Counseling and psychotherapy are usually used interchangeably and refer to talk therapy with the aim of helping clients develop a better understanding of themselves and to facilitate changes for improvement. Shorter therapy times can also be used to focus on specific immediate issues and well-being. Maple Tree Counseling counselors are all trained and experienced in several evidence-based psychotherapies. These evidence-based therapies that are used include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT); schema therapy; psychodynamic therapy; narrative therapy; and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT). You can find out more about these therapy approaches at

In ACT, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, the psychotherapy sessions are designed to teach clients to accept what is beyond their control and instead focus on committed actions to achieve a more meaningful existence. Clients recognize that negative thoughts and feelings cannot be avoided, but they can create a healthy distance between themselves and unwanted experiences through the use of targeted cognitive and behavioral techniques such as mindfulness. Clients are able to develop psychological flexibility that allows them to stay present during difficult times.

The CBT sessions, cognitive behavioral therapy, focus on the connections between emotions, thoughts, behaviors and physical sensations. Clients learn to recognize the presence of unhelpful thoughts and behaviors that usually lead to troubling emotions and symptoms. This is an active form of psychotherapy where clients are encouraged to practice their skills between sessions.

MBCT, or mindfulness-based psychotherapy, uses a combination of mindfulness practices and cognitive methods. Breathing and meditation exercises are also used to relieve overwhelming emotions and calm the nervous system. Clients learn to accept and observe what is happening, including adverse events, without judgement. MBCT is often used to disrupt automatic stress responses and break cycles of depression and anxiety.

Schema therapy integrates the elements of psychodynamic therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy with the goal of helping clients change long-standing maladaptive patterns of behavior and thought. Schemas are deep, self-defeating belief systems that usually arise in childhood and cause certain behaviors throughout a person’s life. Sessions focus on replacing schemas with healthier patterns of behavior to meet emotional needs, such as: B. Finding self-esteem and nurturing relationships.

The psychodynamic therapy sessions examine in depth how past emotions and experiences influence current behaviors, relationships and decisions. This type of therapy is based on the concept that a better understanding of the past creates more clarity and promotes healthy behavior for the future.
