At Mesquite, we utilize many evidence-based treatment modalities which allows us to customize our care based on your needs and goals. Some of the therapeutic models we embrace are:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the idea that changing our thoughts changes the way that we feel and behave. CBT focuses on identifying and changing problematic thought patterns in order to change our response to and experience of challenging situations. CBT has a large evidence base and has shown high levels of effectiveness with a wide range of client populations and mental health conditions.


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) focuses on accepting our feelings as appropriate responses to certain circumstances and committing to making positive changes in our own behavior regardless of our feelings and external situations.


Family Systems Therapy is based on the premise that all members of the family are affected by what happens to any individual family member. Problems and solutions are conceptualized in the context of the family unit or “system.”


The Gottman Method for Healthy Relationships is a science and research based approach to couples counseling which focuses on the couple’s patterns of interaction and helping couples develop the tools they need to maintain a healthy, secure relationship.


Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) focuses on building skills in mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness which helps clients manage painful emotions and decrease relationship conflict.


Narrative Therapy is a form of counseling which affirms that individuals are not defined by their problems or their past experiences. Narrative Therapy focuses on helping clients understand and tell their “life story” in a way that empowers them to make positive changes in their behavior and thought patterns.


Existential Therapy emphasizes the search for meaning, free-will and self-determination while acknowledging the often painful and challenging aspects inherent in the human condition.


The aim of Psychodynamic Therapy is to help individuals gain insight into their emotions, thoughts, beliefs, life experiences, and unconscious defense mechanisms. Identifying how patterns in these areas are contributing to our current distress can be helpful in developing healthier coping strategies to improve the client’s experiences and relationships.


Both Interpersonal and Relational Psychotherapy are based on the premise that healthy fulfilling relationships are necessary for emotional well-being. These approaches to therapy are particularly helpful for individuals experiencing psychological distress related to their relationships with others.
