How We Treat.

“You are unique, just like everyone else.”

Our Evidence Based Services & Modalities.

The Riverwalk Group has therapists trained in numerous evidence based therapies and modalities.  Our clinicians utilize diverse services and experiences, tailored to individuals and couples at every stage of life and relationship status.

We get to know your story, past and present, and walk beside side you toward a better future — equipping and encouraging you along the way. We treat what ails — mind, heart, body. We treat people. We treat relationships. We treat life and the things that block you from fully embracing it.

We, as a group and as individuals are continuously educating ourselves on the most up to date therapies so we can to help our clients get where they want to go.

If requested and/or felt it will enhance a client’s progress, we will work closely with primary care providers and other allied health professionals and integrative modalities.

Our ultimate goal is to create a uniquely personalized, therapeutic collaboration in an environment that is conducive to hope and healing. To understand more about what principles guide and motivate our every decision as helpers and clinicians, read about our CORE VALUES.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on identifying, understanding, and changing thinking/behavior patterns. With committed practice and completing “homework” assignments between appointments, benefits are usually seen in as soon as 12 to 16 weeks. Several of our therapists are specially trained in Trauma-based CBT which uses CBT methods to specifically address issues surrounding past trauma.


DBT, developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan, was originally created to help patients struggling with self-harm urges and who have difficulty regulating and/or dealing with their emotions. Rather than only focusing on overcoming misery, DBT also emphasizes creating a life you want to live. DBT has been found to be especially helpful for individuals with issues such as cutting, eating disorders, and substance abuse.

IFS is a comprehensive therapy appropriate for individuals, couples and families.

A group of psychotherapies that help patients increase present-moment awareness, acceptance, compassion and equanimity while decreasing unhelpful thoughts such as judgment, reactivity, and rumination. It is particularly helpful for individuals suffering from depression and anxiety, but is currently a promising treatment modality that continues to expand its applications into many areas and as an adjunct to other therapies.


CPS, sees challenging behaviors occur when the expectations being placed on a person exceed the capacity to respond and that some people lack the skills to handle certain demands and expectations. The emphasis isn’t on the challenging behavior, just the manner in which it is being expressed and the fact that there are expectations they’re having difficulty meeting. The focus on identifying the skills the client is requiring and the expectations they are having difficulty meeting are “unsolved problems” in CPS language. The goal is to help children, adolescents and adults solve those problems, rather than trying to modify behavior through reward and punishment.
