We know that as you search for a “therapist near me”, you may have a lot of questions. At Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare PLLC, we are prepared to stand by your side as you embark upon the journey towards getting support and working with a trained professional. Our staff at Carolina Partners provides compassionate mental health care throughout North Carolina by offering quality psychiatric, psychological, and therapeutic services. The therapists at Carolina Partners work with patients in a couple of different ways, but the goal of treatment is always the same: our therapists work hard to help individuals understand why they are acting and thinking in ways that are troubling or dangerous to themselves (or others). This understanding often allows an individual to have more control over his or her behavior and to change these behaviors when possible.
One of the specific ways in which our therapists help a person understand and better control his or her behavior is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a treatment that focuses on the relationship between an individual’s thought, feelings, and behaviors. A common goal through this type of therapy is to recognize negative thoughts or mind-sets (mental processes such as perceiving, remembering, reasoning, decision making, and problem solving) and to replace them with positive thoughts, which will lead to more appropriate and beneficial behavior.
Another common form of treatment includes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT is a form of psychotherapy that was originally developed by Marsha M. Linehan, a psychology researcher at the University of Washington, to treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). DBT combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques for emotion regulation and reality-testing with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindful awareness.
