Our Approach

20468013_sImprint Counseling uses various therapeutic approaches with clients. Two commonly used approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing. CBT focuses on thoughts, actions and feelings. It  also helps clients to understand how to use healthy thought processes as well as retain information and problem-solve to increase the probability of positive outcomes after termination of treatment. Motivational interviewing is a client-centered counseling style for encouraging behavioral change by exploring issues and developing resolutions.

Clients will receive education regarding safe, appropriate and effective emotional reactions. Clients will also receive information on coping mechanisms to aid in stress management as an effort to better equip them in dealing with life-changing events and crises.
