Insight-oriented therapy, addresses the source that explains our behavior. Sometimes just realizing where we acquired an irrational fear, belief, or habit is enough. Other times it provides us the conviction or the understanding to work on changing an attitude or a reaction that we know is harmful. Insight often helps us be easier on ourselves; when we recognize there’s a reason we feel or behave as we do, even as we recognize that the reason may no longer be a good one. Many patients feel a sense of freedom when they figure/find a solution for the issue.

Medication can be a valuable part of treatment for some conditions. When areas of the brain are over-stimulated/under-stimulated, may respond poorly to therapy. The brain chemistry maybe out of balance, being on the proper medication can improve the results of therapy. Each person is unique, not every person requires medication.
