Types of Therapy

You might’ve already noticed the surprising amount of types of therapy available. Though some approaches work best for specific conditions, others can help with a range of issues.

At JSA, you’ll work with a trained mental health professional. What you’ll do in each appointment depends on the preferred methods of your therapist and the issues you’re looking to address and the age of the client.

You can expect to spend time discussing how challenging situations, emotions, and behaviors affect your life.

This will likely involve working through some negative events or distressing thoughts. It may be difficult in the moment, but the end result is usually a happier, more fulfilling life.

We are so proud to have a range of therapists in both our offices, ready to work with your entire family.
