What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy sometimes is used interchangeably with the word counseling. Advice can come from supportive friends, but counseling and psychotherapy provide more benefit by our exploring and learning together, the underlying causes of your particular life problems and symptoms.
We know that many of our perspectives originate from early experience, feelings and thoughts, some of which are outside our awareness. We work in the here-and-now to loosen long-standing patterns that have been getting in the way of living life more fully. Over time, people become more aware of reasons that have caused them to feel, think, and act, in ways that are troublesome. Gradually they find they are better able to have greater freedom to live life with pleasure and resiliency.
