Therapy Q&A

What is therapy?

Therapy (psychotherapy) is one of the primary types of mental health treatment. It allows you to discuss your concerns and life challenges with a licensed mental health professional.

During therapy, you gain insight into yourself and your experiences. Your therapist helps you identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Then they help you heal, cope, and move forward on the path toward a fulfilling life.

When should I seek therapy?

The primary goal of therapy is to give you the support you need to navigate life's challenges. Many people seek therapy when they need help dealing with fear, trauma, grief, and stress. Others schedule therapy when they feel overwhelmed or uncertain about life transitions, such as divorce, losing a job, moving, or being diagnosed with an illness.

Dr. Choudhary often works with children struggling with emotional and behavioral issues and developmental disabilities like ADHD. He also helps parents learn to understand and support their children, whether they face opposition, defiance, or anger.

  • Anxiety
