Modern psychology offers many different methods to help a person actualize their wills and desires [see previous post]. This is very important. People walk around so frustrated that their desires remain dormant in their souls and psyches and don't find proper expression.
But there is something that is often ignored by modern psychology - the purification of one's desires. A healthy person must want but it is not enought to merely want. WHAT do you want?? WHY do you want it?? The foundation of teshuva is purifying and elevating the will.
