Evidence-Based Practices

What are Evidence-Based Practices? Sometimes therapeutic modalities can feel like you're lost in a bowl of alphabet soup. Ever heard of CBT, DBT, EMDR, etc.? These are techniques that through research and studies have been found to be beneficial and best practice for seeing positive results for change in clients. There are many different approaches.


Rising Strength Therapy commits to not believing one size fits all. This is the case in looking for best fit in therapist/client connection, as well as what one client may need to address their concerns versus another. Whether you are new to therapy, have had it previously and it worked or didn't work for you, I want you to have the knowledge and understanding as you pursue your journey further. Below is a list of just some of the modalities Rising Strength Therapy uses. See if one stands out for what you feel would meet your needs. 

What to Expect


Whether you have been to therapy or not, the process of beginning with a new therapist may feel a little unnerving, and maybe even intimidating. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible. Hopefully sharing a little of what to expect may ease some of your concerns. If not, please feel free to contact us so we can discuss any other questions you have.

A therapist's role is not to "fix" you. We do not believe anyone is broken. Our role is to walk with you as you identify your goals and learn the skills and tools to help you get there. This may be recognizing patterns in behaviors that have not served you well or held you back in life. It is also about finding strengths in yourself, and empowering you through evidence-based practices and providing psychoeducation. 

Therapy is not a wand to be waved for you to magically get better. Sometimes the patterns in our lives that hold us back have been reinforced over years or through trauma. The process has its ups and downs and will take some time. Be patient and love yourself!! Rising Strength Therapy is meant to offer a calming space, free of judgment and full of compassion.
