What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a way to help individuals, partners, families, children and youth with a broad range of mental and emotional wellness challenges. It can assist in eliminating or controlling unmanageable symptoms so an individual can increase their overall functioning and well-being.

Psychotherapy helps with the impact of trauma, medical illness, death, coping with the challenges associated with daily life; and specific mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression.

Our Psychotherapy services can help not only alleviate symptoms, but also, certain types of psychotherapies can help identify the psychological root causes of one’s condition so a person can function better and have enhanced emotional and mental wellness.

During psychotherapy, you learn about your specific issues
and how your thoughts, emotions and behaviors affect your moods. Talk therapy helps you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.
