"My approach to treatment is positive, strength-based and collaborative. Working in the psychotherapy field for over 25 years has taught me that the wisdom and capacity to heal lies within each of us, but we often need guidance in learning new tools and coping strategies in order to access this self-healing. Many people seek psychotherapy because they feel overwhelmed and because the emotions they are feeling - sadness, anxiety, anger, shame, have become intolerable. I use Somatic Experiencing and Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy to increase the body's capacity for coping and allow for natural self-healing to take place."

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

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