Therapist meeting with client at Alpha Psychiatric Services in Chesapeake, Virginia

Holistic Therapy

Therapy, also known as psychotherapy or counseling, is a process of meeting with a therapist to resolve concerns a person may have about their ability to manage some part of their lives or emotions. Therapy is always specific to the person who is seeking help. Our therapists focus on providing a holistic approach that incorporates several different treatment modalities. 



Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a common type of talk therapy (psychotherapy). You work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. CBT helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.

DBT (Dialectal Behavioral Therapy)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). DBT includes group and individual therapy designed specifically to treat borderline personality disorder. DBT uses a skills-based approach to teach you how to manage your emotions, tolerate distress, and improve relationships.

ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT therapy) is a type of mindful psychotherapy that helps you stay focused on the present moment and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment. It aims to help you move forward through difficult emotions so you can put your energy into healing instead of dwelling on the negative.

Person-Centered Therapy

Client-centered therapy, or person-centered therapy, is a non-directive approach to talk therapy. It requires the client to actively take the reins during each therapy session, while the therapist acts mainly as a guide or a source of support for the client. “Person-centered therapy allows the client to steer the ship."

Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy is a form of in-depth talk therapy that aims to bring unconscious or deeply buried thoughts and feelings to the conscious mind so that repressed experiences and emotions, often from childhood, can be brought to the surface and examined.
