Known as talk therapy, creates a safe and open environment where individuals can freely discuss their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with a supportive and non-judgmental professional. Through psychotherapy, individuals can identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be impacting their mental wellness. Psychotherapy has been proven to be effective for a wide range of mental health issues, including clinical conditions such as depression and anxiety, as well as normal life transitions and stressors. There are many different styles of psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioral, psychoanalytic, and supportive approaches. However, we use a holistic approach that combines elements from several different approaches to meet the specific needs of each client. By working together with our practitioner, individuals can achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and develop the tools they need to improve their mental health and overall wellbeing.
“When you start psychotherapy, you might have your own goals or express what’s on your mind; we will help you set those goals. Setting goals might make psychotherapy feel more effective for you. You can often revise them and reflect on how far you’ve come since you started. Ideally, the goals you set for therapy should be measurement-based, so they allow you and I to monitor your progress.”
