All About Therapy

According to the American Psychological Association, “Psychologists help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives.” Through the use of various psychotherapy methods and collaborative treatment measures, our clients develop life-changing habits to help them cope with any of life’s various obstacles.

The Difference Between Counseling and Psychotherapy

Counseling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably but really mean different things. Counseling is guidance that helps you to rethink your problems in a different light.  Counseling addresses beliefs that keep us stuck. Psychotherapy literally heals your soul.

 

Services We Offer

Whether you’re an individual, a couple or a family looking for help - my therapy sessions are designed to strengthen your confidence, and assist you in the healing process. Take a look at the services we offer, and get in touch with me today.

As therapists, we do not limit ourselves to one specific approach to therapy. Instead, we blend different approaches and types to best deal with your need. In doing so, our therapists have access to use many powerful tools for your therapeutic care. We approach your therapeutic care from a solution-focused realistic perspective.


Some of the well-known psychotherapy approaches include:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) uses a combination of both cognitive and behavioral therapy. CBT explores both thinking patterns and harmful or self-destructive behaviors that might accompany them. The therapy then combines changing the thinking patterns along with changing the behavior.


Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

The theory behind psychodynamic psychotherapy is that our past – adverse childhood experiences or other unconscious conflicts – is the basis for problems that persist into adulthood, such as unusually low self-esteem, anxiety, or a feeling of being incomplete. This type of therapy is more long term.

 

Interpersonal Psychotherapy. Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is a short-term, structured approach based on the view that our current problems are maladaptive behaviors rooted in our previous interpersonal relationships.


Family Therapy

Family therapy involves treating more than one member of the family at the same time to help the family resolve conflicts and improve interaction. It is often based on the premise that families are a system. If one role in the family changes, all are affected and need to change their behaviors as well.


Group Therapy

Group therapy is facilitated by a professional therapist and involves a group of peers working on the same problem, such as anxiety, depression or substance abuse, for example. Group therapy can be a valuable place to practice social dynamics in a safe environment and get inspiration and ideas from peers who are struggling with the same issues.


Relationship Therapy

Relationship therapy involves working with two people in a committed relationship. People go to relationship therapy to learn how to work through their differences, communicate better and problem-solve challenges in the relationship.
