“A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”
― Carl R. Rogers, Ph.D.
Psychotherapy can be invaluable in helping individuals live healthier and happier lives. There are several reasons why a person may seek out therapy, however, the underlying goal of therapy is to effect positive change in a person’s behaviors, emotions, and/or thoughts. Psychotherapy requires active participation by both the therapist and the client.
