Therapy Q & A

What is therapy?

Therapy is a collaborative mental health treatment in which you overcome mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges by talking with a trained therapist in a safe, supportive environment.

Your therapist guides the conversation, asking questions, finding connections, teaching coping skills, and helping you gain insight from the feelings, thoughts, and experiences you share.

When would I need therapy?

People seek therapy when they feel burned out, want to improve their self-esteem, or need help navigating an important life decision (to name a few issues that benefit from therapy). Talk therapy also teaches practical life solutions, such as learning communication and social skills.

Parents frequently seek therapy for their relationship problems or personal mental health challenges and when they need help managing their teen’s behavioral or emotional problems.

What type of therapy might I receive? 

The Duality Mental Health team is highly trained and experienced in many therapies. Their expertise lets them personalize your treatment with an approach or technique that fits your goals and improves your mental well-being.

Your Duality Mental Health provider may employ:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT is a specific therapy and also an umbrella term for a group of therapies based on the principle that your thoughts and perceptions directly impact your emotions and behaviors.

During therapy, you may learn to identify and change unrealistic and negative thoughts and behaviors or focus on emotional regulation.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

DBT helps you identify, accept, and heal strong, negative emotions. It also focuses on finding solutions for challenges, learning to reduce conflict, improving communication, and following mindfulness practices.

Psychodynamic therapy

Psychodynamic therapy looks into the past (and may explore your dreams). The goal is to recognize unconscious thought and behavior patterns arising from negative past experiences and gain insight into how they affect your current feelings, actions, and relationships.
