How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can help with understanding yourself and others. Behavior is a form of communication. Your own behavior and the behaviors of others are constantly interacting to communicate to one another our needs, wants, challenges, etc. Psychotherapy can help with understanding what those needs, wants, challenges, etc. are and exploring effective ways to communicate them and cope with them.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

In psychotherapy, symptoms are described as behaviors, thoughts, or feelings. All of us experience at one time or another negative behaviors, thoughts, or feelings. This experience is different for everyone and everyone's symptoms are manifested in different ways. The individual has strengths and weaknesses that contribute to how these symptoms are manifested in the home or community and the amount of distress they cause. This information has been categorized to provide a platform for the symptoms and distress to be scientifically explained and treated.
