Psychotherapy can be defined as any type of persuasive or conversational approach designed to help patients. Although there are hundreds of techniques, most have in common a hope to understand the patient and help the patient change emotional or behavioral patterns. It aims to increase the individual’s sense of their own well-being. Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change that are designed to improve the mental health of a client or patient, or to improve group relationships (such as in a family). if you think your are in need of this kind of service visit Dr. Beth Firestein’s website at
