Personal Growth

Personal growth, or personal development, takes place over the course of your entire life. As human beings, we are constantly learning lessons, changing and growing. Personal growth can refer to anything that improves or increases your awareness and identity, enhances your quality of life or contributes to the realization of your dreams and aspirations. There is no one way to achieve personal growth. However, successful personal growth typically requires motivation and a willingness to make changes. A qualified mental health therapist can help guide you on your journey. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s personal growth experts today.

Personal growth is a term that covers a lot of ground. For me, it's a deeply held value and a way of living life. I believe that each of us has the capacity throughout our lives to move toward more satisfaction in life, and this often involves growth and change. If you're interested in not only moving through what you're facing, but also in learning and growing from it, I'd like to work with you.

I believe in growth, not change. I help my clients learn about themselves so they can learn and understand their feelings and needs. Then I help them learn how to request what they need from themselves and others. I help clients discover their true and authentic selves so they can move thru the world with confidence and self-love.

— Melissa Gaber, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Lakeway, TX

I believe that one of the most valuable purposes of life is for us to grow. With our eyes wide open, we can grow by learning to know ourselves thoroughly, facing the truth of our own natures without fear nor shame. Through this deep awareness, we can create a strong foundation of humble self-confidence, which guides us in our intentions and actions. Grounded in knowing who we truly are, we also become capable of nourishing others, and can offer our best to the world.

We will identify what has you stuck and develop strategies to move forward. If something in your life is not working, we will work together to find solutions and to do something different that does work. Together we will work to use your strengths and God-given talents to become your best you.

Do you feel there is just something missing that you want to explore or express but your fear is getting in the way? I can relate and I can help. There is so much for us to continually discover and explore in skills, new creativity, new ways of being...we must be willing to play in order to grow. Learning through play is not just for children. I study Winnecott's work around growing through continually exploring life with a sense of newness and play.

Wanting to understand oneself better; advice from others just isn't helping. Wanting to build overall psychological well-being.

— Dallas Jensen, Psychologist in Salt Lake City, UT

I believe we all have room for personal growth. Maybe there are patterns that are running your life that have you feeling stuck? Some common sticking points are conflict avoidance, low emotional regulation, tolerating making mistakes, aka being self critical, or an inability to let go of the past. I can help you to unlearn these patterns by aiding you in identifying them, guiding you in exploring the emotional wounds causing them, and presenting actionable strategies to create change.

— Tara Pratt, Counselor in San Francisco, CA
