Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a journey of self discovery that results in meaningful character change that supports you. It helps you gain awareness about how your early development and past experiences have shaped your current feelings and unique perceptions about yourself and others. Understanding the origins and meaning of self limiting beliefs and behaviors often resolves deep rooted conflicts that formed earlier and are no longer relevant to your current circumstances. This brings a spaciousness for greater auhenticity and self actualization.
Interpreting dreams and dream symbols sheds light on unconscious conflicts and wishes. These insights into your feelings, defenses, wishes, and needs help you find self acceptance and the courage to move forward toward your goals. While you are encouraged to openly express your thoughts and feelings, you set the pace as you feel comfortable, so safety and trust are developed as the work unfolds.
The goal is to expand your thinking and broaden your options, with effective coping, healthier behaviors, and stronger relationships. With increased mindfulness and improved self-esteem, conflicts and debilitating symptoms subside so you navigate your inner emotional world. Therapy brings the freedom to make positive choices, so you can shape your life to your liking, and find greater fulfillment.
