1Mental Health Counseling can be defined as a relatively short-term, interpersonal, theory-based process of helping persons who are basically psychologically healthy resolve developmental and situational problems. Our Counseling has distinct stages from initiation to termination.
2Psychotherapy (or therapy) traditionally focuses on serious problems associated with intrapsychic, internal, and personal issues and conflicts. It emphasizes on the past more than the present, on insight more than change, on the detachment of the therapist, and the therapist’s role as an expert.
3The major feature of a psychiatric evaluation is one or more face-to-face interviews in which the mental health professional asks the patient open-ended and diagnosis-specific questions to elicit answers that may be relevant in diagnosing a mental health condition.
4Psychiatric medication management requires a complete understanding of the patient’s current and past medical status, and may involve in some cases a focal physical examination, laboratory work or even imaging studies. Psychiatric medication may be provided to patients indefinitely if needed.
