What is Psychotherapy?

 

 Psychotherapy is not easily described in general statements. It varies depending on the personalities of the psychotherapist and client, and the particular issues you bring forward. There are many different methods I may use to deal with the problems that you hope to address. Psychotherapy is not like a medical doctor visit. Instead it calls for a very active effort on your part. In order for therapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions and at home.

 

Psychotherapy can have benefits and risks. Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness. On the other hand, psychotherapy has also been shown to have benefits for people who go through it. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress.
