What is Therapy?
Therapy, psychotherapy, talk therapy…whatever you want to call it, therapy is a common treatment option for those living with mental health problems. Sometimes therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with medications to help patients better manage symptoms and behaviors of mental disorders including,
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorders
- Substance abuse and addictions
- Personality disorder
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Why is Therapy Beneficial?
During therapy, our counselors identify your concerns and problems and provide insight and strategies to improve your outlook, behaviors, coping mechanisms, and habits. Even if you aren’t dealing with a mental disorder, therapy can be a great way to better understand your emotions and behaviors and to find a therapeutic and supportive outlet to express your feelings, particularly in light of important life events, whether it’s bullying, graduating from college, the loss of a loved one, or divorce.
