Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is one of the treatments mental health professionals use to help you understand your mental health condition. 

During therapy, you and your therapist talk about your condition and how it affects your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Then, you work with your therapist to develop skills that help you take control of your life and strategies that help you deal with difficult life situations and stressors. 

Dodini Behavioral Health takes an innovative and unique approach to psychotherapy, focusing on a long-term strategy for improving your mental and emotional well-being.

What are the types of psychotherapy?

Dodini Behavioral Health uses many forms of psychotherapy to meet a wide range of needs. The types of psychotherapy available include:

Individual psychotherapy

With individual psychotherapy you work one-on-one with your therapist, discussing your mental well-being and developing techniques to improve how you feel.

Couples and family counseling

Dodini Behavioral Health provides co-therapy for couples and family counseling. This type of psychotherapy allows you to work with your partner or family in a safe setting to address your issues and goals.

Group psychotherapy

Group psychotherapy is a professionally led group that includes people struggling with the same mental health issues as you. You work together, sharing experiences that may help you learn new ways of coping.

This type of psychotherapy also helps you feel less alone and gives you an opportunity to practice your social and communication skills. 

For most patients who participate in psychotherapy at Dodini Behavioral Health, individual counseling is the first step. Once you feel comfortable, you can start co-therapy or group counseling.

The therapists at Dodini Behavioral Health find that when you work with others you reach your goals and maintain lasting benefits.
