The world around us shapes the world within us and our ways of being with one another. When you begin to understand your life story and find value in even the most difficult times you've encountered, the world can become a place of freedom and possibility.
In therapy we might talk about love, loss, guilt, relationships, fear, anxiety, and sadness. We may explore the post traumatic impacts of abuse and neglect in early life, a crisis in the present, or concerns about the future. I am interested in helping my patients discover their own ways of living, ways that are true to their values and respectful of the life experiences they have had.
I treat patients in once or twice per week psychotherapy, or three or more session per week psychoanalysis. Contemporary relational psychoanalysis is an in-depth treatment for those wishing to understand themselves and their relationship patterns in a profound way, and to live more conscious lives.
