Our Approach

Our Approach to Treatment at Vantage Point


Our approach to therapy at Vantage Point is both holistic and integrative. Though each specialist is unique in her approach, we all believe that connection is an integral part of the healing process.  We also value compassion, equality, sincerity, and feel that all individuals have it within themselves to grow and heal from any challenge that brings a person into therapy.  Collaboration in therapy is extremely important and as such, we work closely with our clients to understand and empower them to move towards their goals and to live meaningful lives.

When we say we are integrative this means that we have specialized training in several treatment modalities (different types of therapies). This enables us to customize our treatment methods to meet the unique needs, presenting issues, and personality of each client. Research has found that certain treatments are empirically supported for different disorders, therefore, based on the issue at hand we will integrate the treatment that is most effective (i.e., ERP, CBT) into our comprehensive plans. Additionally, we acknowledge that a person's life experience, environment, culture, and family of origin can influence a person's current state and exploring this history can be an important part of the healing process.  For more information about our approaches, please visit our pages on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or call us at (916) 284-1416.
