Sometimes the need for professional support is clear, such as obvious symptoms or an acute crisis. Other times, there is a nagging feeling that something is wrong and a question about whether or not psychiatric services are necessary. Consultations for this purpose are accepted on a case by case basis.
Psychotherapy is a great way way to learn about oneself, increase overall happiness, and break out of patterns that might be unhealthy. Relationship problems, including conflicts with friends, in-laws, and coworkers, can generally be improved upon with psychotherapy.
Medication, when used judiciously, is an important part of treatment. Everyone who is seeking services deserves a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which can and should take place over several sessions. A deeper exploration of other health issues is frequently warranted.
