What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy or counseling, involves building a therapeutic relationship with your therapist to explore your life and any difficulties you are experiencing, identifying areas for possible change or growth, and implementing new behaviors or beliefs to bring about relief and improvement. There are many types of psychotherapy, but at Sulcata Psychiatry we focus on several evidence based practices that have been shown to evoke physical changes in brain chemistry and structure associated with improved symptom control. Psychotherapy can be utilized for virtually any diagnosis, although some diagnoses are known to respond best to specific therapy interventions. For example, EMDR is extremely helpful for processing trauma and extremely physical anxiety symptoms, while CBT has been shown to be extremely helpful for anxiety, depressive disorders, or low self esteem. DBT skills are helpful for personality disorders, and group therapy can be helpful for processing difficult life events or transitions. The therapists at Sulcata Psychiatry are skilled at evaluating and selecting the appropriate therapy modality or combination of techniques that align with your treatment goals. We believe in the healing power of a safe and therapeutic relationship.

What is EMDR?
EMDR is short for Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing therapy. We recommend anyone interested in EMDR watch this short video describing the process HERE and read more about it on the American Psychiatry Association website HERE.
EMDR is a very structured therapy that has excellent results in treating and processing trauma. It can also be used for intense anxiety, fear, and emotional distress. It involves focusing on a memory while simultaneously using physical stimulation to reduce the level of distress associated with the thought or memory. EMDR therapy requires regular therapy sessions that generally occur once a week. Amanda Rogers, LCSW is trained and certified in EMDR therapy, and we would be happy to set up an evaluation to assess if you are an appropriate candidate for EMDR.
Sulcata Psychiatry offers a rotating option of group therapies led by our licensed mental health providers. The topic of groups depends on our clinic's current needs. Therapy groups generally meet weekly for 1.5 hours over the course of 8 weeks or on a rolling basis once a month.
