Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy is an in-depth form of talk therapy based on the theories and principles of psychoanalysis.  Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are a client’s self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior. A psychodynamic approach enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships and manifest themselves in current behaviors.
