Mental Health Therapy in Pompano Beach

Individuals with mental health issues find psychotherapy or talk therapy to be useful in treating conditions. Depending on your current situation, the level of your mental health will determine the type and length of your mental health therapy. Other factors like medication and exercises will be added as part of your therapy if it is necessary as part of your overall treatment plan.

Meeting with a therapist can help you overcome and deal with symptoms, thoughts, stresses, behaviors, goals, and any other concerns which can have an overall effect on your mental health recovery. We understand that talking with a therapist can be tough, but it has been known to highlight the biggest problems in people’s lives. Additionally, sessions with a therapist which allow you to simply talk about your problems can be used as a feeling of stress-release, allowing you to feel heard, understood, and supported.

Therapy comes in many forms, whether it be individual, in groups, or as a family, the right option will be tailored to maximize results. As you go through therapy sessions you will be able to share your thoughts with people you trust, like family members or solely the therapist. At Portner Counseling, we understand that individuals with mental health issues have a very sensitive side, therefore trust needs to be built up slowly for progress to move forward. At Portner Counseling you will be in therapy sessions of the upmost confidence that anything between you and a therapist will remain exactly that: A trust-worthy environment that will never break.
