What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is an important component of any well-rounded psychiatric treatment plan. During a session, you can talk about your troubling symptoms or any circumstances in your life that may be contributing to your mental status. 

Experienced, knowledgeable psychiatrists work closely with you during psychotherapy sessions to recognize and evaluate specific thought patterns. You also have the opportunity to learn coping skills for your emotions, strategies for changing behaviors, and ways of improving your function in day-to-day life. 

Therapy sessions at Innovative Psychiatry, LLC are typically 50 minutes long. Your sessions are completely private between yourself and a trained psychiatric professional that you can trust. 

With flexible scheduling options, you can book your psychotherapy sessions in the evenings or on Saturdays. Payment plans are also available to improve the accessibility of psychiatric care.

Who can benefit from psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is beneficial for a multitude of mental health disorders that affect your mood, thought patterns, and behaviors. Without the right care, these conditions can impact your productivity and relationships as well as your sleep, energy levels, and many other parts of your life. 

You might benefit from individualized psychotherapy at Innovative Psychiatry, LLC if you experience:

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

Your provider decides which approach to psychotherapy they should use based on several different factors, including your specific diagnosis, the severity of symptoms, and the level of impact your condition has on your life. 

What are some common types of psychotherapy?

Psychiatrists use several evidence-based techniques in psychotherapy that are applicable to many different conditions and individuals. You might need short-term therapy with just a few sessions or long-term therapy with regular sessions over the course of months or years. 

After a detailed evaluation, your provider might decide to use:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Psychoanalysis
  • Supportive therapy

Many of these strategies work especially well when combined with psychiatric medications, dedicated lifestyle changes, and alternative therapies like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
