PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY

BOOK A FREE PHONE CONSULTATION

Explore how your unconscious controls your daily life

Psychodynamic Therapy is one of the most traditional forms of therapy. It is based in the understanding that we are affected by unconscious needs and strategies, many of which are formed in childhood.

With Psychodynamic Therapy, you can discover new ways to talk about your feelings: including those that contradict each other, are troubling, are scary and feelings that you may not have recognized or acknowledged in the past.

This exploration accepts that even though you may have new words to explain an emotional difficulty, that doesn’t mean you have been “cured.” The idea is that by understanding your patterns, you get more control over how you respond to your life.

Most clinicians at Well Clinic use Psychodynamic Therapy as a foundation for your healing process, then build upon that with a variety of other integrated therapy techniques.

Do I need psychodynamic therapy?

If you are looking for a therapist, then you will most likely find yourself experiencing Psychodynamic Therapy.

In addition to focusing on your emotions, you will spend time recognizing and dealing with your defense mechanisms. You may also identify recurring — and previously unknown — patterns in your thoughts, feelings or behavior.

These patterns are often subtle and unknown to you, which is why it’s so important to find a good therapist.

What does Psychodynamic Therapy treat?

You may find Psychodynamic Therapy useful if you suffer from:

  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Communication troubles
  • Anxiety and fear
  • Low self-esteem
  • Inability to sustain feelings of pleasure or happiness
  • Self-destructive behavior
  • Lack of goals
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Physical issues that stem from a psychological origin

TESTIMONIALS

  • I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.

    Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.

  • Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.

    It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.

    Brianna S

  • Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.

    In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
