Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy has both benefits and risks. Risks sometimes include experiencing uncomfortable feelings, such as sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness. Psychotherapy often requires discussing unpleasant aspects of your life. However, psychotherapy has been shown to have benefits for individuals who undertake it.

Therapy often leads to a significant reduction in feelings of distress, increased satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, greater personal awareness and insight, increased skills for managing stress, and resolutions to specific problems. But, there are no guarantees about what will happen.

Psychotherapy requires a very active effort on your part. To be most successful, you will have to work on things that we discuss outside of sessions.

Therapists utilize a variety of approaches depending on your needs. Some of these approaches include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral
  • Solution Focused
  • Bowen
  • Psychoanalytic
  • Play Therapy
  • Filial Therapy
  • Behavior Modification
  • Structural, Strategic
  • Psychoeducational
