About Mental Health Therapists
A mental health therapist provides help for one or more mental health disorders, often through psychotherapy (talk therapy). The goal of a mental health therapist might be described best by the American Psychological Association: to help people “live happier, healthier, more productive lives.”
Mental health counselors and therapists can be licensed or certified in different areas. For example, there are therapists for depression and anxiety; trauma and grief; drug and alcohol addiction; PTSD; psychosis, and other problems affecting a person's mental and emotional well-being.
A good example of this diversity are the therapists and counselors at Dr. John G. Kuna and Associates. Many of our staff have advanced degrees, certifications, and/or years of experience providing mental health services in their communities.
