Psychotherapy & Counseling

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a treatment for emotional and mental health conditions that involve talking to a qualified therapist on an ongoing basis. 

Over time, psychotherapy can help you better understand your feelings and help you cope with difficult emotions so they don’t interfere with your work, personal relationships, and other aspects of your life.

What types of psychotherapy are available?

The experienced therapists at Greater Lowell Psychiatric Associates have training and expertise in a variety of psychotherapeutic techniques. Some of the methods your therapist may utilize during your psychotherapy sessions include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy

Psychotherapists also draw on mindfulness practices, trauma healing techniques, and other resources to provide personalized, holistic care for behavioral and mental health conditions.

What is counseling?

Counseling is also a form of talk therapy, but while psychotherapy is often a long-term process that’s intended to address many emotional issues, counseling is typically a shorter process that focuses on a specific, immediate concern. 

A mental health provider who acts as a counselor helps you understand your immediate problem, guides you in making a plan to address the problem and supports you as you take steps to resolve the issue. Counselors provide services such as:

  • Couples therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Stress management
  • Support during difficult life events

The therapists at Greater Lowell Psychiatric Associates provide outstanding psychotherapy and counseling services to families, youth, individuals, and couples.

Which conditions can benefit from psychotherapy and counseling?

The caring providers at Greater Lowell Psychiatric Associates can address a wide range of behavioral, emotional, and mental health concerns, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger management
  • Parenting skills
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • School or work-related issues
  • Issues related to gender identity, sexual orientation, and sexuality

Antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and other types of medicines aren’t always necessary to recover from a mental health condition. 

However, your provider may recommend medication along with talk therapy to best meet your individual needs. Greater Lowell Psychiatric Associates offers expert medication management for patients who may benefit from prescription medications as part of their personal treatment plan.
