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.

— Nancy Johnson, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Wellesley Hills, MA

Personal growth is a big topic! What does it mean? Well, we figure that out together. Whether you're looking to get a better grade on an exam, start or leave a relationship, change careers, completely revamp your self-identity, or work through large, confusing, and uncertain existential and philosophical questions, I'm here for it. I do not tell you what to do or how to think, but help you find those answers for yourself.

— Maxwell Rappoport, Clinical Psychologist in Sherman Oaks, CA
 

Helping people realize the potential within themselves is one of my passions in life. Whether you're looking to move up in your career, improve on a skill, reach a more complete level of acceptance, or want to explore a more abstract route in self-discovery, I am able to help. I have learned that a more hybrid role of coach and therapist is beneficial for facilitating personal growth.

— Robert Hinojosa, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Little Rock, AR

Therapy is one major way to have personal growth. Whether you want to tackle past trauma, manage present challenges or work on figuring a future that works for you, therapy can help. I do not come with an agenda, and I make sure we discuss what would be most important for you in the session. My approach is strength-based and client centered putting you in the driver’s seat. Together, we will work on your goals that leads to a fulfilling and thriving life.

— Avni Panchal, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oakland, CA
 

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.

— Robert Odell, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA

My graduate degree focus is on human development counseling. I feel competent in helping clients grow toward the best version of themselves, whomever that may be for them. I aim to empower clients to live authentically and holistically, thus allowing space for their personal growth to evolve.

— Ashley Pruitt, Licensed Professional Counselor
 

Who doesn't want to achieve personal growth? Personal growth creates the best sense of self possible which increases esteem and confidence. Too many times my clients say, "I feel stuck". "I feel I'm not where I should be at my age". "If I would have made different choices, I might not be where I'm at". These statements can cause feelings of shame and guilt which can lead to depression, anxiety, and self defeat.

— Heather Nemeth, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Western Springs, IL
 

Who doesn't want to grow? We all do. What does growth mean to you? What are you seeking to get from growth? We will explore these and other ideas as you seek to make the shifts you desire.

— Jag Soni, Clinical Psychologist in ,

I have worked for over a decade with clients to partner in helping them to develop their personal growth, move through their life span with intention, and transform their outcomes to ones that bring satisfaction and peace. I am focused on the whole self with or without the support of medication and working to sustain a balanced and healthy sense of mental well being.

— Shelly Quiles, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL
 

If you're trying to get from Point A to Point B, but aren't really sure how to make sense of the obstacles in your way or how get past them, I want to work with you. My deepest passion is helping people find their truest and most authentic selves. Some folks have a hard time believing that living authentically is even possible, and others aren't sure what "authentic" even looks like for them. Regardless, I'm here to help you through it.

— James Cochran, Licensed Professional Counselor in Leawood, KS

Sometimes we feel like we have greater potential than we're currently accessing, and I am here to help you identify what is stopping you from achieving what you want. Whether it is in a career, relationships, spirituality, or any other aspect of life I will hold up a mirror and ask you to take a look at what patterns are serving you and what patterns are not.

— Rachel Braun, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
 

I work with couples and individuals who value deep self-exploration and desire growth and healing. We will listen collaboratively to your story, explore the different parts of who you are and what has shaped you, and invite practices to strengthen your capacities, foster new insights, ease painful symptoms, and integrate past experiences.

We all long to be all we can be. In order to make the most of our lives, we need to be able to tap in, 100% honestly, to what we truly believe, and much of the time we need to break free of limiting beliefs. No matter how well we fit ourselves into molds that seem advantageous, if they are incompatible with who we are (an expansive and much-needed unique expression of something very infinite), we will pay dearly. What holds meaning for you and why you are here?

— Jen-Mitsuke Peters, Mental Health Counselor in Denver, CO

"Because you are alive, everything is possible" Thich Nhat Hanh- is a quote I had for my email signature for a long time. I think holding this sentiment with the framework of intersectionality is more of how I am oriented now as a person and therapist, but I don't have a short quote about that to use here yet.
