How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy can help with a variety of problems or issues. You may be facing a new problem, want to change behaviors, need healing from your past, or maybe you are going through a personal crisis. In psychotherapy, a person who is suffering from mental health issues, such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress, or depression, can receive the help they need.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
In my opinion, the purpose of psychotherapy is to gain a greater awareness and connection to Self. Psychotherapy, provides a container for you to look deeply and find resolution. Psychotherapy, helps you learn how to better relate to yourself. And from there you can relate better in all your relationships.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love being able to witness someone's healing from trauma and seeing them transform core beliefs that have limited them in their life. It is an honor to be able to help someone access what I think of as this indestructible strength inside. I love seeing people learn to accept, love themselves, start meeting their needs, and ultimately start valuing themselves more.
My Role as a Therapist
Although a therapist has the knowledge and expertise to provide guidance, they are not there to tell you how to live your life or give you advice about big decisions only you can make. I believe the role of a therapist is to provide a safe container for you to find the answers. I also believe that a therapist can facilitate processes that allow healing to occur. They can provide intervention to help you shift beliefs or ways of thinking. And they can teach you ways to better relate to emotions or life experiences that will benefit you overall.
