During psychotherapy the goal is to help clients recognize problematic thinking and behaviors, develop effective coping strategies, improve functioning, lessen emotional distress, and resolve symptoms. When participating in psychotherapy there may be times of discomfort, resistance, and uncertainty; this is a part of the therapeutic process. Psychotherapy is different from normal social interaction in that open communication and discussion of difficult, even embarrassing material is encouraged and necessary for growth. Challenging the thoughts, behaviors, and relationship patterns that create and maintain the difficulties that led to the need for treatment is essential for the best outcome possible. Following the initial evaluation, recommendations or a treatment plan are offered. If there is need for further evaluation you may be referred to additional treatment providers.
