CPT for Trauma

Cognitive processing therapy is a manualized therapy used to support recovery from posttraumatic-stress disorder and trauma symptoms. The focus of CPT is to support individuals to understand and reconceptualize traumatic events that are impacting the way they view themselves, others and the world they live in. CPT does not call for individuals to divulge every detail of a traumatic event, rather it focuses on thoughts and feelings that stem from trauma. CPT will support clients in using effective skills to modify negative thoughts, leading to a better quality of life.

CBT for Eating Disorders

Danielle utilizes Cognitive-Behavioral therapy to support clients in challenging their negative thoughts and maladaptive coping skills. Danielle also uses CBT to support clients in engaging in exposures to confront fears. The fundamentals of CBT can allow those who engage in this modality to stop negative cycles and feel more optimistic about their life.
