Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in the client’s present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are client self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior. In its brief form, a psychodynamic approach enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from early childhood and past dysfunctional relationships. These inner conflicts often manifest in negative thought patterns and behaviors that do not serve the client well. Raising the unconscious to a conscious awareness, aids clients in making more congruent choices that are aligned with the clients values, beliefs and current realities, resulting in happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
