Pathways to Peace

Who we serve

We work with older adolescents, young adults, and adults who are struggling with emotional distress and who try to control (avoid, escape, or get rid of) their distress with behaviors that prolong suffering and that don’t align with their values and/or future goals. We understand that these behaviors are not the problem (although they can certainly create issues and even crises); they are the ways you’ve adapted to alleviate your pain. We are committed to working with you to find and practice more effective, value-aligned ways to manage the pain and challenges that are inevitable in life.

What we strive for

We will teach you how to notice and have your thoughts and emotions without being defined by, consumed by, or controlled by them. We will also practice being the mindful observer of our experience in order to be present, act in line with our values, and get in touch with the inner wisdom within each of us. Through this we can develop freedom from our past, be our authentic selves, and live a meaningful and fulfilling life, even with inevitable pains and challenges.

Emotional Experiencing

We work from a “third wave” contextual behavioral perspective using mindfulness, acceptance, emotional experiencing, identifying and processing past-present connections, and relational processing within the context of a validating therapeutic relationship. The treatments we currently offer include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for Complex PTSD (DBT-PTSD), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Psychotherapy (EMDR), and Contextually Focused Dialectical Behavior Therapy (CF-DBT).
