Cognitive Behavioral Therapy In Beverly Hills
CBT is a general term for therapy that emphasizes the significant role of thought processes in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the idea that our thoughts, not external factors, cause our feelings and behaviors. The belief is that we can change the way we think in order to feel, act, or react better to external factors in our lives. The objective of CBT is to teach you to better understand how critical external factors affect and impact your thoughts and behaviors. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, you can learn to positively change the way you act or react to those external factors.
Dr. Blair will work closely with you to define meaningful, realistic goals and determine ways of achieving them. CBT is based on learning to identify negative emotional and behavioral reactions and develop ways to counter them. The value of CBT is achieving effective and long-term methods to obtain positive results for the treatment of depression, anxiety, addiction, and traumas. Reach out to Dr. Blair today to discuss this type of therapy in Beverly Hills.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy In Beverly Hills
(Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is designed primarily to treat clients with borderline personality disorder. In recent years, DBT has also proven effective for mood disorders, eating disorders, and as a treatment for depression. DBT combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques with the concepts of acceptance and mindful awareness. DBT is used to regulate emotions and help clients to better tolerate emotional distress. Clients learn more effective alternatives and coping skills by understanding what behaviors are damaging, self-sabotaging, counterproductive, or destructive and how to replace them with healthy habits and adaptive coping mechanisms.
The goal of DBT is to reduce impulsive behavior, inappropriate anger, emotional outbursts, rage, anxiety, addictive behaviors, and destructive habits. DBT helps clients utilize effective coping skills to deal with patterns of unstable, intense, and volatile interpersonal relationships. Through the use of DBT techniques, clients will be able to improve social functioning and develop the skills necessary to deal with life issues by incorporating a more positive attitude and adaptive skills to enjoy more satisfying relationships.
DBT focuses on mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal skills, and distress tolerance. It involves intensive individual therapy often accompanied by inpatient treatment and group therapy based on individual needs for the level of care. If you are seeking borderline personality disorder treatment or treatment for other mood disorders, consider Blair Wellness Group.
Crisis Intervention Therapy In Beverly Hills
Crisis Intervention Therapy focuses on circumstances in which a client is confronted by traumatic events which he or she is not prepared to cope with. The client may not have adequate resources to deal with sudden death, divorce, life-threatening situations, job loss, retirement, sexual abuse, terminal illness, trauma, post-traumatic stress, or surviving infidelity. These sudden, unexpected events in your life can render your usual problem-solving and coping skills ineffective, resulting in the need for professional counseling.
The objective of Crisis Intervention Therapy is immediate, short-term assistance for clients experiencing emotional, behavioral, or physical distress. At Blair Wellness Group, we utilize interventions to assist clients in coping with traumas by using skills and techniques tailored toward individual clients and based on their unique needs. Crisis Intervention Therapy in Beverly Hills and the nearby areas effectively keeps you from developing poor coping skills so you can avoid psychological breakdown and helps you return to pre-crisis levels of functioning.
Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) In Beverly Hills
IPT is short-term, supportive, highly structured psychotherapy treatment that focuses on interactions between people and their roles in the development of adverse psychological symptoms. IPT is most commonly used as a treatment for depression in adolescents and people with HIV infection. Its use has been expanded to treating unresolved grief, role conflicts and interpersonal communication difficulties.
Additionally, IPT has helped special populations such as the elderly and people with addiction, substance abuse issues, and eating disorders and can be a very effective form of therapy. IPT focuses on unconscious and childhood experiences that give rise to personal psychological problems. Childhood history, personal relationships, and social contexts are seen as the basis of your challenges. Rapid symptom reduction and improved social relationships are IPT objectives.
Interpersonal Effectiveness Therapy is the second core skills module within dialectical behavior therapy. It is ideal for those looking to maintain relationships, differentiate between priorities and necessities, balance “wants” with “shoulds,” and help people to gain a healthy sense of self-respect. It also provides individuals with the tools needed to assess relationships and communicate effectively while taking into account the need for self-respect. Dr. Blair provides Interpersonal Effectiveness Therapy to help individuals gain an understanding of what they’re thinking, how those thoughts can have an effect on the body, and why that leads to certain behaviors. At Blair Wellness Group, we seek to provide patients with the tools they need to effectively respond to criticism, master assertiveness, and more.
Emotion-Focused Therapy In Beverly Hills
Emotion-Focused Therapy (also known as EFT) is an approach to therapy that states that our emotions are one of the core keys to understanding our identity. An approach that has been tested and proven successful, EFT can be used to treat conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, and more. EFT is a therapy that is respectful towards clients and has been shown to bring new context to emotional responses, help develop a core sense of self and how people react to others, and to help in achieving emotional balance. Emotion-Focused Therapy can be used to treat individuals, couples, and families who seek to improve the relationships in their lives. Dr. Blair will observe patients during therapy and help them to gain clarity on how their behavior affects the dynamic at home, at work, and in social activities and more. With a focus on helping clients to uncover emotions that they may not even realize are present, Dr. Blair seeks to provide patients with a significant impact that helps to bring clarity to problematic emotional states. Call us today at 310-999-4996 to make an appointment to start your personal journey and healing process for a brighter future and determine if EMT is the solution for you.
Psychodynamic Therapy In Beverly Hills
Psychodynamic Therapy is a form of in-depth psychology, which is the study of the unconscious mental processes and motives. Psychodynamic Therapy proposes that childhood history and experiences often shape adult characteristics, personality, and relationship choices. This treatment approach also relies on the interpersonal relationship, alliance, and support between a client and therapist. Psychodynamic Therapy has been used in treating individuals, marriage counseling, and family therapy as well as treatment for depression, anxiety, addictions, and traumas. If you are experiencing an issue with mood, personality, or relationships, Psychodynamic Therapy might be a good option.

Psychoanalytic Therapy In Beverly Hills
Psychoanalytic therapy is designed to bring context to your past, analysis to your present, and create meaningful potential to your future. It is ideal for making substantive, long-term changes in your life and is based on the idea that focusing on understanding ourselves deepens the insight we have into the conflicts that are habitually present in our lives. This type of therapy utilizes psychoanalytic theories as a way to frame and bring meaning to the process of healing. Dr. Blair will work closely with her patients to determine which approach makes sense for the given situation. Psychoanalysis is designed to bring long-term value to clients and has helped many to achieve success in working through issues. Contact Dr. Blair today to discuss whether this type of therapy is the right approach for your specific needs and unique clinical demands. Family Systems Intervention Family Systems Intervention — based on the work and theory of Murray Bowen — is a form of therapy that focuses on how each member of a family contributes to the family as a whole. Approaches to Family Systems Intervention include structural (which looks at the patterns present in a family and the role those patterns play), strategic (which examines certain functions within a family, including communication patterns), and intergenerational (which acknowledges patterns within a family that have been present across many generations). Family Systems Intervention has helped countless families with a variety of different problems and is ideal for pinpointing psychological problems that developed early in life and may stem from the family you grew up in. At Blair Wellness Group, Dr. Blair provides in-depth Family Systems Intervention to help you and your family members work both individually and as a unit to bring about direct change.
