What is Psychodynamic Therapy?

Psychodynamic Therapy has roots in psychoanalysis as developed by Sigmund Freud in the early 1900s. Similar to psychoanalysis, individuals meet face-to-face with the therapist and treatment is an interactive process between client and therapist. Both work together to address the unconscious motivation behind many of the emotions, behaviors and life-patterns that contribute to the client's depression or other emotional disorder.
