Personal Growth

Personal growth, or personal development, takes place over the course of your entire life. As human beings, we are constantly learning lessons, changing and growing. Personal growth can refer to anything that improves or increases your awareness and identity, enhances your quality of life or contributes to the realization of your dreams and aspirations. There is no one way to achieve personal growth. However, successful personal growth typically requires motivation and a willingness to make changes. A qualified mental health therapist can help guide you on your journey. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s personal growth experts today.

Seeking therapy takes incredible courage. Although working on ourselves can be challenging at times, it can often be rewarding and lead to an improved feeling of wellness, and improvement in one's connection with others, and a general increase in satisfaction with life. Personal growth can look different for everyone. I avoid "one size fits all" approaches and do my best to provide support specific to you and your goals.

The one thing the majority of all of my clients present with is the desire to grow on a personal level. For years, I have successfully been able to help clients identify, problem solve, and work towards achieving whatever their goal might be, whether it is to gain work/life balance, gain a new set of skills, and/or add a new positive habit while replacing old habits that don't serve you. Together, we will sit back and watch you evolve as I listen, validate, and explore with you.

As described above, I take a firmly non-pathological view of my clients. This requires an 'ecologic' perspective that takes into account every aspect of a person's life. This is necessary to a complete and accurate assessment process. Human sexuality forms a key part of personality, and this connects directly to relational life, which is where adults continue to develop.

Therapy issues can help an individual, couple or family develop a better understanding of their personal strengths and desires; consider solutions to overcome challenges; and consider ways to approach a circumstance professionally and yet powerfully. Counseling can help access stress caused by work , environment, and practice skills to handle and reduce stress. Family Therapy can bring together those who work on relationship issues, set boundaries, and develop understanding if necessary.
