Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. It provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral, nonjudgmental and involves closely looking at yourself, your situation and others around you. You and your psychologist will work together to develop awareness and understanding as well as identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some have felt anxious or depressed for a long time, while others may have short term problems that they need support with. Some common reasons people seek help are: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger, stress at home/work, past trauma/abuse, relationship issues, and/or life transitions.
