MAY 7- ADHD Out in the Open- Counseling Options : Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-
RICBT is a group psychotherapy practice specializing in cognitive behavioral therapy and coaching. We have offices in both East Providence and North Kingstown, Rhode Island, and strive to offer state-of-the-art, scientifically-informed treatment for a wide range of adult mental health concerns. We help individuals with many different issues, including:
In addition, we help individuals with personal growth work, coaching them on improving work performance, family life, and relationships. We offer individual, couple, family, and group therapy. We use treatments (cognitive therapy, behavior therapy, and CBT - an integration, as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy [ACT], and Dialectical Behavior Therapy [DBT]) that have been shown by research studies to be effective and we help set measurable goals so that signs of progress are clear to all. We strive to create therapeutic relationships that are personal and collaborative, and that enable discussion of even the most difficult issues.
Our group workshops are an important aspect of the practice. They help individuals learn concrete strategies and tools, while also getting support from peers. Participants in group often feel for the first time that they are truly not alone in their issues and in their desire to improve their lives. Hearing about the accomplishments of other group members is often extremely motivational.
By coming to the practice you are joining a community. We think about the clinical staff, administrative staff, and the clients we serve as part of a community dedicated to improving the effectiveness by which we all lead our lives. We try to create a warm, inspiring, and informative environment. We invite you to share your ideas with us about how to better live up to these ideals.
