Trauma Treatment

Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.





Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a common type of talk therapy that for some people can work as well or better than medication to treat depression. It can be effective if your depression is mild or moderate.




CBT addresses negative patterns and distortions in the way we look at the world and ourselves. Cognitive therapy examines how negative thoughts, or cognitions, contribute to anxiety.





Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a classification of mental health counseling founded in the 1960s by Dr. Aaron T. Beck.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations and events.
The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
