Psychodynamic Therapy

It is often the case that present-day problems are a consequence of difficult events experienced while growing up in your family of origin. Examples include parents who were always fighting, a parent who was absent or neglectful, physical or sexual abuse, alcoholism by one or both parents or a parent who was verbally abusive or shaming. Any of these stressors (and others), experienced while growing up can deeply impact you in your present-day relationships (promoting chaotic interactions or difficult communication), and can often be traced as the cause of alcohol and drug problems, anxiety or depression. A psychodynamic approach is essentially a way to uncover the underlying causes of current problem states through discussion, analysis and problem solving. A review of your personal history is often an important component of this therapeutic approach.
