BUHR PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES

 

Psychologists at Buhr Psychological bring a mix of humor, compassion, and honesty to the therapeutic process.  They believe that while therapy can (and should be) difficult, there should also be a sense of warmth and understanding.

 

 Areas of Support include:

  •  Managing difficult emotions:
    • Anger & Conflict Management
    • Anxiety / Fear
    • Depression / Grief
    • Guilt
  • Managing Relationships & Improving:
    • Communication & Understanding
    • Relationship Goals
    • Jealousy & Affairs
    • Parent-Teen Conflict
  • Divorce Care
    • Co-parenting & Communication
    • Blended Families
  • Addictions
  • Trauma & PTSD
  • Borderline Personality Disorder

Some of the benefits you will experience from working with one of our psychologists include:

  • Improved ability to manage emotions leading to reduced stress & guilt
  • Better communication with people in your life
  • More peaceful household
  • More sense of control over your life
  • More positive view of your self 

Some of the approaches and therapeutic techniques you may experience are:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Focuses on the idea that how you think affects how you act and how you feel.  Techniques target those maladaptive thoughts.
  • Reality  & Acceptance Therapy: When life circumstances cannot be changed, this begins to address how you move forward.
  • Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT): Emotions, even so-called negatives ones, have value.  EFT helps you understand and use emotions appropriately rather than being a victim to how you feel.
  • Attachment Theory: Considers the importance of primary relationships and how they shape your view of the world.
  • Harm Reduction & and Trauma Informed Therapy: Useful in addictions work, these approaches combine to help minimize the impact and understand the underlying causes of addictive behaviors
  • Solution Focused Therapy: Sometimes it is just about the goal.  There isn't always a need to find the underlying causes and it is just about moving forward.
