Psychotherapy pertains to patient-therapist counseling and psychological techniques.  These techniques may include eye movement desensitization retraining (EMDR), hypnosis, behavioral and desensitization techniques.  Dr. Gard is a cognitive-behavioral therapist who helps patients to cope with stress and emotional problems, working on problems in the "here-and-now".  Cognitive behavioral therapy is a way to address the way we think, feel and behave.  Looking at how people feel can help them determine different ways to thinking in order to cope better.  It helps people learn new methods of thinking, problem-solving, and reacting in order to improve their quality of life, work, and relationships.
