  • Does therapy work? What are the benefits?
    • Yes! Therapy is not only effective - it has long-term effects for those seeking services. 
    • In fact, the American Psychological Association Notes: "With an effective therapist, science shows that psychotherapy even works better in the long-term and is more enduring than medication. In fact, not only is it more cost-effective, but psychotherapy leads to fewer relapses of anxiety and mild to moderate depression than medication use alone—so much so that Norwegian Health Authorities have issued new guidelines concerning treatment of mild to moderate depression and anxiety, stating that psychological interventions, not medications, should be applied first."
