What is Therapy about?
Psychotherapy is a process by which you examine your thoughts, feelings, actions and relationships within the safety of a therapeutic relationship with a licensed therapist. Therapy is a process you can utilize whenever you feel the need for assistance.

In therapy, you will be given the opportunity to jointly evaluate with a professional where problems exist, or where changes are likely to improve your life satisfaction and overall psychological adjustment.

You may then learn how to make the changes you choose to make that are necessary to achieve a better life adjustment and live a more contented and satisfying life. In the State of Florida, all your communications with your therapist, as well as psychological records are confidential and may not be disclosed to any person or entity without your specific consent. All records maintained for at least seven years before they may be destroyed.

What does Psychotherapy Involve?
(1) Guided self-assessment to identify life adjustment problems, personal conflicts, relationship issues, behavioral problems, family conflicts, self-identity issues, emotional problems, and/or life stage development issues that are interfering with overall life adjustment, emotional well-being, and life satisfaction.

(2) Development of a plan for change to resolve these problems and/or issues, including both personal psychological changes and situational life changes.

(3) Assistance in making the necessary changes, through coaching, psychological education, ongoing behavioral and emotional analysis and feedback, emotional support, behavioral and cognitive training, and assistance in reformulating life goals and plans in order to help you to achieve those goals.

Therapy may be beneficial if:

  1. You feel overwhelmed by life problems and need assistance with problem solving.
  2. Depression, anxiety, stress or anger are taking over your life.

  9. You need support and direction through a challenging life situation.
  10. You don't know what to do, or where to turn for help.
  11. You have little or no support from family and/or friends.
