"I've been seeing Dr.Stepanoff now for almost two years and I must say that he is the best therapist I've ever had. I've had many problems with depression and anxiety and I've seen about 6 different therapists and psychiatrists, all of which diagnosed me as having some sort of anxiety disorder and/or severe depression...You know, the generic diagnosis every therapist gives their patients when they don't know what else to say!!! However, the diagnostic process was much more elaborate with Dr.Stepanoff. I explained to him that I've always been a "nervous" person and can't deal with stress very well but depression just kind of seems to hit me out of nowhere every 6 months or so. I always thought I was bipolar but Dr.Stepanoff did hours of testing on me (which I never had before even though I've seen just about every therapist in Southern California) and he diagnosed me as having Adult ADHD. Little did I know that this is one of the most misdiagnosed mental disorders in women and is often confused with being Bipolar because the symptoms are apparently very similar. No wonder I was never properly diagnosed! Needless to say, Dr.Stepanoff was truly a Godsend! I feel better than ever now that I'm taking the appropriate medication and understand what the root of my problems and impulsivity are. I must say I read some unfavorable reviews about him and felt compelled to write a review after what he's done for me in my life. If you're the person who's looking for the stereotypical therapist who sits and nods and lets you ramble on for hours about your life, Dr.Stepanoff is not the man for you! Don't get me wrong, he is a great listener and is very thorough in his work. However, I would describe him as a very hands-on kind of doctor in that he wants to find a solution for you and get to the root of your problems as soon as possible (without jeopardizing the quality of his work of course). Now I don't know about the rest of my depressed and anxious family but I want a solution to my losing my will to live as quickly as humanly possible! This is why Dr.Stepanoff has been perfect for me.... he got to the root of my problems quickly and made his job seem effortless. Highly recommended:-)"

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is commonly referred to as talk therapy or simply therapy. Trained therapists help and guide patients as they talk through issues in their life and problem-solve ways to make healthy changes.

The use of therapy is extremely common, with millions of people going through therapy each year in the United States alone. It can be useful for patients who want to learn coping skills when they are facing difficult issues or need to heal from past trauma. Therapy can also be a support tool when patients are facing stressful periods in their life. Essentially, therapy is helpful any time life events require more mental or emotional resources than a patient currently has. Change is a major theme of therapy, offering a supportive environment for patients to make changes to their life or themselves so that past problems stop recurring in the future.

There are several different types of psychotherapy, with the most common being cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT. This type of therapy focuses on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, is a form of CBT that encourages acceptance and validation as well as change. Interpersonal therapy focuses on relationships and communication as a pathway to feeling better. Psychoanalysis, an older form of therapy invented by Sigmund Freud, teaches that all problems stem from the unconscious. Although many people see therapists by themselves, not all psychotherapy is one-on-one. For example, in family therapy, the therapist treats a family as a unit. Patients can also participate in group therapy, where they meet as a group to work on issues.

Psychotherapy is a safe, powerful healing tool that can help patients lead happier and healthier lives. However, therapy is a joint effort between the patient and the therapist. Both need to work together in order for therapy to be effective.
