Every year, 1 in 5 adults in the United States experience mental illness. Although conditions like depression or anxiety can feel very isolating, it’s important to know that you don’t have to face these issues on your own. The same is true for overwhelming emotions like anger or grief. Not only is help available, but you can get help without subjecting yourself to all the potential side effects of prescription medication. 

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a way to work through problems like depression, anxiety, anger, grief or marriage issues with a psychotherapist. It involves the application of scientifically validated procedures to help people develop healthier, more effective habits. Psychotherapy in Lincoln can take several different forms, including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and other kinds of talk therapy.

How Can a Lincoln Psychotherapist Help You?

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment that’s grounded in dialogue. This practice gives you the opportunity to talk openly in a supportive environment with a professional who is objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. You’ll be able to work together with a psychotherapist to identify the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best. Once you’re aware of those patterns, you will be able to work with your psychotherapist to build skills to help you handle current and future challenges.
