How can I tell if I need psychotherapy or counseling?
top of page
If you are feeling tired, depressed, ill-tempered or anxious about parts of your life, you will probably benefit from therapy. If your fear, anxiety or addictions are interfering with your life, it is likely you need therapy. Other indicators include trouble sleeping or eating. If you have the desire to hurt yourself, or are engaging in some type of self-harm, you need therapy as soon as possible. Art Therapy same costs as regular therapy.

 

Does it matter what type of therapist I go to?
top of page
Research shows that it is not the theoretical orientation of the therapist that matters as much as the warmth and the quality of the patient-therapist relationship in terms of patient and therapy outcome. Your best bet is to find a therapist you like, and can personally relate to and find a connection with. I tend to draw from a variety of types of therapy in my practice, depending on the patient and their needs, including art therapy and psychoanalytic therapy modalities.

 

What is chemical dependency?
top of page
The chronic use of chemical substances in which the individual has developed a tolerance (when an individual needs more of the substance to get the same effect) and experiences withdrawal symptoms (physical symptoms manifested by the body needing the substance to feel normal again). A chemically dependent person is unable to stop drinking or taking a particular mood-altering chemical despite serious health, economic, legal, spiritual, vocational and social consequences.
The term “Chemical Dependency” is often used interchangeably with the terms: chemically dependent, chemical dependence, alcoholism, addiction, substance abuse, substance dependence, drug habit, and drug addiction.
