What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is the general name for treatments designed to heal psychological problems by talking, practicing new behaviors, and activities. There are many schools of thought and various approaches to psychotherapy including CBT, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Family Systems, DBT, ACT, and many others.

Psychotherapy usually involves the client and therapist meeting for regularly scheduled sessions, during which they explore the client’s issues, the emotions and beliefs surrounding them, the origins of those beliefs, and the ways they are manifesting themselves in day-to-day life and current relationships; alternative views and options are often identified and tried out.

In most cases my approach is mindfulness-based, but I use many techniques from different treatment modalities depending on the need of my client.
