Existential Therapy

Existential therapy explores an individual’s struggles from a philosophical perspective. By focusing on free will, self-determination, and search for meaning, existential therapy emphasizes the person’s capacity to make rational choices and develop their maximum potential. Existential therapy uses retrospection to understand the implications of past decisions to help the person make more willful decisions instead of letting outside forces determine their behavior. Existential therapy is useful for people struggling with substance abuse, addiction disorders, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. It works with other forms of treatments, but it’s a long-term process.
