Schema Therapy
Depth-Oriented Therapy for Personality Change

Schema Therapy is an evidence-based approach for long lasting change in the personality dynamics that impact chronic emotional and relationship problems. Schema Therapy places emphasis on identifying and resolving self-defeating life patterns and deeply rooted emotional themes, building resiliency and productive responses to life challenges, and drawing out and enabling the strong part of your personality.
