Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that requires an in-depth assessment process in order to identify symptoms, patterns of behavior, interpersonal struggles, conflicts in relationships, etc. This information is used to formulate a diagnosis, which helps to establish a treatment plan.
Psychotherapy often requires exploring your past and resolving issues that have impacted your psychological development.
Psychotherapy can be a long-term process that can, at times, be very challenging as you attempt to heal the underlying wounds that are causing or exacerbating your symptoms.
Sessions are generally done face to face in a professional office.
