Psychodynamic Therapy
Psychodynamic therapy focuses on self-awareness of the patient's actions and behaviors. Psychodynamic therapy is like CBT in that it works to understand how beliefs, thoughts, behavior, and emotions are interconnected. However, it focuses on the unconscious beliefs and emotions that tend to trigger the negative thoughts, emotions, and behavior, rather than conscious, automatic thoughts that occur in initial reaction to situations.

I haven't had Grace for too long to give a thorough review, but so far she has been superb in checking in on my frequently, even when I do nothing to prompt her doing so. It makes me believe she genuinely thinks about her clients daily and cares about how they are doing outside of her paid time. I really appreciate her so far

Grace has been a wonderful support to my child. I am confident that her guidance is thoughtful and effective. Grace is also very committed to communicating with me without infringing on my child’s privacy. Grace has gone above and beyond to support us through some really difficult times. I am so grateful to have found her!
