Bloom (noun): A beautiful process of becoming
At Bloom we focus on the individual needs of each client on their process of becoming. To do this, we utilize a variety of trauma-informed, experiential, and mindfulness-based treatment approaches that have been found to benefit anxiety, depression, disordered eating, body image issues, and trauma.
These treatment methods include, but are not limited to:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
Sand Tray and Play Therapy
In addition, Bloom follows non-diet approaches, such as Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size® (HAES®).

What is DBT?
DBT focuses on acceptance and change through developing Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Emotional Regulation skills.
Distress Tolerance skills help you get through difficult times when your emotions are running high. The skills allow you to soothe yourself in healthy ways.
Interpersonal Effectiveness skills teach you to understand what your needs are in your relationships and develop effective ways of dealing with others.

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a state of being fully present in the moment, without judgment of thoughts and emotions. By focusing on the here and now in a calm way, it allows you to slow down and focus on your needs in the moment, versus reacting to your negative emotions.
What is Psychodrama?
Developed by Jacob L. Moreno, Psychodrama includes elements of theater to allow people to gain greater perspective of emotional concerns, conflicts, or other difficulties in a safe and trusted environment.
What are Sand Tray and Play Therapy?
Sand Tray and Play Therapy provide safe ways to explore emotions when verbalizing becomes too difficult. These forms of therapy help individuals address emotional stressors, resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and connect to their inner self.
Sand Tray Therapy involves use of figurines and a sand tray in which the client creates reflections of their own experiences, feelings, and struggles. Most often this method is used with children, but they can be used with all ages, as it explores symbolism and potential metaphors related to the client's life.
