PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY

Psychodynamic Therapy focuses on addressing the foundation and formation of psychological processes in order to alleviate a client's symptoms and improve overall life satisfaction. Psychodynamic Therapy works with individuals to review emotions, thoughts, and early-life experiences and cognitions in order to gain insight on how a client's past has an effect on present day problems. The psychodynamic process evaluates patterns that have developed over time and helps in the recognization of recurring patterns in order to help the client work through problems related to how they approach situations and the world. The psychodynamic process works with the client to take steps to change patterns, such as negative coping mechanisms or avoidance behaviors.
