Why Psychotherapy?

Why Psychotherapy?

The Primary Goals of Psychotherapy Are:

  1. To know yourself better.
  2. To learn to become more authentic in your life, with yourself, and with others.
  3. To learn to shift from emotional pain to your true self.
  4. To understand how your values can anchor your behaviors.
  5. Establish more effective coping mechanisms.
  6. To learn from the past and what you want for the future.
  7. Learn to become more effective in your life by becoming more emotionally and socially intelligent.
  8. To heal from pain and unfold toward a better place in your life.

We all come from dysfunctional families of some sort. As a result, we all have some emotional pain from the past that often gets in the way of living a more authentic life.  If you are struggling with emotional pain, perhaps talking about it and working on practical solutions, may help you to heal.
