- Personality disorders
Psychotherapy can also help if you’re going through something that’s having a major impact on your mental health, such as a death, trauma, a crisis of faith, or a work dilemma.
What skills can psychotherapy help me with?
Psychotherapy may be provided independently from medication management for your mental health concerns or in conjunction with it. Psychotherapy helps you develop healthy coping skills, so you don’t rely on unhealthy strategies, such as drugs, obsessions, or angry outbursts, to deal with difficult life events.
Specific skills that psychotherapy helps with include:
- Conflict resolution
- Anxiety and stress management
- Coping with change, such as divorce or job loss
- Developing healthy reactions instead of road rage, passive aggressiveness, or violence
Psychotherapy may also help you come to terms with a serious health problem, recover from sexual or physical abuse, and cope with sexual problems.
What should I expect during psychotherapy?
Dr. Vansiea is a specialist in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This helps you identify your negative, unhealthy beliefs and understand how they influence your behavior. She then helps you replace the negative habits and thought patterns with healthier ones.
At sessions, you’ll be encouraged to talk about your feelings and thoughts. At first, it may be hard to open up completely, but, with time, you built a rapport with Dr. Vansiea and feel more at ease. Crying, anger, and feelings of despair are normal during a psychotherapy session. Dr. Vansiea is ready to help you cope with these feelings and emotions in a soothing, compassionate environment.
