Psychology, Psychotherapy, Marriage & Family Therapy
I'm a licensed professional.
Psychotherapy helps people to understand themselves, their relationships, and other people. In a time, when we have an overload of information from many different medias, the one person we need to rely on is ourselves. The better we know who we are, what makes us do what we do, how we think, what our emotions are telling us, and how to act towards oneself and others is vital to our survival.
While we often go to therapy when some personal experience has overwhelmed our ability to know what to do, the real work in going to therapy is to become aware of who you are, how you think and feel, how you understand your feelings, how to make better choices, have healthier relationships, and how to enrich every day of your life. The more comfortable you are with yourself, the better you can handle what life brings you. Our self preservation depends upon our being mindfully aware of our needs and how to fulfill them.
