Psychotherapy and Counseling Services

When it comes to improving one’s mental and emotional health, we at Wellness Psychiatry are firm believers in the efficacy of psychotherapy. When it comes to your mental and emotional well-being, our team of committed specialists is here to back you up every step of the way.

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, often called talk therapy, counseling, or psychosocial therapy, is a tried-and-true method of navigating psychological and emotional distress. Talk therapy is a method of gaining insight into one’s inner world by discussing one’s feelings, thoughts, and actions with a skilled mental health professional. Psychotherapy’s main purpose is to help people become more self-aware, develop more adaptive ways of handling stressful situations, and give them the tools they need to take charge of their own lives.

Why Choose Psychotherapy?

Anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders, personality disorders, and other mental health issues can all be effectively treated with psychotherapy. At Wellness Psychiatry, we offer a welcoming place where you can do things like:

  • Learn more about the circumstances around your problems.
  • Discover how your ideas, feelings, and actions shape your disposition and actions.
  • Acquire useful strategies for dealing with stress and other difficulties.
  • Strengthen your bonds with those around you.
  • Develop yourself and gain control of your life.

Psychotherapy can help you live a happier and healthier life, whether you’ve been diagnosed with a mental health disorder or just need some extra help dealing with everyday stresses.

Types of Psychotherapy

There is no one set method for conducting psychotherapy; rather, it can take several shapes and sizes depending on the patient. The following are examples of common forms of psychotherapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT):

Focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and behaviors.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT):

Encourages acceptance of thoughts and emotions and commitment to personal values.

Narrative Therapy:

Assists people in rethinking and rewriting the narratives of their lives.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT):

Helps individuals manage intense emotions and develop effective coping skills.

Psychodynamic Therapy:

Examines the impact of one’s subconscious on one’s behavior.

Strengths-Based Therapy:

Determines where one excels and plays up those areas for development.

Our skilled counselors will consult with you to figure out the best course of action.

Duration and Results

The duration of psychotherapy sessions varies from patient to patient. While brief interventions may be sufficient for some problems, others will require more time and effort. Although psychotherapy is not a quick remedy, it can have long-term positive effects that enhance well-being.

How to Get the Most Out of Psychotherapy

To make the most of your therapy experience:

  • Get to know your therapist and build trust.
  • Participate actively in your treatment, viewing therapy as a collaborative effort.
  • Talk about how you really feel without holding back.
  • Stick to your treatment schedule and give yourself the best chance for recovery.
  • Have patience with yourself; developing healthier and more effective habits is a process.
  • Finish any reading or exercises prescribed by your counselor.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) -
Psychotherapy at Wellness Psychiatry

You’ve reached the Wellness Psychiatry frequently asked questions page for psychotherapy. We know you probably have some inquiries about psychotherapy and its potential benefits. Here are some frequently asked questions and their explanations:

What is psychotherapy, and how does it work?

Psychotherapy, or “talk therapy,” is having therapeutic sessions with a professional mental health counselor. Individuals get insight into their own minds, hearts, and actions through these discussions. Awareness of oneself, the cultivation of coping mechanisms, and the implementation of constructive lifestyle changes are all aided by therapy.

Is psychotherapy right for me?

People with a wide range of mental health concerns, as well as those who are just interested in expanding and bettering themselves, might gain from psychotherapy. Whether you’ve been diagnosed with a mental illness or are simply dealing with difficulties in life, therapy can be a helpful resource.

How do I choose the right type of psychotherapy?

It’s important to consider your own goals and interests while deciding on a therapy modality. Together, you and one of our seasoned therapists can figure out the best course of action. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), acceptance-and-commitment therapy (ACT), and others are all examples of popular forms of talk therapy. Your therapist will provide you all the information you need and will work with you to determine the best type of psychotherapy that will meet your needs.

How long does psychotherapy last?

Therapy sessions last as long as necessary to achieve your stated goals. While short-term therapy may be sufficient for some problems, others may need more extensive care. Your therapist will adapt their approach based on your individual needs, and you’ll both keep tabs on how you’re doing.

Is my privacy protected in psychotherapy?

In psychotherapy, client confidentiality is of the utmost importance. Your therapist will protect your privacy, except for emergency situations or where required by law. You can have faith in your therapist’s ability to provide you with a nonjudgmental environment in which to open yourself.

What can I expect during my first psychotherapy session?

The first appointment is an introduction between you and your therapist. You will share your worries, aspirations, and anticipations. You will go more deeply into your emotions and thoughts as sessions continue. Meetings are usually arranged once every week or every other week, and they last for 50 minutes.

what our clients say

I was extremely apprehensive on my first visit because I was in a very bad mental state. Amanda was very thorough, very friendly, and made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. As I recovered I looked forward to our visits but in the end we mutually decided that it was time for me to leave the nest and fly away. If I ever need her I can always call on her. There was something about the layout of the office, the furnishings, and the calming energy that always put me at ease. My first encounter with psychiatric counseling was definitely a positive experience and something that I'll cherish.
This practice has not only helped my mental health, but I have been treated in a way that is caring and thoughtful. I feel like I'm more than just the 10:30 client - there's a vested interest in my well being. Amanda Farrell is who I've been working with for a few years now and I highly recommend her! I also feel confident that anyone in the practice is trustworthy and reliable. Again, highly recommended!
Amanda is an absolute RARE find. My husband even agreed that she does….actually….. care about me and my health. I’m 50 and this might be the first time in my life that I’ve felt that my doctor/therapist really wants me to be happy and successful in life. Starting therapy when I was in my 20’s so there is a long list of docs/therapist that I’ve seen over the years. Highly recommend — especially if you’ve started feeling like you’re just another patient in the queue.
This is the best psychiatry practice I have been to. Everyone I have worked with has been empathetic and understanding. The office feels very warm and I feel very taken care of. I always know when I call or email, Riley will be super responsive to my needs. Highly recommend!
Amanda has been incredibly helpful. I'm much happier and more productive.
Wellness Psychiatry goes above and beyond. Everyone from admin to clinical staff. The team fosters warmth and are very attentive to your needs. Addressing mental health has felt overwhelming but this team makes it me feel comfortable and supported. Thanks!
