towards their goals. Our therapists are trained to incorporate body-centered modalities such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy in their work with clients.

We invite you to learn more about the unique services and approaches of amazing team of Clinicians.
