  • What is Psychotherapy?

    Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, allows people who are undergoing stress, trauma, or life changes to heal, grow, and cope from painful experiences causing problems or issues in their lives. World of Hope uses a cognitive-behavioral approach, believing that you can overcome negative feelings and dysfunctional behavior with a change of thoughts and guidance.

    Your recovery begins whenever you decide.

    Recovery looks different for everyone. It can be a life-long or short-term journey. Time is not the deciding factor for recovery; it is the journey. Once you are on the path to recovery, your skills for decision-making, coping, problem-solving, and communication improve.
    Our decisions are made based on our values and core beliefs. When we are clear of what those are, we begin to walk towards our vision.
