Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is an effective treatment option for a variety of conditions. This type of therapy involves talking about different factors that influence your life, including your relationships, your job, and your physical health.

The goal of psychotherapy is to help you learn more about a mental health condition and what triggers symptoms like depression and anxiety, so Dr. Ahuja can help you change how you respond.

Over time, your therapy sessions can help change the way you feel about yourself and what you think about your circumstances. You also build an open and honest relationship with Dr. Ahuja and have access to tools that improve your mental, physical, and emotional health.

What conditions can psychotherapy treat?

Psychotherapy is an effective therapy option for treating mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. You might also benefit from psychotherapy to stay organized and focused if you have attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Even if you don’t have a mental health disorder, Dr. Ahuja can recommend psychotherapy as a part of a therapy plan to address:

  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Family conflict
  • Major life changes
  • Loss of a loved one

Psychotherapy is also an integral part of the LGBTQ mental health services Dr. Ahuja provides to address sexual orientation, gender identity, and other issues affecting LGBTQ people.

Dr. Ahuja often uses a combination of psychotherapy and medications to treat depression, anxiety, and trauma-related symptoms. In some cases, participating in psychotherapy can reduce your reliance on medications while keeping you in control of your mental health.

What can I expect during psychotherapy?

During your first psychotherapy appointment, you can expect to spend time with Dr. Ahuja discussing information about your current health, your medical history, and your mental health. He also asks questions about your job, your relationships, and your lifestyle to better understand your needs.

You will meet with Dr. Ahuja on a regular basis in-office or via online conferencing. He continues to monitor your progress in treatment and provides resources to help you manage your mental health condition, trauma, or conflicts.

The number of therapy sessions you need depends on your unique situation. Dr. Ahuja provides a safe, non-judgmental space for you to address any issues that interfere with your quality of life.
