Therapists at Alpine Academy are encouraged and supported in seeking certification from leading sources in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities. The administrative team is committed to this approach as they feel it is the most effective way to provide quality treatment to students.
Alpine Academy does not subscribe to the notion that any particular therapeutic modality has the ability to reach every student every time. For this reason, all of the therapists at Alpine Academy receive training and certification in several modalities, including DBT, EMDR, and the EAGALA model for equine assisted psychotherapy. With these modalities as a starting point for their tool box, the therapists are then encouraged to seek further training and certification in areas of personal interest. Some of these include ACT, Neurofeedback, Sandplay, and Motivational Interviewing.
Having so many options empowers therapists to recognize what each student responds best to and employ that method to help the student gain the necessary insight and skills to move forward in life and their relationships.
