Breyta adheres to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) best practices for trauma-informed care. A trauma-informed approach is based upon four assumptions and guided by six main principles.

The Four Trauma-Informed Assumptions:

  1. Realizing the widespread impact of trauma and understanding potential paths for recovery

  2. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system

  3. Responding by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices

  4. Resisting re-traumatization

Six Principles of Trauma-Informed Care:

  1. Safety

  2. Trustworthiness and Transparency

  3. Peer Support

  4. Collaboration and Mutuality

  5. Empowerment, Voice and Choice

  6. Cultural, Historical, and Gender Issues

The Breyta Difference

Breyta clinicians provide a process-based model of evidence-based care. We focus on processes of change that lead to desired outcomes. We pay attention to signs and symptoms but aren't preoccupied with them. We want to help you live better, not just feel better; creating lasting change that you can trust. We integrate heart with science and know that just because we have a hammer, not everything is a nail. We tailor our treatments to meet your specific goals and needs. 

Our services are evidence-based, scalable, and transdiagnostic. In plain English that means we take a client-centered approach to care, where you are the driving force behind planning your treatment goals. Whether you want to enhance aspects of your life, learn more about yourself, or want to address problematic emotional experience or behavior, we can help. We address what behaviors and patterns aren't working for you and help you move towards meaningful behavior change. As you begin to live differently and engage in behaviors that are important to you, often you will notice your relationship to your emotions changing in significant and positive ways. Our clinicians are here every step of the way to assist you in learning to walk this journey.

When CBT meets mindfulness, the emphasis shifts from changing or fixing the content of our challenging thoughts to becoming more intimately and consistently aware of these thoughts and patterns. The awareness itself reduces the grip of persistent and pernicious thought loops and story lines.
