Why choose an Existential Therapeutic approach?
Existential Counseling addresses the feeling sense of dissatisfaction in one’s life that often manifests as anxiety, depression, anger, despair, shame, or frustration. These feelings are indicators of something deeper at work that needs attending in an environment that is safe and caring, with dignity and respect, and with competence.
Existential Counseling uses an integrated approach that allows for a spontaneous and creative interaction and exploration of your concerns and difficulties during the therapeutic work together. This approach is grounded in fundamental therapeutic modalities that include Jungian psychology, existential analysis, cognitive behavioral therapy, logotherapy, family systems, and depth psychology. Therapeutic sessions may include reviewing dreams, tapping into creative aspects that have been dormant, being present to shadow aspects, discerning a path for navigating the practical issues in life, and learning new skills and insights for managing interpersonal relationships. These sessions may also investigate what might be calling you to bring more meaning and purpose in your life while addressing what may be obstructing that calling.
