Psychotherapy Q&A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, also called “talk therapy,” involves speaking with an experienced mental health professional to work through problems that affect your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It’s geared toward relieving symptoms and can also help you pinpoint the root causes of those symptoms so you can address them better.

At Healthyminds Wellness LLC, Dr. Oyeneyin provides psychotherapy in a one-on-one setting, either in the office or through telepsychiatry (virtual appointments). He’s dedicated to helping you heal in a safe and supportive environment. 

Should I consider psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy supports patients with mental health, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental disorders of all types, including:

  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Learning disabilities
  • Conduct disorder
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Impulse control disorder

If you’re having difficulty with your mental wellness and it’s interfering with your daily life, psychotherapy can give you powerful recovery tools. 

What does psychotherapy involve?

Psychotherapy is highly individualized care at Healthyminds Wellness LLC. It focuses on talking with Dr. Oyeneyin and learning new skills, which can be incredibly valuable in your healing journey. 

There are at least 100 different approaches to psychotherapy, so no two patients have the exact same experience. Dr. Oyeneyin works with you individually to determine what approaches are right for you. While every method of psychotherapy is unique, it can help you: 

  • Navigate and understand your emotional landscape
  • Detect unhealthy patterns
  • Gain valuable insights
  • Develop healthier thought patterns
  • Develop new coping strategies
  • Build resilience
  • Foster personal empowerment
  • Make long-term transformative change

Psychotherapy sessions usually last 45-50 minutes and typically occur once a week, although Dr. Oyeneyin tailors the therapy plan that fits your needs best. Treatment may be as short as a few weeks or as long as several years, based on what you want and need.

Does psychotherapy treatment include medication?

Psychotherapy doesn’t include medication, however; most patients get the best results by combining psychotherapy and medication. They’re like the twin cornerstones of mental health care, so Dr. Oyeneyin provides both services at Healthyminds Wellness LLC. 

Psychotropic medication can help correct neurotransmitter imbalances in the brain, which helps regulate your thoughts, moods, and behaviors better. Putting your new psychotherapy skills into effect at the same time provides the best complete treatment.
