The goal of therapy is personal growth built on trust, honesty, respect, and care. It is not a mechanical process like going to a doctor and getting a diagnosis and medication. Therapy is somewhat haphazard; only by talking about everything can we ever find out what’s really on our minds and in our hearts.
Therapy is not something you believe in or not, it’s an experience that can change one’s life. Therapy involves a person who is willing to find out about him or herself, despite the fact that the exploration of feelings and memories can be difficult and painful. Staying the course in therapy takes personal strength; it not a place where one comes to just complain about one’s life.
Therapy can help broken hearts find some healing and lost dreams find expression. This is the kind of therapy I have tried to bring to my practice of forty years for individuals, adolescents and couples. Does therapy take time and is it somewhat costly? Yes, as is usually the case with anything serious in life. When therapy is successful, it changes an individual’s experience of life.
