Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a treatment developed by Aaron T. Beck, M.D., which focuses on noticing our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors within our environment and the interplay between them. CBT focuses on noticing and adjusting our relationship with our thoughts and behaviors, influencing the way we feel. CBT can be highly specified to fit your concerns and help you achieve your goals, which Dr. Snyder will collaboratively assess and formulate with you. CBT is a great approach for those who would like a targeted, practical, and time-limited treatment.
DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) is a treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. and the standard of care for individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. At this time, Dr. Snyder provides DBT-informed treatment for individuals, offering individual therapy. DBT-informed treatment targets multiple problems concurrently, balancing the main dialectic of acceptance and change. Individuals in this treatment will not only learn to better understand their thinking and behavioral patterns, they can also learn skills to intervene more effectively and to build a life worth living.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an empirically-supported treatment that utilizes foundations of acceptance and mindfulness strategies to help individuals increase psychological flexibility. In ACT, there is the idea that every human experiences pain and that increased attempts to control and avoid pain actually increase suffering. Using committed action, individuals can work towards building a life full of meaning that is in line with their values. ACT can be a wise treatment choice for individuals who may have tried other treatment options or who are looking for an empirically-supported alternative to CBT.
Cognitive Behavioral System of Psychotherapy (CBASP) is a behaviorally-based treatment designed for individuals with chronic depression. An empirically-supported treatment, CBASP helps individuals who may feel disconnected from their environment or perpetually disappointed, misunderstood, or unheard after interactions with others. Through behavioral assessment and intervention, CBASP helps people get what they want from interactions, leading to a more satisfying life.
