Dr. Brenner Individual Therapy - Sherman Oaks Individual Therapy - Los Angeles Individual Therapist

Psychotherapy is not a teaching session and it is not advice. It is an honest and serious search for what we do not see. The goal of psychotherapy is to acquire insight and clarity and set new priorities with renewed courage to implement change. A good way to think about psychotherapy -- is to consider: Does it foster insight? Insight is not pure learning in the intellectual sense of remembering facts. It is the capacity to gain a deep and intuitive understanding of others and oneself. It is the ability to understand the why of behavior.

Once you know the ‘why’, the ‘how’ follows. Within this model, insight must always be at the heart of all therapeutic sessions.
