Psychotherapy is one of the recommended treatments for depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue, and other medical and mental illnesses. The term psychotherapy, abbreviated as “therapy,” actually includes a variety of treatments. During psychotherapy, patients talk with a licensed psychologist who helps them identify and process factors that may be causing their psychological and emotional problems.

Psychotherapy can help you to:

  • Understand the behaviors, emotions, and mindsets that contribute to mental, physical, and emotional distress
  • Understand and identify that which contributes to your mental, physical, and emotional uneasiness and which aspects you can resolve
  • Understand how faulty thinking may perpetuate your difficulty in experiencing a positive physical, emotional, and mental presence
  • Restructure ways of thinking, modify negative attributes and attitudes you have about yourself
  • Regain a sense of control and pleasure in your life
  • Learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills
