Individual therapy

Also known as: Therapy, individual, Individual counseling, Psychotherapy

Counseling is professional guidance to help a person, family or group of individuals recognize and deal with issues that are interfering with their mental well-being. Counseling involves regular meetings (sessions) with a qualified counselor, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, licensed professional counselor or clinical social worker.

Counseling, which may also be called psychotherapy or therapy, can be done on an individual, family or group basis.

Our mental well-being is directly connected with our overall physical health. Experiences, such as stress or trauma, can leave us anxious, overwhelmed and hopeless. Untreated, these feelings can lead to major psychological and physical illnesses or to behaviors that can become addictive and destructive. Providence Behavioral Health approaches mental health and substance abuse conditions through a multidisciplinary program that focuses on the whole person -- physical, spiritual, psychological and social.
