Personal Growth

Do you feel like you lack the skills and insights to realize and maximize your potential in life? Your personal growth encompasses of all aspects of yourself, including the feelings your have about yourself and how you live your life. Personal growth is a lifelong process and there is no single way to achieve it. All therapists will help you to achieve some measure of personal development, but a mental health professional specializing in personal growth will specifically focus on facilitating your journey to attaining what is truly important to you. Exploring personal growth can be particularly helpful in developing a healthy and realistic sense of self-esteem. 

Local Experts in Personal Growth

It\'s said that \'if you aren\'t growing, you are dying\'. Making changes in our lives and seeking more for ourselves in meaningful ways is necessary yet sadly too rare. It seems society and mainstream culture want us to accept distraction and hollow connection in place of genuine experience. Strive for more and learn ways to define your value, meaning, and the path to more from your life.

Many of us have things we would like to see improve in our lives, like moving beyond survival or recovery to finding our personal best. Each of us have a different starting point and seeing growth in our lives is a very individual process. We may use a wide range of techniques to help you live and age well focusing on achieving a state of fulfillment.

My personal and professional life reflects a deep commitment to learning and growth. I believe our fears, habits of mind, and our history can keep us prisoners of the past and future. My training in attachment theory, family of origin theory and practice , meditation, focusing, and embodied life give me the tools and help I need to help you.

I believe everyone can benefit from therapy. Self-study can illuminate patterns of behavior and thinking that have been holding you back from a more satisfying life. I believe that you can transform the beliefs that have limited your internal experience and your relationships and you can learn more fulfilling ways of interacting with the world.

If you are looking to increase your insight and become more real, more present in your life, we might be a good fit for each other. I'm passionate about growth work!

My experience teaching philosophy for nearly 15 years has given me the experience of shepherding hundreds of students through the personal growth associated with intellectual development and the cultivation of self-examination and reflection.

Do you desire a deeper sense of pleasure in your life? It can feel risky, even scary, to acknowledge that you want to experience more joy, connection, and awareness. During therapy, you have the opportunity to learn more about who you are, your relationship to yourself and others, and to create healthy changes. You are incredibly brave for choosing to pursue a more spectacular life.

As an existential/humanistic counselor I really enjoy working with individuals exploring personal growth. I have also completed certificate training in Gestalt therapy, which can be another method to help folks self-actualize and get to know who they truly are.

Integral psychotherapy takes in to account the personal, social, and environmental factors that contribute to sustainable personal growth. I also utilize Enneagram Personality resources to help harmonize an individual's clinical work with the unique dynamics of their sense of self.

Personal growth is a term that encompasses something unique for every person. A fundamental assumption of depth psychology is that the psyche tends toward expression and vitality throughout the life-span, and coming to therapy for something along the lines of 'personal growth' may be a good sign that a part of your personality is ready to be lived more fully.

I support you in creating goals that re-connect you with what fulfills you, and in choosing actions that allow you to realize them.

Personal growth is a lifetime process.

Stagnation can occur in any sphere of life: social, marital, spiritual, career, or otherwise. Counseling can help rejuvenate these areas and bring greater satisfaction and fulfillment.

Trusting the process and embracing our power in any situation can help us grow. This is courage and it walks with us at all times. Sometimes its a little harder to see. I help you find that courage.

It is my pleasure to work with individuals on personal growth through self-awareness, acceptance and a commitment to their unique gifts and personality. Using client-centered, solution-focused therapy in conjunction with my unique use of breathwork, mindfulness and contemplation of life patterns and results, I will help you transform your relationship with yourself.

I often like to relate personal growth to trees. In order to grow trees need to be in the right environment, with the proper soil, water, and light to grow. Sometimes trees need to shed their branches so they can reach new heights. I work with you to help identify your values, strengths, and grounding so you can grow towards your light.

Not everyone who seeks therapy is in a state of crisis or pain. Personal growth and the desire to live a life of purpose, happiness and connection are equally valid pursuits in therapy.

My training in the Recreation of Self Model has provided me with a lens and an approach to working with growth and I love doing so!

Our own beliefs about ourselves, and our place in the world often hinder us from making positive changes. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear in general can keep us stuck in unhealthy patterns which we often can't distinguish from healthy ones.

I enjoy working with adults undergoing life transitions, whether it be personal, professional, social or spiritual. We examine value systems and explore whether they match up with action.

Working towards personal growth and wellness is an excellent reason to enter into therapy. Often times we get so busy in our daily lives, that we forget to put aside time to explore these important themes. I support people in identifying and exploring their own strengths, values and spiritual beliefs in order to live full and healthy lives. This process can begin at any time and at any age.

Sometimes, we just feel stuck. What if we \'checked all the boxes\' and still don\'t feel happy or fulfilled? What if we didn\'t. There are various life events - birthdays, marriages, birth of a child, layoffs, death of a parent, divorce - that can make us pause and reflect, \'What now?\' Therapy can help us discover our answers.

As a Personal Growth Specialist, I view the human condition as a giant opportunity to keep expanding awareness and exercising creativity to meet challenges.

A personal growth approach can make even the most difficult times more meaningful.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing yourself grow and transform into a person you care for, cherish and be proud of no matter what your experience may be at any moment of your life.

For lasting impact, I have found the foundation of personal growth must be the fostering of a deep sense of worthiness exactly as one is. Although a commonly-held belief, self-judgment and self-criticism do not motivate us to do better; they keep us stuck in the very patterns we seek to avoid. Only when we learn to let go of unhelpful narratives about who we are can we realize our full potential.

In the end, all therapy focuses on personal growth. Very often our complaints stem from some fundamental unwillingness to grow. Childhood wounding leaves us hoping for a parental figure (or lover) to fill a void in our lives. The maturity that comes from looking at and facing our lives and the disappointments in our lives and taking responsibility for moving forward is a life-long process.

What task is greater than personal growth while in the adolescent & young adult phases of life? It emerges quite naturally as a focus during all my work with young people.

We are perpetually healing, growing and learning, but sometimes the process gets stuck. How many times have you said to yourself, 'There's got to be more to life than this?'

I look forward to sharing what I know and asking you the important questions that will stimulate change and growth.

Much of our personal growth is limited by our conditioning / templates that we have created or that were created for us. To reach our potential, we need to examine the conditioning / templates and break free from them.
