Helping adjust to a new lifestyle
Oasis Counseling offers a wide array of therapy and counseling services including specialty services that are designed to better assist our patients with their mental health and general wellbeing needs.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
MBCT is designed to help people who suffer from repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. The heart of this work lies in becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship to them.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. This type of therapy is an eight-phase treatment. Eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation) are used during one part of the session which help the clinician activate the “healing” parts of the patient’s brain. (definition source: www.emdr.com)
Court Ordered Evaluation & Treatment
In compliance with Nevada state law, a court can rule in favor of a request that an individual be assessed and receive treatment for an alleged mental illness. Failure to participate in programs or assist in the carrying out of treatment can result in the state requiring a peace officer to take the person into custody and deliver them to a location with a team who can properly complete an evaluation of the individual.
