Psychotherapy and Counseling


Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” may be offered in addition to medication. In other cases, psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment option. Psychotherapy helps a person identify and challenge troubling emotions and/or behaviors. There are many reasons a person may seek psychotherapy, ranging from depression and anxiety, to difficulties in creating and sustaining stable relationships with others, to fear of expressing themselves authentically.  

Sometimes a particular experience such as the loss of a loved one, separation, a stressful family situation, or a milestone such as marrying or becoming a parent, may precipitate a decision to seek therapy. Others may find themselves with a long-standing sense of feeling lost, a lack of interest in activities, and disengagement from others. While the reasons for seeking therapy and the benefits vary vastly from person to person, most individuals share a desire for a more satisfying experience of their lives.
