Therapy Orlando FL

Therapy Orlando FL

Therapy Orlando FL, also is referred to as psychotherapy or called counseling. It is meeting with a therapist to attempt to resolve behaviors that are causing you problems. These stem from individualissues, (depression, anxiety, grief), Family, relationship and marriage issues, spiritual or life coaching and much more. Starting therapy is a big step to becoming the healthiest version of you. It’s learning to live the best possible life and work through challenges holding you back. Your able to change and challenge self-destructive habits and those behaviors that cause fear, pain and create negative emotions.

All therapist are different but have mainly the same goal. To help you find the relief and solution to trouble areas you are facing. The idea is to establish reachable goals and show you how to take the steps to reach them.

Therapy is personal and confidential. You develop a relationship and trust in your therapist. How you disclose and share your problems and specific issues is just as important as dealing with those issues as well.

Understanding the process and also warning signs of those therapist that may not be a good fit is also important. You want someone who is supportive yet will challenge you. For me, my approach is one that is collaborative and challenges your thinking, actions and thought patterns. It is not my job to be your friend. In fact there are times that you will be frustrated with me because I may “hold the line” or combat those ideas and beliefs you hold so strongly to.
