About

Views expressed by one therapist are not representative of the group as each therapist is practicing as an individual with their own unique treatment models and areas of specialty. To find out which therapist may be right for you, please visit our Therapist Listing.

What is Psychotherapy?

 

Psychotherapy is often simply referred to as therapy or counseling. It can also be defined as "a process in which a trained counselor helps an individual, group of individuals, or family members gain self-understanding and understanding of others in order to solve problems more effectively and resolve conflicts in everyday living.”1

 

 

 

 

 

Many people have also sought therapy to advance their personal or professional growth. With that in mind, perhaps the distinguishing characteristic of the therapy process is that it is a goal directed relationship between a professional therapist and one or more clients, in which they “work together to resolve a concern and/or foster the personal growth and development”2 of the client.
