Psychotherapy, also known as “talk therapy,” aims to help people understand their feelings and face challenges, both in the present and the future. Psychotherapy is similar to counseling, and the two can overlap. The former tends to look more deeply, addressing the underlying causes of a person’s problems and how to solve them. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual’s wellbeing and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions. The therapist assists in exploring issues and conflicts and healing wounds that limit the person’s ability to thrive and be the person they want to be.

To see positive results, a person will usually need to understand the need for change and follow the therapist’s advice. They will also need to find a suitable therapist they can trust. Psychotherapy can help when depression, low self-esteem, addiction, grief, or other factors leave a person feeling overwhelmed. It can also help treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and certain other mental health conditions.

People often, but not always, use both psychotherapy and medication.


There are many approaches to psychotherapy. Some forms last for only a few sessions, while others may continue, depending on the client’s needs. Individual sessions usually last for around 45–90 minutes and follow a structured process. Sessions may be one-to-one, in pairs, or in groups. Techniques can include talking and other forms of communication, such as drama, story-telling, or music. A psychotherapist may be a psychologist, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), Mental Health Intern, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Psychoanalyst, or a Psychiatrist


Psychotherapy can help people in a range of situations. For example, it may benefit someone who:

  • has overwhelming feelings of sadness or helplessness
  • feels anxious most of the time
  • has difficulty facing everyday challenges or focusing on work or studies
  • is using drugs or alcohol in a way that is not healthful
  • is at risk of harming themselves or others
  • feels that their situation will never improve, despite receiving help from friends and family
  • has experienced an abusive situation
  • has a mental health condition, such as schizophrenia, that affects their daily life
  • Some people attend psychotherapy after a doctor recommends it, but many seek help independently.


  • giving them someone to explore their problem with confidentially
  • enabling them to see things in a new way
  • helping them move toward a solution


  • learn more about themselves and their goals and values
  • identify causes of tension in relationships
  • develop skills for facing challenges
  • overcome specific problems, such as a phobia


  • have a desire to participate
  • engage actively in treatment
  • attend appointments and complete any assignments between sessions
  • be honest when describing symptoms and situations
  • Effectiveness can also depend on:
  • the reason for seeking therapy
  • the skill of the practitioner
  • the relationship between the therapist and the individual
  • any support the person may have outside the therapy sessions
  • A trusting relationship between the individual and the therapist is also essential to the process.

In the broader sense, psycho-education refers to the education given to people living with emotional disturbances. The rationale behind a psycho-educational approach is that, with a clear understanding of the mental condition and self-knowledge of own strengths, community resources, and coping skills, the individual is better equipped to deal with the problem and contribute to their emotional wellbeing. The core psycho-educational principle is education, which has a role in emotional and behavioral change. With an improved understanding of the causes and effects of the problem, psycho-education broadens the person’s perception and interpretation of the pain. This refined view positively influences the individual’s emotions and behavior.

Consequently, improved awareness of causes and effects leads to improved self-efficacy (believing that he can manage the situation), leading to better self-control. In other words, the person feels less helpless about the situation and more in control of themselves. Educating people about their mental issues can be an effective way to get the facts and learn effective coping strategies to take the steps necessary in helping themselves. Psycho-education is not a treatment modality; however, psycho-education is the first step of the overall treatment plan in our clinical setting.

The public policy of the state of California protects the best interest of children whose parents have a custody or visitation matter in family court. Sometimes, based on protection and safety issues, a judge will order that a child only contact a parent when a neutral third person is present during the visitation. This type of third-person visitation arrangement is often called “supervised visitation.”

A judge may order supervised visitation for many reasons, like:

  • To give the visiting parent a chance to address specific issues;
  • To help reintroduce a parent and a child after a long absence;
  • To help introduce a parent and a child when there has been no existing relationship between them;
  • When there is a history or allegations of domestic violence, child abuse, and neglect, or substance abuse;
  • When there are parenting concerns or mental illness; or
  • When there is a parental threat of abduction.

The court order will specify the time and duration of the visits. Sometimes, the court order will also determine who will provide the supervised visitation services and where the visits will occur.
