What is Therapy?
Therapy is a service provided by a licensed psychologist or licensed therapist that helps people learn to live a happier and fulfilling life. The approaches used in therapy are based on techniques that have helped others. Therapy is an active and collaborative process that occurs in a supportive, objective, and non-judgmental environment.
