Psychotherapy Q&A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is an effective treatment for a range of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Sleep disorders 
  • Postpartum depression
  • Substance use disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The goal of psychotherapy is to help you recognize negative or intrusive patterns of thought that lower your quality of life. Therapy also gives you tools you can use in your daily life to better cope with the challenges of a mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder.

NYC Psychiatric Associates offers psychotherapy sessions for adults and children in a comfortable, supportive office environment.

The experienced psychiatric team can also meet with you virtually through an online telemedicine platform so you can address your challenges without leaving the comfort of your own home.

When should I consider psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a treatment option for a range of mental, emotional, and behavioral health conditions, but it can also be beneficial for those who need help managing:

  • Grief
  • Loss
  • Overthinking
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Feeling overwhelmed or stuck in life

The team has extensive experience helping people navigate life with more clarity and confidence through patient-centered psychotherapy.

They provide supportive guidance through each therapy session and offer a judgment-free, safe space for you to address challenges that hold you back.

What can I expect during my first psychotherapy session?

Each person has a different path to recovery from mental and emotional disorders. The NYC Psychiatric Associates team personalizes a therapy plan to meet your unique needs and wellness goals.

During your initial psychotherapy session, the team reviews your medical history and the results of your psychiatric evaluation. They guide you through a series of questions to open up the lines of honest communication.

Your therapist can also provide real-time tools you can use to improve your mindset, make important lifestyle changes, and stay motivated to achieve your life goals.

They discuss how often you should schedule follow-up therapy sessions based on your diagnosis and symptoms. You meet with your therapist online or in the office to access the resources you need to support your short-term and long-term wellness goals.
