Psychotherapist in San Francisco, CA
If you’ve recently experienced a loss, life transition, or upset in your daily routine, it’s possible that you feel uncertain about the future. Abrupt changes in life may have led to exacerbated fear and worry as you attempt to navigate strange and unfamiliar territory. Anxiety is a natural response to life. And in therapeutic treatment, you can begin to understand the source and function of your anxiety so that it’s no longer creating unmanageable problems in your world.
While there are many different ways to treat trauma and no one way is best, Trauma therapy at Brown Therapy Center, like most depth-oriented treatments, is relational and built upon the foundation of the therapeutic relationship. For treatment to be successful, you need a space where you can feel comfortable sharing more of what’s happening on the inside with someone you trust, who listens and can help you hold and digest your experience.
Because there is likely an injured relationship at the core of your emotional pain, our clinicians believe that the therapeutic relationship itself is what will help heal your wounds. Therapy allows you to be in a safe space with a nonjudgmental and empathetic “other” who—by either contrast or reflection—will ultimately allow you to better see and understand yourself. With this clarity, you will be given an opportunity to gain meaningful insight into the source of your depression.
Our therapists are here to listen and create space for you in a way that facilitates deep insight and healing. We welcome your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, relationships, dreams, and life stories. By exploring the symbolic world from a psycho-spiritual perspective of soul-making, we can come to understand how the soul creates and expresses itself through images and symbols. The process can lead to a greater sense of self and a healthier, more fulfilling life.
We encourage you to view the therapeutic space as your “relational home,” where your experiences will be honored and held by our empathetic team of clinicians. Our goal is to collaborate to help you make meaning of your story, ultimately searching for opportunities for relief and personal growth. By embracing what happens in the therapeutic relationship, valuable information is gained and is helpful in our understanding of you and your opportunities for growth and healing.
If you’re in a relationship that’s beginning to feel stale or unsatisfying, our therapists can work with you and your significant other to explore what’s not working. Rather than simply address surface-level conflicts, our goal is to go deeper. We want to explore the unconscious behavioral patterns that each of you brings to the table and look at how those patterns are fueling the conflict between you.
