Psychotherapy is a treatment for a wide variety of emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, work difficulties, troubled relationships, sexual concerns, and issues of self-esteem. It is based on the belief that individuals are often unaware of factors that determine their emotions and behavior. These unconscious factors can sometimes express themselves in the form of specific symptoms or more general emotional distress. Psychotherapeutic treatment is a partnership focused on helping each patient become aware of the underlying sources of his or her difficulties, not just intellectually, but emotionally, in ways that lead to deep and lasting changes in the person’s life. A consultation can help determine whether psychotherapy is the appropriate treatment for you.
