Individual, Family & Couples Therapy

Dr. Ellie Bolgar & Associates are trained in a variety of approaches:

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy
  • Dialectical Therapy
  • Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
  • Rational Emotive Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Existential
  • Psychodynamic

She is also competent in the use of specific therapeutic techniques like:

  • Hypnosis
  • Mindfulness Meditation
  • Neurofeedback

Dr. Bolgar utilizes an attachment focused psychology that is more than simply using techniques. It is an understanding to a way of perceiving life, correcting biases, repairing ruptures, and forming a profound connection to the self and others, which installs a greater sense of security.

Emotion plays a crucial role in organizing how we see the world. Cognitive and behavioral changes are difficult to achieve because they are incompatible with emotional states activated in various life situations. When people learn to interact directly with and shift their emotional states, then behaviors and cognitions change more easily.

Dr. Bolgar believes that people have the natural ability to heal under the right circumstances.
