What Kind of Therapy Do We Specialize In?

By | Biltmore, Blog | No Comments

At Biltmore Psychology and Counseling we see clients based on a variety of needs. We see clients who are seeking therapy for anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma, PTSD, couples counseling, and much more.

When you’re looking for a therapist you might come across different types of modalities of therapy, like CBT, EFT or EMDR. Sometimes these names and acronyms can be confusing. So we thought we focus our theme for May on different modalities of therapy!

Commons Types of Modalities used in Therapy:


CBT, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of therapy used to help understand and change the thoughts and feelings that ultimately influence our behaviors. It can be used to help anxiety, depression, phobias, and addiction to name a few.


EFT, or Emotionally Focused Therapy is a type of therapy that is most commonly used in adult relationships and couples counseling. EFT is meant to identify patterns that might be influencing negative emotions/behaviors and work to develop more trust and a more secure bond.


EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a type of therapy used to treat clients who are having trouble overcoming traumatic events and memories. It can help heal from emotional distress associated with these memories and past events. There are many processes involved in EMDR therapy, and it has been widely seen as a great way to help people move on from distressing memories.

These are just a few types of therapy that we do here at Biltmore Psychology and Counseling. We tailor each session to what the individual or couple is going through. We take the time to develop a treatment plan and discuss the steps moving forward to successfully implement that plan.

Each therapy office is different. If you are interested in a certain type of therapy, feel free to call and ask more about what we specialize in! And keep your eye out for our new YouTube videos this month on different modalities.

When to stop Fertility treatments?

By | Blog | No Comments

For the month of April, we are talking about Infertility. We got a question about how to bridge the gap when two people are starting to drift apart when it comes to fertility treatments?

This can be a really difficult thing. You and your partner have set out on a difficult journey, and one of you may reach the end of their rope before you do.

In today’s video, Dr. Melisas Estavillo talks about what to do when you and your spouse start to disagree about when to stop fertility treatments.

Infertility Counseling

By | Infertility | No Comments

We all know of a couple or family going through infertility struggles, and we might even be going through these struggles ourselves. One thing people generally don’t talk about when it comes to infertility is couples counseling. The stress, anxiety, depression, guilt, and anger are all things that are common when experiencing infertility. These can make it difficult to love yourself and your partner and be a strong support system during the utmost important time.

We encourage individuals and couples to seek counseling early on in their struggles. This way expectations and disappointments can be dealt with together with the help of a professional. You are likely juggling so many things from communicating with your spouse, a full-time job, social obligations with friends a family. All the while dealing with your own stress and anxiety when it comes to trying to conceive.

Having a counselor during this time can also be really beneficial in helping each person to be able to communicate what the process has been like for them. Since it is common for couples to experience the frustrations of infertility differently, a counselor can help give tools for better communication and help explain what has led each partner to experience what they are experiencing.
