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

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