What is psychotherapy?

For all its beauty, love, and happiness, life can be challenging at times. Whether it is the death of a loved one, a troubling relationship, a personal illness, or any other life challenge, it can be extremely helpful to have a trained and experienced professional guide us through these stages, deepening our connection to ourselves and processing difficult emotions in a healthy manner.

Psychotherapy is a term that refers to the process of speaking with a mental health professional to be able to treat mental health problems and deal with life’s challenges. Psychotherapy can be helpful in a wide range of situations. Michael is a highly trained therapist with years of experience helping his patients deal with grief, loss, mental health challenges, and much more, providing expert feedback and guidance in those difficult times.

Who can benefit from psychotherapy?

Because psychotherapy is so general, it has been shown to be helpful in a wide range of situations. Individuals experiencing anxiety disorders, mood disorders, depression, anxiety, addiction, personality disorders, and eating disorders may all benefit from psychotherapy. In addition, psychotherapy can help those who are facing difficult life changes but may not necessarily have a mental health disorder.

Psychotherapy can help you deal with loss and grief, as with the death of a loved one, an illness, or a divorce. Psychotherapy has also been shown that it has the potential to help build healthy relationships or overcome challenges within a relationship, whether it be a romantic couple or a family. By helping you understand your emotions and formulate healthy responses and coping mechanisms, psychotherapy can have many wonderful benefits.

What should I expect at my appointment?

Your experience will vary depending on your reason for going to therapy. The first session is an opportunity for you and Michael to get to know each other to see if it will be a good fit. You will describe your situation and challenges, and discuss your goals and hopes for therapy. It may take several sessions for Michael to get a clear idea of your situation, and in general, psychotherapy takes some time to see the positive benefits.

During each session, you will discuss the situation further, providing an opportunity for you to gain a deeper understanding of your emotions and the challenges you face to be able to process these emotions in a healthy manner.
