Family Systems theory suggests that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another, but rather as a part of a system. Relationships are seen as systems of interconnected and interdependent individuals. One's behavior is understood in terms of how they react to others and others react to them.
The goal is to help people improve communication, reduce conflict, solve relationship problems, understand and handle special situations (for example, death, serious physical or mental illness, or child and adolescent issues) and create better functioning relationships.
An Overview of Traditional Therapy
For those of you who would like the familiarity of an in-person Doctor’s visit at their therapist’s office, we at Online Therapy and Counseling Until Midnight have private, secure, soundproofed offices in West Los Angeles. We offer traditional talk therapy including psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and marriage, family and child counseling, as well as the newer approaches to behavioral change including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Sex Counseling.
Some concerns can be effectively addressed in online therapy and some personal challenges are best treated in the doctor’s office. You and your doctor will discuss your psychotherapeutic needs, as well as your budget to come up with and personalize the most helpful individualized treatment plan for you.
Modern psychoanalysis is the In-depth psychological treatment using the relationship between the Doctor and Patient to explore one's relationship to themselves, to others and to the world. The repetition of problematic patterns is focused upon.
Modern Psychoanalysis, Psychological Counseling and Psychotherapy have been found to be applicable to all types of emotional illness including neuroses, psychoses, borderline conditions, depression, and character disorders. The findings of modern psychoanalysis have contributed new insights into both the dynamics of emotional illnesses and the mechanisms through which the analytic process cures these conditions.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a common type of mental health counseling (psychotherapy). With cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions.
Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.
