Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a valuable tool in psychiatric care that involves talking through your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors with a trained professional’s guidance. Often, the objective of psychotherapy is to change or control these thoughts or behaviors, so you can function better in your daily life. It can also help you heal from trauma and increase general well-being.

Labyrinth Psychiatry Group offers both individual psychotherapy, where you visit one-on-one with a provider, and group psychotherapy, where you work with a provider and a small group of other people with similar mental or emotional health issues. 

Group therapy helps you and the other patients give each other support, and it can be especially helpful for cases involving depression and anxiety. 

Whichever type of psychotherapy Labyrinth Psychiatry Group recommends for you, the team likely also recommends other treatments within a comprehensive plan. They also offer medication management, neuromodulation services like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and esketamine. 

What can psychotherapy treat?

Psychotherapy treats a wide variety of mental health issues and emotional difficulties. The team at Labyrinth Psychiatry Group performs a thorough evaluation in order to diagnose you accurately before recommending psychotherapy of any kind. They may find that you meet the criteria for one or more of these conditions:

  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

It’s common to receive more than one mental health condition diagnosis, which is why an individualized treatment plan is essential for effective treatment. 

Which type of psychotherapy can benefit me?

There are a few different psychotherapeutic approaches, and the Labyrinth Psychiatry Group team makes a decision for you based on your circumstances and preferences. Your therapy provider might choose to use:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT is highly effective in helping you recognize thought patterns so you can better regulate the emotions and behaviors that arise from them. Dialectical behavior therapy, a form of CBT, specifically helps with emotional regulation to change harmful behaviors. 

Interpersonal therapy

Interpersonal therapy is a short-term therapy format that helps with social issues, like grief, relationship problems, and issues at work or home. With interpersonal therapy, you can learn better communication skills and emotional expression. 

Psychodynamic therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the influence of your childhood and subconscious thoughts over your present life. Your therapist works with you to improve your self-awareness and live in the present.
