At Prisma, clients are never reduced to mere clinical terminology. However, when a clinical diagnosis is sought and warranted, it is crucial that the diagnostic assessment is performed correctly and that it arrives at a complete and accurate diagnosis.

Prisma offers psychotherapeutic and clinically relevant consulting services to a range of different professionals and individuals. Potential clients for these services include (but are not limited to) other psychotherapists; counselors; doctors; lawyers, courts, and other forensic interests; universities; schools and/or school counselors; parents; or businesses and organizations.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Every single day we make a countless number of choices, and the outcome of each of these choices have some degree of impact upon our life. Past, present, future: All points of time across our personal timelines are created when we choose to "do" or "not do" or any variation of decisive or indecisive activity in between. Some impacts prove to be of significant consequence to us - either immediately or subsequently forthcoming - and others fail to produce an outcome that appears to be of measurable material consequence to us in the long run. Our decisions become ever more important when we consider the level of control that we have (or rather, do not have) on all of the external forces that are constantly acting upon us every day. Given this seemingly overwhelming reality, it is crucial that we choose to actively involve our self in our life. We accomplish this level of control by becoming accountable and responsible for the two things that make us who we are: 1) Our thoughts, and 2) Our actions (otherwise referred to as cognitions and behaviors). Our thoughts are the things that fuel our mind and inform our actions. Therefore, it is necessary to not only understand "what" we are thinking, but more importantly, understand "why" we think it. Recognition of the "what" and "why" of our thoughts is only the beginning of the journey that we will take together. But together, we will engage in a systematic process that will uncover the distressing event(s) that tend to trigger our irrational beliefs, automatic thoughts, and misinformed conclusions. These cognitive distortions directly impact our problematic situational behaviors and physiological responses. Ultimately, these thoughts, moods, and behaviors must undergo fundamental changes. After this process, we are left with rational thoughts that are rooted within a framework of realistic and evidence-based conclusions that allow our past to accurately reflect our present and positively impact our future. Once our troublesome thoughts have been targeted and transformed, we will develop a behavioral plan, through the implementation of "behavioral experiments", that is more in line with our everyday realities and our evidence-based thoughts. Let's start your journey today!
