Being truly heard, seen, and accepted is incredibly powerful.
Therapy offers a space for that experience
A Relational & Emotion-Focused Approach
A relational approach to psychotherapy focuses on building a trusting and connective therapeutic relationship so that clients feel a sense of safety when they begin to process the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that feel overwhelming to process on their own. At the heart of this therapeutic philosophy is the deep belief that healing happens within relationships, not within aloneness; a strong therapeutic relationship is an essential part of meaningful therapy. Yes, insight and skills are important, but it is warmth, care, and acceptance that first create the stable foundation needed for healing and growth.
So much of how we feel, think, and react is based in unconscious processes and patterns that are just trying their best to keep us safe. When we can't see or understand these processes, we can feel stuck in the same (often self-defeating or distressing) patterns. By understanding these patterns and, in time, appreciating them, we open up an incredible capacity to change and choose a different way of being.
Therapy is rarely a "quick fix" or "feel better" option; it's more often an uncomfortable and reflective process that progresses in non-linear ways. At the exact same time, it's often a tremendous relief to release heavy emotions and have someone truly see, appreciate, and validate you. Progress can be both hard and deeply liberating!
