Clients enter therapy for many different reasons. Some want help with a specific problem, transition, relationship or managing crisis. Others wish to explore long-standing patterns that have held them back from living the life they desire. Or perhaps they may be seeking greater clarity about thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and experiences. Psychotherapy can help you untangle the often complex reasons or situations that are posing problems in your life. That can mean staying focused in the present, or it could mean revisiting the past. Frequently a combination of the two is helpful. Developing insight into the roots of current struggles can be invaluable, especially when combined with making tangible changes in current thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
