"Do you know the number one thing that will make or break your success in therapy? It’s whether you and your therapist, "click." It might sound like a no-brainer, but the relationship between you and your therapist is the most important aspect of success. You wouldn't talk with someone you didn't like or didn't trust and tell them your most hurtful, vulnerable, or embarrassing moments, would you? Some therapists have the skills to be awesome but forget that you are a person and not a diagnosis and don't fit a mold just because you feel a certain way. Does this "click" with you?

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.
