Psychotherapy is the most common form of treatment to manage psychological, emotional, and mental well-being. Psychotherapy can take the form of being solution focused where attention is given to a specific issue that needs to be remediated or longer term analysis where a patient can come in up to five days per week to explore and reflect on his or her life.
Often, psychotherapy is clinical and evidence based with the vast majority of therapists, including Dr. Jinnie Cristerna, being trained in a form of evidence based therapy such as cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical therapy, or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy). There are also theoretic modalities that are used in traditional talk therapy to help patients deepen their understanding in more dynamic ways. The theories used can be self-psychology, object-relations, relational, drive, and Jungian.
Psychotherapy is effective in processing life challenges, managing one's emotional well-being, and expressing one's thoughts and feelings.
The three common types of psychotherapy are clinical, psychodynamic, and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Dr. Jinnie Cristerna utilizes all three forms of psychotherapy, several theoretical modalities and forms of evidence-based therapy.
