Outpatient Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy helps a person change and overcome problems in desired ways through the use of particular methods. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual's well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills. HCS uses psychotherapies that are considered evidence-based. Most psychotherapy methods involve one-to-one sessions, between client and therapist, and can include family when requested or needed. Psychotherapists may be mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, or professional counselors. Mental health practitioners may also engage in psychotherapy if they are on track for professional licensure; either completed a master's level program or in the practicum phase of a master's level program. These individuals are supervised under a mental health professional until independently licensed.
