Discover the Power of Talk Therapy
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, can play a critical role in treating many emotional and mental health conditions. Through a non-judgmental therapeutic relationship between a therapist and a person in therapy, specific goals identified in therapy can inspire, change or improve one’s quality of life. People seek therapy to help for a variety of issues that can be hard to face alone.
Therapy can help people overcome obstacles that hinder their well-being by increasing positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. Therapy can also be used to learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching personal goals. Therapy can provide strategies for changing unwanted thoughts and behaviors and equip people with the skills to manage symptoms, reduce stress and, overall, improve their quality of life.
Types of Individual Therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
- Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)
- Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
- Psychodynamic therapy
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Though cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most popular and effective types of therapy, our therapists utilize a number of evidence-based treatments. The goal with CBT is to help the client identify the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in order to replace negative thinking patterns with positive ones. Not only does this exploratory process help a person understand subtle and often unnoticed emotions, but it also equips them in managing strong and often uncomfortable feelings more effectively. With CBT, clients are offered an opportunity to safely explore and broaden the range of feelings with which they are comfortable.
