What is therapy?

Therapy (also called talk therapy, psychotherapy, and counseling) is an effective treatment that helps people recover from curable mental health disorders and challenging experiences. It also enables people to manage life-long psychiatric conditions like bipolar disorder.

Talk therapy takes many forms, but they all involve regular sessions with a skilled counselor like Caroline at Kente Therapy Space. She helps you understand your moods, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

During a therapy session, Caroline guides or prompts you so that you can identify and address the problems you’re struggling with. She also helps you develop coping skills. Therapy is a confidential, judgment-free process, so you can speak freely and honestly no matter what’s on your mind. Please note there are limits to confidentiality and Caroline can explain these conditions during your intake.

What conditions can therapy treat?

Talk therapy can help treat most psychiatric conditions, including:

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

Talk therapy is also highly effective for stress and anger management.

Patients with mild mental health disorders and those dealing with difficult experiences like grief often don’t need any treatment apart from therapy. But for more severe disorders, medication or treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) might also be helpful options.

What is the best kind of therapy?

Many different approaches to therapy are available. Some focus on examining traumas from your past, while others help you with current problems and everyday challenges. No single approach is best for everyone, so you should discuss the therapist’s methods before choosing.

Caroline specializes in body centered and Gestalt therapy. She’s completing her third-year clinical fellowship at Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy, undergoing advanced clinical training in Gestalt therapy theory. This approach focuses on the present and helping you overcome the difficulties you face in daily life.

Because Gestalt therapy concentrates on self-awareness, it helps people with depression learn to recognize stressors that trigger their symptoms. If you have anxiety, Gestalt therapy enables you to understand the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that make you anxious.

Caroline is also an expert in helping you to become more aware of the mind, body and  spirit connection. She helps you understand the role of obstacles and supports in enhancing yourself and relationships.
