Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Many approaches to therapy focus primarily on relieving symptoms. While these therapies are effective at alleviating symptoms, they often do not address the underlying issues that led to the symptoms developing. Oftentimes, the symptoms will return or a new set of symptoms will develop from the same unresolved issues. The approach Daniel McCracken takes addresses both the symptoms and the underlying issues to facilitate a deeper level of growth.

The particular style of depth psychotherapy provided, which can be brief, is a blend of existential and relationally oriented psychodynamic therapy, with the tenants that:

All people are valued as unique individuals!

people desire to be in relationships. Part of the process of therapy is to help people develop more satisfying and enriching relationships.

The relationship between the client and therapist is an essential part of the healing and growth process.

People have within themselves a potential for healing and growth.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
