PsychotherapyPsychotherapy or Counseling is a professional relationship that focuses on personal problems. The counseling relationship differs from both relationships and social friendships. Unlike friends, counselors are able to be objective; they serve as skilled listeners who help you to clarify issues, discover your true wishes and feelings, and deal effectively with problems.

Choice Psychiatry Medical Group (SPMG) offers state of the art, empirically-supported mental health treatments. Our goal is to help individuals develop skills to improve functioning, mood, and quality of life and to better cope with life circumstances.

What kind of problem is appropriate to discuss with a therapist? Anything that troubles you. Here is a partial list of common concerns:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Alcohol or drugs
  • Eating concerns
  • Academic Anxieties
  • Friendship problems

Length of therapy varies. Some problems lend themselves to a one or two session consultation. Others require a series of appointments, the length to be decided by you and your therapist. If you need longer than short-term counseling, your therapist will discuss with you and set up a treatment goal.
