Therapy Q&A

What is therapy?

Therapy, also called psychotherapy or talk therapy, includes speaking with a mental health professional to change your thoughts, behavior patterns, emotions, or lifestyle habits. Doing so can improve your mood and help you thrive in relationships, work, or school.

Therapy is a highly effective treatment that may allow you to avoid medications, though many times combining medicines with therapy provides the best outcome.

Which type of therapy is best for me?

Dr. Gulino reviews your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle habits to determine which type of therapy matches your needs. He will also ask a series of questions during a psychiatric evaluation. Dr. Gulino inquires about your thoughts, mood, emotions, behavior patterns, and more before tailoring a therapy plan just for you.

What should I expect during therapy sessions?
