We have multiple talented clinicians. Our approach to therapy is informed primarily by psychodynamic principles. The emphasis is on creating a safe, supportive environment in which to explore and develop insights into underlying feelings and thoughts. Together we will uncover deeply held assumptions that, although may have been useful at one time, today reinforce ways of coping in the world that are no longer effective or relevant.
Over time, old patterns of thinking and behavior become more easily recognizable, the consequences of those patterns well known, the meanings of the repetitions understood, the anxieties about change managed, and the exciting new possibilities of being in the world are played with, practiced, and lived.
Through guidance in therapy, a person learns that there are a range of options for solving problems that previously were unknown, felt out of reach, or were avoided due to an internal conflict. Ultimately, the primary goal of therapy is to develop the courage to function more independently and confidently in all aspects of life.
