What is Experiential Therapy?Most traditional settings of treatment take place outside of real world environments. The therapy itself becomes the focus and can at times actually create barriers to growth. Experiential Therapy is a combination of therapeutic methods or techniques that involves a wide range of activities designed to practice new behaviors, and engage the subconscious during the recovery process.
Coastline Behavioral Health uses elements of nature, physical exertion, relaxation, and cognitive processing to explore underlying negative perceptions, repressed emotions, and unresolved trauma that have produced maladaptive coping mechanisms and barriers to a successful recovery.
Experiential therapy assists the client to get outside of oneself and focus on the present and address what arises from the inside naturally. This approach is very effective for those who have a difficult time addressing problem areas of life in a traditional talk therapy environment. Some of the greatest benefits of experiential therapy is that it heals the mind, body, and soul all at the same time. It improves on feelings of wellbeing and instills confidence while developing social skills and mutual respect. Clients at Coastline seem to thrive in this environment and have the ability to break though walls that they have not been able to with previous treatment experiences.
Experiential has shown to have a successful positive impact on those who have depression, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, self esteem, substance abuse, and many more issues.

Family members and significant others will also be informed on how to contact Al-Anon, Coda, ACA and/or other family therapists as referrals.
