What are the different types of psychotherapy?

Dr. Mensah offers a wide range of psychotherapy options. Depending on your condition, personality, and other factors, certain therapeutic modalities may be more beneficial for you than others. Some of the common types of therapy include:

CBT helps you identify negative thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. You learn and practice strategies to replace your negative thoughts and actions with more healthy and positive choices. 

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)

During DBT, you learn behavioral skills to help you cope with stress, manage your emotions, and improve your relationships.

Acceptance and commitment therapy

Acceptance and commitment therapy helps you develop an awareness of your thoughts and feelings so you can commit to making positive changes and increase your ability to cope and adjust to challenging situations.

Psychodynamic and psychoanalysis therapies

During psychodynamic and psychoanalysis therapies, you work on increasing your awareness of your unconscious thoughts and behaviors. You develop insight into your motivations and resolve internal conflict.

Interpersonal psychotherapy

Interpersonal psychotherapy helps you improve your communication and interpersonal skills to help you improve your relationships with friends, family, and colleagues.
