Psychotherapy can help you become aware of harmful thinking patterns; and address self-defeating ways of thinking, fears, problems relating with others at home, at work or school. You can learn how to better cope with the challenges you face, deal with past traumas, and learn new ways to reduce stress and manage your relationships. Psychological treatments for adolescents with major depression are associated with remission within 28 weeks in 65-70% of patients.
Individual therapy can give you hope and with commitment and hard work you can experience growth and change. Working collaboratively with your Healthymynds psychologist you will come to understand your needs, fears, and negative thoughts and behaviors so you can become your best self. They will work with you to choose the best treatment plan for you based on your individual needs.
Psychotherapy for depression may include:
- Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) The focus of CBT is to help depressed patients identify and change distorted and negative thinking patterns. This will help you to respond to life’s challenges in a more positive way. CBT is short term evidence-based therapy.
- Family and couples therapy can be important to help you family or close relationships address issues and provide you with the support you need.
- Other specialized therapies such as interpersonal therapy may also be helpful.
- Mindfulness and relaxation techniques can be helpful as well.
Our psychologists can help you find relief from overwhelming feelings of anxiety and depression in a private, safe space.
Before beginning treatment one of our clinical psychologists will conduct a complimentary initial consultation with you. The goal of the initial consultation is to get a better understanding of you, your history with what brings you to therapy, and what your needs are in therapy. We feel the fit between client and psychologist is extremely important, and the consultation is a great start for you to get a feel for Healthymynds and if we are a fit for your needs. Our goal is to work with you in a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and work toward flourishing.
