How does therapy work?

How psychotherapy works is somewhat of a mystery.  People often wonder, “Can I really benefit from just talking to someone?”

The truth is relationships impact us and often times more than we realize. Many of our earliest relationships still influence us today in ways that are detrimental to our sense of well being.  The lasting effects of these early relationships can lead to depression, addiction, self-harm, issues with self-worth, and anxiety.

In psychotherapy the client has a corrective emotional experience with the therapist.  This corrective emotional experience relies heavily on the co-created relationship between a client and his or her therapist.  These experiences facilitate personal development and self awareness which often promotes individual growth, healing, and wholeness.
