Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a type of talk therapy that helps you learn more about your feelings, thoughts, moods, and behaviors.

The Ocean Psychiatry providers offer psychotherapy sessions in-office or through online telemedicine visits. They help you build your coping skills so that you can overcome negative thought patterns and emotions, allowing you to better manage your mental and emotional health.

The mental health specialists also offer cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a type of psychotherapy that helps you learn more about negative belief patterns you have, so you can replace them with more positive and healthy beliefs.

Psychotherapy isn’t a cure for mental health issues or stress. However, it can be a highly effective tool that helps you cope with your circumstances, so you can enjoy a higher quality of life.

When should I consider psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is beneficial for anyone who feels stuck or overwhelmed by life’s challenges. Ocean Psychiatry offers psychotherapy services for adults and children individually, as couples, or as family.

You may benefit from psychotherapy in conjunction with medication as part of your treatment plan for mental health disorders like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse and other addictions

Psychotherapy can also be an effective part of a stress reduction plan and can help you address major life changes, insomnia, and anger issues.

What happens during psychotherapy?

During your initial psychotherapy session, the Ocean Psychiatry providers spend time learning about you, your health, relationships, and lifestyle.

Throughout your psychotherapy sessions, your therapist guides you through the discussion of your thoughts and feelings and offers support when any intense emotions come to the surface. They provide a judgment-free, confidential space for you to speak openly and honestly about your feelings.

The providers may recommend practices that you do at home to help you change how you think about yourself and how you cope with life stressors.

Psychotherapy sessions typically last an hour, and the therapists determine how often you should schedule sessions based on your unique situation. You may need therapy for only a short time or may find it beneficial to meet with your therapist for longer.
