"After an infidelity on my wife's part, my wife scheduled an appointment with Nicole. After one session, Nicole suggested one on one sessions where I told Nicole that I do not believe counseling works. Then she began taking my wife on as a personal client where Nicole told my wife to continue her relationship with her lover. Nicole walked my wife through a continuing affair, kicking me out of my house and away from my kids, and a very hurtful seperation. Nicole does not care about anyone's marriage. She will ruin your marriage if she feels like she is losing a client."May 22, 2019
What is Therapy?Therapy, in a mental health context, includes a broad range of treatments designed to help people feel and function better in their daily life. It usually involves talking to a professional to gain insight and coping skills for stressful life events. Some of the fields that may be included under 'therapy' are:
- Psychology, or the scientific study of the mind, including the science behind human development and cognition, mental health, memory, perception, and intelligence.
- Psychotherapy, or 'talk therapy,' where patients talk to a therapist in order to problem solve and learn new ways to handle difficult issues in their lives.
- Counseling, which is sometimes used interchangeably with psychotherapy, and is very similar. It is also a type of 'talk therapy,' but it tends to be more short-term, and it can be provided by professionals without medical credentials, such as spiritual advisors. The goal of both counseling and psychotherapy is to improve a patient's well being by helping them navigate difficult situations in life.
- Substance abuse therapy, or rehabilitation, which often uses a combination of medication and talk therapy for treatment. Substance abuse therapy may include coping skills, life skills training, family therapy, or behavioral therapy to learn new ways of reacting.
