"What is Psychotherapy?"
Clinical social workers who specialize in psychotherapy and other forms of psychological treatment are highly trained professionals with expertise in the areas of human behavior, mental health assessment, diagnosis and treatment, and behavior change. A clinical social worker guides patients to change their feelings and attitudes and helps them develop healthier, more effective patterns of behavior.
Clinical social workers apply scientifically validated procedures to help people change their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between one or more individuals and a trained clinician. It provides a supportive environment to talk openly ad confidentially about concerns and feelings. Clinical social workers consider maintaining your confidentiality extremely important and will answer your questions regarding those rare circumstances when confidential information must be shared.
