Tori Olds, a therapist at Deep Eddy Psychotherapy in Austin, TX, talks about how therapy is not just about solving problems or working out issues—it’s about continually growing and reaching for more.
Therapy Is Doing Something That Is Growth Producing
I’m a therapist, and I’ll be in therapy my whole life. I think every therapist, but also every person, should be doing something that’s growth producing.
We are Never Fully Cooked
We can always grow, we are never fully cooked, we always have more to go, we always have more to learn. That’s something I’ve really discovered. The journey keeps continuing and continuing.
It might start with, how do I get from anxious to not anxious? But then what about to just being a better person? Someone more capable of compassion, or a little stronger? Maybe I’m looking to free up a little creativity.
Even Healthy People Can Continue to Grow
We all have lots of issues, so even pretty healthy people, who may feel they have a good handle on life, can still continue growing. It’s like growing a craft. If you’re a musician, you probably are always learning something new, or one way to improve it, or one way to expand your knowledge. You do something new in your next film or song or something like that because there’s always more to explore.
Exploring What It Means to Be Human in Therapy
I think there’s something more to explore in terms of what it is to be human, and how to be human, and how to have the most creative, fresh, in-the-moment and sort of capable inner state. That is something that can always keep going forever. I don’t know if there’s ever a time where we stop.
