Psychotherapy is an interactive process in which feelings, thoughts, needs and behaviors are discussed with a licensed mental health professional. It occurs in a safe and neutral environment that facilitates the achievement of personal goals and ongoing self development.
There are various modalities of psychotherapy (e.g., psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive behavioral). Dr. Lemare-Calaba integrates many schools of psychotherapy into her treatment approach and relates to each client individually based on their needs. If for some reason Dr. Lemare-Calaba's office is not a good fit for a client, recommendations and referrals can be discussed.
Psychotherapy can be short or long term and may be for individuals, couples, families or groups.
Except in certain insurance or legally mandated situations, psychotherapy is private and confidential.
