Therapy Approaches

At Alethea Services, we use psychotherapy and treatment approaches or interventions that are research-based and proven as efficacious. Our treatment staff are trained in approaches like the following:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance or Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy approach that focuses on helping individuals live more fulfilling lives by learning to embrace everything life has to offer instead of over-focusing on pain and suffering. Learn more

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy focuses on the roots of psychological suffering. Instead of simply addressing superficial behavioural symptoms, it helps individuals make more conscious choices and changes by bringing understanding and insight to the factors that lead to suffering in the first place.

Couples Psychotherapy

Our couples psychotherapy is informed by Dr. John Gottman’s research and treatment approach. The Gottman approach goes beyond simply teaching couples how to improve their communication to also include methods on how to increase emotional connection.

LGBTQ-Friendly Approaches

All treatment approaches and psychotherapies (both individual and couples therapies) at Alethea Services are appropriately adjusted for LGBTQ-identified individuals.

Our couples treatment methods especially are appropriately adjusted to the unique needs of gay, lesbian, bi, trans, or queer-identified members of couples. Learn more
