About

Therapy is a way out of feeling helpless & hopeless. At The Insight Clinic our priority is getting you results. We focus on building a genuine, empathetic, & positive relationship with you that will bring out your strengths and move you to a better place. Whether for you or a loved one, seeking help to improve your relationships, emotional regulation, & quality of life can be daunting. It's normal to feel doubt. We use a non-judgemental approach that considers the influence of traumatic memories on current issues. This will shed light onto solutions you haven’t seen before.
We use evidence-based treatments and interventions that help the mind and the brain: such as CBT and neurofeedback. Together we will dive deep into self-knowledge and develop self-love. You will be able to overcome the fears, traumatic events, or family crisis that has perhaps left you feeling helpless and hopeless.
You are stronger than you know. You just need support and guidance you may not have had before. If you are tired of trying to heal on your own, it’s time to come in and get some help. Let's talk, and together we will come up with a plan to make a positive change.

Vielka Almanzar's Groups

Online DBT Skills Training for ages 16+

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a well researched, evidence-based treatment originally designed for Borderline Personality Disorder. This therapy blends Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), focusing on our thoughts and actions, and Zen Buddhism which focuses on becoming a mindful observer of one’s experiences. This program can be an excellent addition to your current therapy or as done as a self-help program. It's a 24 week long program focused on teaching these 4 modules: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness & Distress Tolerance Online Classes run in repeated cycles, so you can start at different times of the year.
