Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, also called counseling or talk therapy, is a well-established treatment for mental health problems that involves talking with a specially trained provider, such as a psychologist, psychiatrist, or other mental health professional. 

The diverse team at Beautiful Mind Behavioral Health Services includes holistic, spiritual-focused practitioners, such as a healthcare chaplain and pastoral psychotherapist.  

What does psychotherapy treat?

Psychotherapy has a vast array of applications, from stress and family problems to clinical disorders like depression. The team at Beautiful Mind Behavioral Health Services uses talk therapy to treat many conditions, including:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Substance use disorders (addiction)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Personality disorders, including borderline personality disorder

Not everyone who goes to therapy has a clinical mental health disorder. Counseling can help resolve conflicts in marriages in families, reduce stress, and help you cope with major life changes, such as grief over the loss of a loved one.

What are the different types of psychotherapy?

The team at Beautiful Mind Behavioral Health Services offers individualized therapy services. Depending on your needs, they may use one or more of the following types of psychotherapy.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT is a common approach to talk therapy that helps you become aware of inaccurate, unhealthy, or negative patterns of thinking. Then, your provider teaches you how to replace destructive thoughts and behaviors with healthy, positive ones. 

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

This is a type of CBT that focuses specifically on managing painful emotions and reducing conflict in relationships. Originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder, DBT also helps other conditions, including depression, bipolar disorder, and substance abuse. 

Mindfulness-based therapy

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) incorporates mindfulness practices, such as meditation and breathing exercises. These exercises help you break away from unhealthy thought patterns before they spiral into a state of depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. 

Trauma-focused therapy

Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is a modified form of CBT specifically designed for child, adolescent, and adult survivors and families struggling to overcome the effects of trauma. This approach may help anyone who experiences anxiety, depression, or substance abuse after a traumatic situation like sexual, physical, or emotional abuse.
