Psychotherapy is not like a medical doctor visit. Instead, it calls for a very active effort on your part. In order for the therapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things we talk about both 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. But there are no guarantees of what you will experience.
Psychotherapy includes a variety of interventions; Talk Therapy, Play Therapy, Art/Creative Process, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brain Spotting, Couples Counseling, Family and Individual Therapy (ages 4 & up)
