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

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