What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is an umbrella term that includes all types of talk therapy that focus on helping you identify and explore your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

As a marriage and family therapist, Dr. Mann works with children, teens, and adults. She begins your therapy by identifying each person’s or family’s goals and defining the problems they want to address. Then you can move forward, using psychotherapy to learn ways to make positive changes that support your well-being.

What mental health problems can benefit from psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy gives you the tools you need to cope with the specific problems in your life. Since therapy is always designed to meet your needs, it can help no matter what challenge you face.

Dr. Mann works with diverse issues, such as needing to learn the skills to parent a child with autism or discovering why you can’t sustain a healthy relationship. She treats many mental health problems and life challenges, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • Tech addiction
  • Grief and loss
  • Parenting challenges
  • Low self-esteem

Patients often schedule psychotherapy when they’re going through a stressful life event, such as divorce, or when they’re affected by a medical illness.

Dr. Mann also offers therapy to those who have endured trauma, whether it was a life-threatening accident, a natural disaster, rape, or any other type of trauma. You’ll experience unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, and physical symptoms following a trauma and Dr. Mann can help you manage the intense emotional fallout.

What are the different types of psychotherapy?

Dr. Mann has extensive experience using many types of psychotherapy. Each one takes a different approach, and one or more types may work better for a specific person or individual personality. She helps you determine which kind of psychotherapy suits you and your goals.

These are only a few examples of different therapeutic approaches:

  • Trauma-focused therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Relational therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Parent-child interaction therapy

Whether you prefer individual therapy, would like to come in as a couple, or have your entire family work with Dr. Mann, you’ll get the support you need to explore your past experiences, thoughts, and feelings, and find a solution that improves your life.
