Learn more below about some of the therapy types we offer in Wilkes-Barre:

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy approaches anxiety, depression, and other issues from the standpoint of your self-talk. In CBT, we show you how your thoughts strongly influence your emotions and behavior. With more rational and positive thinking, you can learn to control your negative emotions and handle life’s stressors more easily.

Addiction Therapy

Addiction can take hold of people and influence them to act in ways they usually wouldn’t. Matters get further complicated when addiction begins affecting your mental and physical health. Our professionals help you work through your addiction and set you on the road to recovery.

Anger Management

Anger is a natural part of being human, but major interpersonal problems can arise when it spirals out of control. Our therapists help you think about your anger in new ways and show you healthier approaches to managing your triggers.

How Many Therapy Sessions Will I Need?

There is no definitive answer to how many sessions you’ll need with us. The number differs by patient. Sometimes, our patients work through their problems with short-term counseling, which lasts six to twelve months. Other situations require longer-term therapy lasting several years.

The best way to think about this question is to remember that your therapy will take as long as it has to for you to overcome your symptoms and become self-sufficient in handling your triggers when they appear.
