At PCH Treatment Center, psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a cornerstone in the treatment of most clients. However, we also incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy, intertwined with our approach to treatment and client care. Our professional staff is well versed in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, both as an independent modality and as a useful and productive part of our comprehensive program of evaluation and treatment. We take to heart the idea that treatment is often a collaborative partnership between therapist and patient. Overall, we never try not to narrow our options to a particular theory or school. Instead, we use the many effective tools at our disposal in the combination that will best help our patients to heal. The PCH clinical team assesses each client and develops a specific treatment plan, assigning specific therapists who may be focused on psychoanalytic therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy, depending on the needs of the clients.
