The general goals for the client are that they can identify the issues, develop a plan of action, and then implement that plan. This is a very personal process. It is educational and developmental by nature. Cures are not immediate, pain-free, or instant by nature, but may require diligent effort and candid exploration. This exploration often involves experiencing ‘unpleasant’ feelings as part of the counseling process within and outside of scheduled sessions. These feelings may include but are not limited to: Anger, guilt, sadness, anxiety, or confusion.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Lakewood are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Lakewood then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Lakewood, or Child Psychologists in Lakewood.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Lakewood psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Lakewood specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
