Our Individualized Treatment Approach

three friends in treatment discussing mental health and substance abuse therapyAt Wings, we recognize that every woman who walks through our doors has a unique story to tell. Our compassionate, professional therapists are ready to listen to your story and work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.

Your journey of healing begins with speaking to our admissions team, and leads through a wide range of evidence-based and holistic therapies to find the treatment approach that will work for you.

Evidence-Based Treatment for Mental Health

Our compassionate, professional treatment team uses a wide range of evidence-based therapies to help you heal.

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines evidence-based practice as “the integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences.”

At Wings, our therapists are trained in the latest, most effective research-based therapies including CBT, DBT, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness-based therapies. Our therapists work with you to determine which of these will be most helpful.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT): Our thoughts influence our emotions, our words, our actions, and our destiny. In CBT, you learn to become more aware of your thoughts and transform unhelpful ways of thinking to more positive and effective ones.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Originally developed as a treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT teaches you skills to help you manage your emotions and deal with them effectively.

Mindfulness: Growing from its roots in ancient spiritual traditions, mindfulness has been clinically proven to help with anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems, as well as helping you reduce stress.

Trauma Treatment That Works

EMDR: Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is the breakthrough therapy that helps your brain reprocess traumatic memories. Studies show that it can provide rapid relief from the effects of a wide range of traumatic experiences.

IFS: Internal Family Systems is another evidence-based trauma therapy that works with your often-conflicted internal “parts” and helps restore the peace and clarity that come from being in touch with your Core Self.

Not all therapists have the specialized training necessary to treat trauma. Unlike many other treatment centers, at Wings all of our patients have the option of working with a highly trained trauma therapist up to twice per week, in addition to having two sessions per week with your primary therapist.

Holistic Therapy for Mental Health

Women today are increasingly looking toward holistic therapies to enhance and complement more traditional approaches to mental health. At Wings, we are proud to offer a wide variety of holistic therapies, including:

  • Acupuncture
  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness meditation (including trips to a nearby meditation garden)
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Equine therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Improv group
  • Rock to Recovery (music therapy)
  • Other fun activities like movie and game nights

Best of all, all our holistic therapies are facilitated by trained professionals who are experienced in treating trauma, and other mental health issues.
