Evidence-Based Practice

Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) combines clinical research, the therapist’s expertise, and the client’s personal preferences and values to ensure the most effective therapeutic interventions.  

At C.R.E.A.T.E. Outcomes, we believe each client deserves an individualized treatment approach, as one size never fits all. We ensure an evidence based practice by collaborating with you to understand your background, the difficulties you’re facing, and the best therapeutic approach to meet your needs. We are trained in a variety of well-researched therapy approaches. To learn more about the therapeutic approaches we offer, see below:  


Part Identification and Integration

This integrative approach, conceptualized by Dr. Cole and Dr. Narayan, is based upon Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral theory. It uses techniques that allow clients to deeply understand the complexities of their minds, as well as make modalities like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) more meaningful and user-friendly to shift thinking and improve overall functioning.

To put it simply, all of us have many parts to who we are. Understanding where a part came from and whether that part is hurting or helping us allows us to live more in alignment with the life we truly want. To learn more about our therapy approach, please see the articles in the next section.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This therapy is based on the belief that our past experiences greatly impact our current experiences and relationships. The focus of this modality is to help you gain insight into your inner world. This process helps you become aware of patterns that occur in your behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and relationships. Learn more here. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

This treatment approach sees the problems people experience as based on negative ways of thinking and learned patterns of unhelpful behavior. One way to find relief from day-to-day problems is to increase coping by shifting these thinking and behavior patterns. In order to do this, there are a number of well-researched strategies that your therapist will use to help you recognize when you fall into old patterns and examine whether those thoughts and behaviors are helpful. This therapy targets problems occurring in the here and now. Learn more here.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)

A psychotherapy approach that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are a result of disturbing life experiences. This approach is designed to support your brains own healing mechanisms. EMDR is a powerful therapeutic approach that allows people to heal the symptoms and emotional distress that result from a disturbing life experience.  Learn more here. 

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

This form of therapy focuses on improving the dynamics in your romantic relationship. Your therapist will then help you develop trust and guide the relationship in a positive direction by examining and changing unhealthy patterns. Learn more here. 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

This therapy combines CBT techniques with mindfulness strategies as a way to help you understand and manage your thoughts and feelings in times of distress. With this approach, you learn how to interrupt the automatic negative spiral that occurs. Your therapist helps you develop a sense of separation between your mood and thoughts. Learn more here.  

Play Therapy

This modality honors your child’s unique developmental level and looks for ways of helping in the “language” of the child – play! Therapeutic play takes place in a safe, comfortable playroom, and encourages free expression. By observing your child’s choices, decisions, and play style, the therapist will have an understanding of how to support your child’s needs. Children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new and positive problem solving skills. Learn more here. 

Sand Tray Therapy

This is a form of expressive therapy that allows people (children, adults, and families) to construct a scene using miniature toy figures and sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of your own life and allows you the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self. Your therapist will work closely with you to use the sand tray as a tool for you to share deep thoughts and feelings in a way that can be more expansive than words alone. Learn more here. 


In this therapy, the therapist utilizes progressive relaxation, guided visualization and verbal repetition to induce a hypnotic state in which the client attains a sense of deep relaxation. This enables the therapist to guide the client to the feelings and thoughts that are blocking them from creating change in their lives. After creating a trusting and safe environment, the therapist begins a gradual “induction” experience into the memories, feelings and somatic clues left behind, searching for their origins in order to release and transform them. Learn more here.
