Individual Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a general term for a way of treating mental and emotional disorders by talking about your condition and related issues with a mental health professional. It's also known as talk therapy, counseling, psychosocial therapy or, simply, therapy.

Psychotherapy is an active collaboration between therapist and client. The process isn't always easy, however people willing to work in close partnership with their therapist often find relief from their emotional distress and begin to lead more productive and fulfilling lives.


Psychotherapy is helpful with significant life changes, decisions that need to be made and difficulties at home or work. Talk therapy is also helpful for serious problems that interfere with day-to-day life, such as physical or mental illness. Therapy can help depression, anxiety disorders and other emotional difficulties, either alone or in combination with medication.
