Psychotherapy, also known as individual therapy or talk therapy, is the process of meeting one- on-one with a provider to address different struggles. It aims to help with managing mental illnesses and improving emotional wellness. Although there is a wide range of approaches that exist, the ultimate goal of all treatments and therapies is to help the client reach their goals and improve quality of life. By working intimately with each client and applying their vast experience, our therapists are able to honor and assist the needs of each unique individual.
Many individuals find talking one-on-one during therapy sessions very beneficial and helpful to their mental health. Research has shown amazing improvement in people who have received psychotherapy. It has been found to have helped them reduce their symptoms as well as perform functions in their life with greater ease. Psychotherapy has also been shown to improve your work-life with fewer sick days, fewer medical problems, and increased work satisfaction.
Overcoming mental obstacles with psychotherapy can improve positive feelings, self-esteem, and overall positive outlook on life. An individual can truly benefit from psychotherapy so long as they have an open and honest mindset.
Psychotherapy can treat several different mental, physical or emotional issues such as:
Often, the first session with your therapist is all about gathering information. They might ask about past physical, mental, and or emotional health and wellness. The first session is also a good chance for you to decide whether or not you feel comfortable talking to your therapist. Since one of the foundations to a successful treatment is the patient/therapist relationship, we know how important it is to be paired with the right therapist. Our therapists put a high value on emotional security and trust in these relationships so the work of treatment can occur in a supportive environment.
As previously mentioned, individual therapy can treat a number of different mental, physical and emotional issues. The way individual therapy is conducted varies heavily on what the individual is being treated for and what the issues at hand are. When going into a therapy session, an individual can expect a welcoming environment. Remember that psychotherapy is meant to help relieve problems you are going through to improve quality of life.
Things to expect to discuss during your one-on-one session could include:
There are many forms of psychotherapy. Ultimately, the type of individual therapy you receive all depends on what you are personally dealing with.

There is no shame or harm to seek out therapy to help with mental health issues. It might be time to look for individual therapy when there is an issue in your life that is causing distress or feelings that interfere with your life. We work with patients to explore and address issues at home and at work, including behavioral patterns, mood and anxiety, relationships, addiction, and self-exploration. This could include negative thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and even physical sensations that might make you feel fatigued.
