NOTHING CHANGES IF NOTHING CHANGES
Deb Yeager, LCSW, CST
The goal of psychotherapy is increased awareness. The less aware we are of our motives, feelings, thoughts, actions, and perceptions, the more they control us and the more we stay stuck in old patterns that don’t work anymore. Change lies in discovering and incorporating into our constant, every day consciousness what is being avoided, covered up, distracted from, or indirectly acted out in symptoms....anxiety, anger, lack of motivation, etc. Sometimes, the focus of treatment is not just symptom relief, but a general increase in contentment, power, freedom, perspective and happiness.
