What is Psychotherapy?


The American Psychological Association defines psychotherapy as the communication between patients and therapists that is intended to:

  • Find relief from emotional distress, as in becoming anxious, fearful, or depressed.

  • Seek solutions to problems such as disappointment, grief, family issues, and job or career dissatisfaction.

  • Modify ways of thinking and acting that are preventing them from working productively and enjoying personal relationships.
