Our Philosophy

We treat everyone like family because we know that each person is more than just what is at the forefront. We believe that everyone has strengths to uncover and strengths to enhance. We think of therapy as a practice. We practice our skills and tools every day to experience a better quality of life much like exercise.

 

Healing happens in a healthy environment within a healthy relationship. We create that here at Blanco Behavioral Health because we believe that when you find the best version of yourself the world benefits. 

 

We believe in duality. Our challenges have the potential to teach us about ourselves and what we can handle. Our defense mechanisms protect us but can also hurt us when we no longer need them to keep us safe in the same ways as we once did. We use interventions such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Community Resiliency Model (CRM) to:

 

  1. Identify where the core injuries happened in the past

  2. The triggers that are associated with our past Trauma

  3. The duality in our responses (what serves us, what does not)

  4. Grieving our losses

  5. Celebrating our strengths

  6. Maintaining our wins!

 

We specialize in resiliency-informed care and believe that with the right environment and support from a healthy community of peers we can see a radical change in our self-efficacy and how we view ourselves in the context of our environment.
