Treatment

Within a psychotherapeutic relationship, treatment explores how a person thinks, acts, and feels so they can better understand themselves and make desired changes in their lives.

Many individuals facing the pressures of life require professional help. Approximately one third of adults experience an emotional or substance abuse problem, and 25 percent of adults suffer at some point from anxiety or depression.

Research indicates that most people who have at least several sessions of psychotherapy are far better off than are those untreated.

One study showed that 50 percent of individuals in therapy noticeably improved after eight sessions, and 75 percent improved by the end of six months.
