Gotham Psychotherapy's treatment areas include:
Individual therapy is the treatment of mental or emotional disorders and adjustment problems through the use of psychological techniques rather than through physical or biological means.
Psychoanalysis the first modern form of psychotherapy, was called the “talking cure,” and the many varieties of therapy practiced today are still characterized by their common dependence on a verbal exchange between the counselor or therapist and the person seeking help.
Couples therapy is a form of psychological therapy used to treat relationship distress.
Carla has been trained in the Gottman Method, an approach to couples therapy based upon Dr. John Gottman’s four decades of research with thousands of couples. Dr. Gottman has shown how couples can accomplish long-term relationship satisfaction by paying attention to what he calls The Sound Relationship House, or the nine components of healthy relationships.
Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves all the members of a nuclear or extended family.
It may be conducted by a pair of therapists—often a man and a woman—to treat gender-related issues or serve as role models for family members. Although some types of family therapy are based on behavioral or psychodynamic principles, the most widespread form is based on family systems theory, an approach that regards the entire family as the unit of treatment, and emphasizes such factors as relationships and communication patterns rather than traits or symptoms in individual members.
Group Therapy is employed to assist each individual in emotional growth and personal problem solving.
Group therapy encompasses many different kinds of groups with varying theoretical orientations that exist for varying purposes. All therapy groups exist to help individuals grow emotionally and solve personal problems. All utilize the power of the group, as well as the therapist who leads it, in this process.
Unlike the simple two-person relationship between patient and therapist in individual therapy, group therapy offers multiple relationships to assist the individual in growth and problem solving.
