Are You Struggling With Personal Growth?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Personal Growth

Personal growth is a common goal for people in therapy, regardless of whether they have a specific mental health diagnosis. Personal growth looks different for everyone. Some people may have specific goals. Others may want to heal from trauma. Others desire clarity in their emotional states. Whatever the reason, mental health professionals help empower people to grow in ways that work for them.

Available Treatment Options

Therapist interventions for personal growth may include encouraging change by asking questions and examining motivation and needs, encouraging the person to look deeply into themselves to discover needs and desires, and offering support for accomplishing goals.
