WHAT IS THERAPY? HOW DOES IT WORK? WHAT CAN IT DO FOR ME?
Therapy is a place where you can talk about your problems with someone who’s on your side. This person listens to you with compassion, understanding and acceptance.
In discussing your experiences, we examine them from both the content level and the emotional level, working to see patterns that exist in how you relate to yourself and others. We study different aspects of your experience, including your thoughts, feelings, memories, impulses, sensations in your body, and spirituality.
What can it do for you? It can help resolve long-standing dilemmas, whether they’re relationship issues with partners, family members, or friends, as well as your relationship with yourself. One of the key goals of psychotherapy is to assist with your feeling more comfortable in your own skin, in addition to feeling safer, both inside and out in the world.
