Psychotherapy (also referred to as “talk therapy” or just “therapy”) is a form of mental health treatment that is targeted toward relieving emotional distress and mental health difficulties. It can also be focused on learning skills to help us cope with difficult situations and help us to improve our social outcomes. Therapy is a confidential, safe, and non-judgmental place to process emotions and thoughts, gain insight and new skills, and focus on personal change and growth.

Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that can help address any number or combination of mental health conditions, including (but certainly not limited to) anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression, grief, loss, low self-esteem, OCD, phobias, relationship difficulties, seasonal affective disorders, social anxiety, stress, and trauma-related disorders.

Seeking mental health treatment does not mean that you are “crazy” or “flawed” as our society’s unfortunate stigma might suggest. Many people who seek psychotherapy are those who experience normal, everyday problems. Therapy is right for you if you are looking to relieve mental distress, learn coping skills, and further your personal growth.
