Therapy Q&A

What is therapy?

Therapy is a key treatment for people facing a difficult life challenge or mental health disorder. During therapy, you talk with a highly skilled therapist who guides the conversation, encouraging you to discuss your experiences, feelings, and thoughts.

Therapy can help you achieve many goals, from identifying and changing negative thoughts and improving self-esteem, to navigating life transitions and managing a mental illness. Your therapist recommends the best therapeutic technique for improving your mental well-being.

When would I need therapy?

Though it has a crucial role in treating mental health disorders, talk therapy supports you through many challenges. Therapy can help you cope with grief, make decisions related to life transitions, and improve your communication or social skills.

Couples often seek therapy when they can’t resolve their disagreements, and parents benefit from therapy when their children have emotional or behavioral problems. Children and teens often need therapy for developmental disorders, depression, anxiety, and learning to manage strong emotions.

Therapy (with or without medication) is nearly always used to treat:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Tic disorders (Tourette’s disorder)
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
  • Conduct disorder
  • Psychosis
  • Grief

Therapy can improve your mental health, whether you struggle with a serious mental health disorder or need guidance through a phase of life.
