Therapy Q&A

What is talk therapy?

Talk therapy, also known as psychotherapy, is an umbrella term that refers to treatments that help you identify and change troubling behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. Talk therapy takes place between an individual or group and a licensed mental health professional.

Anyone can benefit from talk therapy. Many patients use talk therapy to work through negative feelings and emotions, like grief and loss, relationship problems, and past traumas. Others use therapy to help manage mental health conditions like depression and anxiety.

What is cognitive behavioral therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a popular type of talk therapy that helps you recognize your harmful thought patterns and change them or respond to them differently.

CBT is a structured type of therapy built around your treatment goals. Alone or in combination with medication, CBT can be effective in treating a variety of mental health disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), PTSD, depression, and eating disorders. 

In general, CBT is also an excellent tool to help individuals learn how to better respond to stress.

What happens during therapy?

Your first therapy session at Iasis Solutions is an opportunity for you and your new therapist to get to know one another, understand your goals, and decide if you’re a good fit for each other. 

Typically, at the beginning of your first session, your provider will ask you questions about yourself, your concerns, and what you’d like to work on. They will also discuss your familial, physical, and emotional history, as well as your current medications.

Together, you will decide:

  • The best type of therapy for you
  • The goals of your treatment
  • The length of each session
  • The frequency of sessions

At Iasis Solutions, Virginia may also write prescriptions to use in conjunction with therapy. She will help with medication management, making sure that you are only taking necessary and beneficial medications for your conditions.

It’s true what they say — therapy is for everyone. If you’re interested in learning more about therapy or scheduling an appointment, contact the compassionate team at Iasis Solutions over the phone or via the online booking tool today.
