Psychotherapy in Aldie

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that focuses on relieving emotional distress and mental health disorders. There are a variety of modalities a therapist can use when treating a patient. Some of these modalities include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), psychodynamic therapy, and more. Psychotherapy may include individual, couples, families and groups.

We treat psychological problems through communication and relationship factors between a patient and a trained mental health professional. Psychotherapy teaches you how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations by learning healthy coping skills. There are many types of psychotherapy, and the right type for you depends on your individual situation, preferences and needs.

Why is therapy performed?

Psychotherapy can be useful for treating many mental health disorders, including:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Panic disorder
  • Traumatic birth
  • Infant loss

What is medication management?

Medication management is a method of engaging with patients and caregivers to create a complete, accurate medication list, which is the foundation for addressing medication problems. It aims to ensure the health of individuals and manage their health care costs. Medication management can also result in less money being spent on emergency room visits and hospital stays, as well as reduced illnesses and deaths due to medication noncompliance or negative drug interactions.
