Patients in pain may engage in activities that can significantly impact their overall physical state; such as eating unhealthy, smoking, drinking, or medication dependence.

How does it work?
Psychotherapy is similar to psychological or counseling session, in which the psychotherapists will ask the patient a series of questions regarding behaviors, ideals, history of life problems and events, and any other subject that may contribute to the patient’s current mental illness/condition. Modifications on how to endure and overcome these issues will be recommended, along with possible medications and other specialties that may enhance their treatment. Our psychotherapists will also educate patients regarding their mental illness and recommend techniques in order to prevent any resurfacing of said conditions.
