Our Therapeutic Approaches

Psychological, Emotional, Physical and Social Health

A Wide Range of Modalities

Psychotherapy approaches are as varied as the therapists who practice them.  At Red Maple, we have one eye on modalities that are evidence-based and grounded in research, while keeping the other eye on cutting-edge and innovative new theory in the field.  


Our therapists are trained and experienced in a variety of approaches, but more importantly, they are committed to getting to know you and your unique needs.  This means there is no one-size fits all therapeutic approach and your therapist will pull from the entirety of their skillset and knowledge to adapt the sessions to you.  We will work together with you to transparently find this right fit – you should never be left guessing what your therapist is doing and why they are doing it.
