"Maybe you haven't said it out loud...but those feelings are still there. Those thoughts pop up..sneaking in to your daily routine. Sometimes you feel uneasy or anxious for no reason. Even when things are going well you still can't help but feel....off. Not yourself. You don't have to carry that stuff around anymore. It doesn't have to weigh you down and effect work, your relationships, your self-esteem. Change Happens Here. Take back control. Take back your life. Feel like YOU again."

"Often, when we are hurting, we don't know why. We think it might be work, or problems at home. It might be money, or worries about health. These vague, nameless feelings are sometimes softened just by feeling understood. Feeling better in the world, sometimes, is achieved by feeling deeper connections to others, feeling responded to rather than ignored, and just simply feeling that who you are is important to another human being. I believe that being seen, recognized, and having explanations that make sense, can improve your life, both on a deeper level, and on a day to day basis."

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Pasadena, 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 Pasadena are able to work with a wide range of issues.
