Treatment Modalities

Throughout each session, I incorporate best practices from a number of evidence-based modalities as a means to support you in maximizing your fullest potential. As therapy is not a one-size fits all, I take a mix-and-match approach to ensure that your process is individual to you.  

What does this mean?

Different types of treatment modalities



Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy involves talking and bilateral stimulation, typically eye movements. The aim is to reduce distress and negative beliefs associated with past overwhelming or traumatic experiences. 



Brainspotting is primarily used in trauma therapy and for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as it aims to help individuals both reprocess negative events and retrain emotional reactions. During brainspotting sessions, therapists help people position their eyes in ways that enable them to target sources of negative emotion. This process supports individuals in accessing emotions on a deeper level and targeting the physical effects of trauma, which activates the body’s innate ability to heal itself. 


Safe & Sound Protocol

The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an evidence-based listening therapy designed to reduce sound sensitivities and improve auditory processing, behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors through filtered music.

As a practical application of Polyvagal Theory, the SSP acts as a non-invasive, acoustic vagal nerve stimulator, helping to re-tune the nervous system to better support connection, collaboration, and resilience.

The SSP involves listening to specially filtered music through headphones alongside a provider, in-person or remotely. Suitable for children and adults, the SSP has demonstrated benefits for individuals with trauma, anxiety, sensory processing differences, and more.




DBT is useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm and substance use. DBT’s ultimate goal is to help you live a life you feel good about. While a meaningful, fulfilling life looks different for each person, we work together to reach the goals of each stage in your progress towards having a life that you experience as worth living. 

CBT focuses on patterns of thinking and the beliefs, attitudes, and values that underlie thinking. CBT equips you with the tools to solve your problems, focusing on the present rather than the past. 


Internal Family Systems/Parts Work

We all have several parts living within us that fulfill both healthy and unhealthy roles. Life events or trauma, however, can force us out of those healthy roles into unhealthy, or otherwise extreme roles. Fortunately, these internal roles are not static and can change with time and work. The goal of IFS therapy is to find your self and bring all of these parts together both in therapy and outside of therapy. 


Parent-Child Interaction Therapy

PCIT is for children with hyperactivity, impulsivity, inattention, aggression and/or defiance. Caregivers participate in 100% of PCIT sessions. At Healing with Deepa, the minimum length of time required to complete PCIT is 6 months of weekly appointments.
