What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Bio

"One of the privileges of being a therapist is being able to support another person through some of life's challenges and watching them come out the other side."

José is a bilingual (English, Spanish) Therapist at Two Chairs in Los Angeles.

He grew up in a community with little or no access to quality mental health services. He believes that access to safe, secure, culturally sensitive and research-informed mental healthcare could help people access and process emotions, thoughts and behaviors that will guide them to reach their full potential.

In his free time, José enjoys taking care of his houseplants and visiting nurseries to see what other plants he could bring home.

Taking care of your mental health can be challenging. Finding your therapist shouldn’t be.

Common types of therapy

For every type of mental health challenge, there are even more types of therapy. Our matching experts will help you get the care you need without the jargon, but if you’re curious about some common types of therapy, we’ve summarized them here.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) uses a mix of acceptance, mindfulness, and behavior change strategies to improve mental well-being 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, then 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.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

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, interpersonal effectiveness.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a present-focused form of therapy that focuses on identifying the way you form relationships, maintain, and act in relationship 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 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.

Psychodynamic Therapy

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.
