Psychotherapy Q&A

How does psychotherapy work?

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment rooted in the relationship between you and your therapist. Often referred to as “talk therapy,” it centers on open dialogue in a supportive, nonjudgmental environment. Psychotherapists are not just good listeners - they are highly-trained in identifying unproductive patterns of behavior and thought, how these patterns originated and what you can do to change them.  

What types of problems can be addressed with psychotherapy ? 

We offer treatment for a wide range of concerns. Here are some of those most commonly treated at Max Psychiatry:

Attention deficient hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Anxiety and panic disorders

Social anxiety

Relationship conflict

Bipolar disorder

Chronic disease management


Life transition

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Stress and burnout

Sexual problems

Substance abuse

Eating Disorders / Weight loss

How do I know if I need psychotherapy?

Given that we all feel sad, stressed or anxious at various times, it can be difficult to know whether your experience warrants professional intervention. Unfortunately, too many people who would benefit from help do not seek treatment. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), only 46%-65% of those who suffer from moderate to severe mental health issues get treatment. Here are some questions to ask yourself when considering whether seeing a psychiatrist or therapist or counselor could be helpful:

Have you felt overwhelming sadness for a prolonged period?

Do you feel stuck? Have you not been able to move past your current problems, despite help from friends and family?

Is it difficult to concentrate and fulfill your day to day responsibilities?

Do you constantly worry?

Is your use of alcohol, drugs or other vices harming you or your relationships with others?

Do you notice that you keep getting into the same types of relationships...that don’t work?

Do you want to understand yourself on a deeper level?

How effective is psychotherapy?
