What is Talk Therapy?
A more traditional approach to therapy, talk therapy is more than having someone listen while you discuss your feelings. Speaking with a licensed professional allows you to explore your thoughts and behaviors, better understand yourself, learn healthy coping mechanisms and communication tools, and solve problems that occur in daily life. It is used for the treatment of mental disorders, but also for improving overall well-being and mental health.
Our mental health affects how we act, think, feel, and respond to the world around us. It dictates how we relate to others, problem solve, and handle life’s stressors. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence, through adulthood. We are here to help through all transitions and stages of life!
