Adult Individual Psychotherapy
People come to therapy for a variety of reasons, including struggles in their relationships or work. These difficulties may manifest in the form of depression, anxiety or other symptoms that interfere with one’s sense of satisfaction or well-being. In addition there may be unconscious conflicts at play that add to emotional suffering.
In individual psychotherapy one learns to examine and reflect on past experiences that are impacting behavior, feelings and relationships in his or her daily life. The relationship between patient and therapist is an integral part of this process, through which the therapist endeavors to provide a trusting, empathic, safe and nurturing environment to support and guide the patient. The insight gained in therapy often leads to improvements in one’s overall functioning, relationships and sense of well-being. The value of an in-depth understanding of one’s life history encourages active participation in the creation of a new vision of self, others and the possibilities for the future.
