What is Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is an intentional interpersonal relationship used by trained psychotherapists to aid a client in the challenges of daily life. Psychotherapy aims to increase the individual’s sense of their own well-being. Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication, and behavior change that are designed to improve the mental health of a client.
Benefits of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy offers a number of benefits for the client. It is usually helpful to have somebody who really does understand you. Therapy may give the client a fresh perspective on a difficult problem and direct the client towards a solution. Benefits of psychotherapy include:
- Understanding yourself and your personal goals and values better.
- Developing skills for improving relationships.
- Overcoming certain problems, such as an eating disorder, depression, or anxiety.
- Obtaining a solution to the problems or concerns that made the client seek therapy.
I have been working with Nadia for a little over a year. She has an unspoken professional demeanor held within a casual atmosphere. I feel incredibly heard and seen in her presence and have never felt judged, analyzed or picked apart. Nadia is THE person to go to with your most sensitive areas, anything you would feel uncomfortable revealing because she holds the space to safely explore it for yourself, with guidance, to end in resolution and peace. She guides the way for you to do the work within yourself, and where appropriate offers suggestions if you feel stuck.
I had a traumatic birth experience and painful childhood memories that were weighing on me even as a healthy, well-educated, successful adult. I reached a point where I knew I needed peace and I knew I needed assistance to find my way through my “stuff” to find it. It is a journey, but with Nadia it’s in your own time, in your comfort level, as you are ready.
It has been a joy and a pleasure working with Nadia. I never knew therapy could be so much fun! I can see the progress in my life every time I walk in the door to her office and reflect on where I was, and how I felt in my skin the first time I came through. If you are ready to thrive in your life don’t be afraid of your dark corners, be glad there’s people like Nadia to share presence with while you call out the monsters under the bed, or the tensions in your home, or your problems with your family and kids, or anger at God. Whatever it may be, we all got and don’t need it! Do yourself this favor, you will be glad you did.
