Psychotherapy is another term for talk therapy, which is a method of helping you explore and improve your mental health. It can help you reduce or eliminate mental health symptoms. You also learn coping strategies and techniques to change your behavioral responses.
Dr. Cole has many years of clinical experience in providing psychotherapy. He specializes in existential and relational approaches and also has experience with humanistic, experiential, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral approaches.
Dr. Cole provides customized psychotherapy services to help you cope with a wide range of issues, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Personality disorders
- Schizophrenia and psychosis
- Relationship and communication issues
Psychotherapy is an extremely personalized approach to mental health care. Over time, you and Dr. Cole develop a professional and trusting relationship, creating a safe environment for you to explore and express your emotions and thoughts without fear of judgment or reprisal.
What should I expect during psychotherapy?
Most psychotherapy sessions last 45-60 minutes. The frequency of your appointments depends on your needs. Many patients begin with weekly appointments and then taper down to less frequent meetings as they work through their condition, and their mental health improves.
Dr. Cole tailors each session to meet your needs. While you have a conversation at every appointment, Dr. Cole might implement different approaches or exercises during your sessions. He might also assign you “homework” or exercises to practice at home between appointments to help you adjust your habits and behaviors.
Everything you talk about in your psychotherapy sessions is confidential.
What are the benefits of psychotherapy?
First and foremost, psychotherapy provides a safe and confidential environment for you to explore and talk about your thoughts and emotions. Unlike your family and friends, Dr. Cole doesn’t have an emotional attachment to you or have any expectations about how you’re “supposed to be.” As a result, you don’t have to censor yourself and can talk freely.
Additionally, Dr. Cole has training and experience to ask the right questions and lead you through exercises to help you think about your life, experiences, and feelings differently. You can also learn and practice new behaviors and habits to enhance your overall wellness while adjusting the way you respond to your mental health symptoms.
Psychotherapy can help you develop the tools you need to change your life and thrive.
