Serious problems often need someone to both listen and offer alternative ways for thinking in order to make changes that last. Doing nothing and just hoping and wishing that things will get better doesn't work. I will prompt you and support you in taking concrete steps.

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.
