"Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better! "

We also experience good, positive changes. Ironically, these too can be quite stressful.

It can be tremendously helpful to have the attention, support and perspective of a thoughtful therapist.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 20815, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20815 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20815 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20815 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20815 or family therapy in 20815.
