Personal Development is a Very Personal Journey
Therapy can help to uncover barriers and identify ways to better ourselves. If you are here, you are likely looking for a therapist to help navigate this process with you.
- Perhaps you think too much and get overwhelmed, while also struggling with roller coaster-like emotions.
- Or perhaps you are uninspired or stuck and your life is lacking motivation, spark and creativity.
- Or maybe you would like to communicate better so that your relationships can be more fulfilling and meaningful… or just plain better.
Even amidst the busyness of everyday life, maybe there’s a part of you that often thinks, “There must be more than this….”
Psychotherapy is “an intentional interpersonal relationship used by trained psychotherapists to aid in challenges of life. It aims to increase the individual’s sense of their own well-being.”
Unlike many of the more traditional, medical model forms of psychotherapy, SFBT believes that change happens not by identifying root causes or understanding the history of the problem, but by helping people to develop a clearer vision of how they want to be living their life in the present and future. Sometimes problems seem overwhelming and impossible to overcome, but SFBT recognizes that all people, regardless of their current situation bring with them strengths, resources and values that have helped them in the past. SFBT attempts to mobilize these resources to shift both attitudes and behavior. As an SFBT therapist my hope is that when people leave a session they feel energized and optimistic about what the future holds.
Therapy offers a safe place to explore and reconnect with yourself. The collaborative work between the client and therapist encourages a more open and honest look at your life. What patterns do you keep creating? What inner qualities do you possess and what do you want to cultivate? Asking these questions puts the ideas into personal awareness and can lead to a deeper fulfillment in life.
