Specialized Treatment: Trauma-Informed Care

The entire Breyta experience has been carefully structured through trauma-informed methodology; from our dedicated team of trauma-informed therapists, all of whom provide care with the utmost sensitivity and intentionality, to our waiting room and offices, all designed from a trauma-informed lens.

Elevated Expertise: Doctoral-Level Psychologists

In order to provide the highest level of psychological care, every one of our clinical psychologists has received their doctorate in the mental health field. We use our specialized knowledge and expertise to offer the most comprehensive and innovative therapeutic approaches.

Innovative Techniques: Process-Based Psychotherapy

Through process-based therapy, the most innovative form of evidence-based therapy, we gain a comprehensive understanding of what makes you who you are, including the core processes keeping you stuck. We then intentionally choose a unique combination of evidence-based approaches to create the most effective treatment plan for you.

Personalized Approach: Client-Centric Practice

The experiences that have shaped you and how you processed them are completely unique. Our client-centric approach to therapy is just as personal, placing you at the center of your care. The specific therapy you receive is a direct reflection of you, evolving with you as you heal and grow.

Frequently Asked Questions:

You and your psychologist will meet for an initial session called an “intake”. During this session, your psychologist will gather a detailed history so that they can understand your experiences and help you set goals for treatment. After the intake, you and your therapist will meet at a frequency that you mutually decide is the best fit for you. Weekly sessions are recommended at first to build traction, but meeting every other week may also be possible if this best fits your needs. Meetings following intake are 50 minutes (unless you request a longer session).

We will help you recognize behaviors, thoughts, and feelings that have been holding you back and limiting your potential or causing you pain. We provide you with effective techniques and skills, while empowering you to move towards growth and healing. Through therapy, you will start to feel more in control of your own experience and behaviors, which will lead to increased sense of happiness and satisfaction.

Imagine knowing that you’re capable, equipped, and confident in meeting your mental health issues head-on. What would it be like to know that you can accomplish goals you set for yourself regardless of what emotion shows up – because you can handle it with confidence? These aren’t fantasies. They’re real results that you can achieve with therapy.

Many people spend years trying to avoid their problems for fear that if they address them it will “undo” them or “make it worse”. If this sounds familiar to you, you may notice that you spend a great deal of energy and time trying to “not talk about it” or “not think about it”. All that avoidance seems like it’s helping you get out of having to deal with the problem. The irony is that avoidance is a short-term solution that creates long-term problems. Avoidance might look like isolation, loss of things you once enjoyed, anger, substance use issues, relationship difficulty, or checking out from the present moment. These behaviors result in a secondary layer of stress and pain that sits on top of the original problem.

The truth is, your problem is there whether you try to avoid it or not. No matter how hard you try to not deal with a painful issue, it’s still there and you’re still aware of it. Therapy creates space and support to help you sit with the difficult things in your life. It doesn’t create painful emotions, but rather opens a window so that your pain can be let out; so you don’t have to carry it in the same way anymore. Talking about difficult issues in therapy may not be easy, but it is the way through. Therapy offers a safe, controlled, and respectful environment for you to explore these things.

Yes! We offer both in-person and virtual care options. You can enjoy the safety and comfort of your own space while taking courageous steps toward healing with your psychologist of choice. We offer HIPAA-compliant telehealth platforms to meet your needs. We conduct the same type of treatments in the same way we would in person so you can take comfort in the fact that you aren’t missing any important aspect of care. Telehealth appointments are available in Raleigh, throughout the state of North Carolina, and in select other states.

The length of time it takes to work through mental health challenges varies from person-to-person. While some clients begin to see results after a few weeks, for others it takes longer. The important thing to remember is there is no right or wrong way to heal. By working closely with our psychologists, we’ll continue to evolve your personalized treatment plan with your progress, consistently moving you toward meaningful change, as defined by you.

For each client, we use a personalized combination of evidence-based methods, namely Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). CBT enables you to identify negative or distorted beliefs you may have about yourself, while ACT helps you change your relationship to unhelpful thoughts and feelings, be more present, and engage in meaningful behaviors, both of which help you along the path to improved wellness.
