Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Working with a therapist in Los Angeles who specializes in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) could be an appropriate treatment for improving your mental well-being.

ACT uses a mix of acceptance, mindfulness, and behavior change strategies to improve mental wellbeing and increase psychological flexibility. ACT is a very experiential type of therapy that uses in-session exercises, metaphor, language, and physical movement to focus on living a valued life instead of getting stuck in needing to "get rid" of suffering.

One of the biggest skills gained through ACT is listening to your own self-talk—the way you verbalize and understand things like past trauma, physical limitations, past relationships, or anything else on your plate. And, with that understanding, choosing how to move through it—either by change or by acceptance.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a here-and-now approach to examining how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and impact our overall well-being. CBT focuses on identifying maladaptive thinking and behavioral patterns and implementing specific strategies to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.

CBT is an active, problem-focused approach that helps to directly challenge various cognitive distortions and change unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior, which may be causing you stress.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

When you decide to find a therapist in Los Angeles, you may discover that Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) could be a beneficial approach for you.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) focuses on learning to manage difficult or intense emotions and to decrease conflict in relationships. The underlying philosophy of DBT hinges on the important dialectic that we are all doing the best we can, and we have the ability to be better. DBT specifically focuses on providing CBT-like therapeutic skills in four key areas—mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

When you get started with Two Chairs for counseling in Los Angeles, your matching expert may recommend DBT as a treatment option depending on your needs and preferences.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Working with a skilled therapist in Los Angeles with experience in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) could be helpful for you.

EFT is a present-focused form of therapy that focuses on identifying the way you form relationships, maintain, and act in relationships with yourself and others. Originally developed for couples therapy, EFT helps individuals and couples identify emotional patterns, learn to regulate emotions and more accurately identify needs, and re-wire painful patterns of relating.

With the support of your therapist, you'll look at past patterns and work through any anger, fear, or loss of trust—coming out the other end able to connect with others in a way that feels true, unburdened, and genuine.

Through this therapeutic journey, your Los Angeles therapist will be there to guide and support you through various problems, ensuring that you feel empowered and unburdened as you build healthier connections with people.

Psychodynamic Therapy

As part of the varied approaches employed by our therapists in Los Angeles, CA, Psychodynamic Therapy offers an effective, introspective pathway to understanding and addressing your personal challenges.

Psychodynamic Therapy is an in-depth form of talk therapy focused on building insight into your relationship with yourself, others, and the external world. Psychodynamic therapies focus on exploring unconscious motivations, early life experiences, and patterns in relationships through the therapeutic relationship.

Speaking freely about whatever is on your mind to address your most pressing issues, fears, or desires. You'll learn to analyze and resolve any current issues through exploration of self and past.

Your Los Angeles therapy professional will be instrumental in guiding this process, creating a safe and supportive space for self-exploration and resolution of past and present disorders.

We are building a world where everyone has access to exceptional mental health care.

Embarking on your therapeutic journey with Two Chairs is not just simple — it's empowering. We currently provide therapy in-person and virtually in California, Florida, and Washington.
