Message to clients
“We often feel that we have to deal with our struggles on our own, to shoulder the burden ourselves, and I think it can be a great relief to learn that there is no need for us to go it alone. Therapy provides an opportunity to express thoughts and feelings that may not otherwise see the light of day. Whether you are looking into therapy because you are feeling anxious or depressed, or because you find relationships difficult or unfulfilling, or because you are feeling the effects of trauma – it is my job to help you navigate unexplored parts of yourself and thus come to a better understanding of your place in the world. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental space in which we might foster a spirit of curiosity, empathy, and healing. I work psychoanalytically from a relational perspective, so I am particularly interested in learning how you relate to the people in your life, and how certain patterns have evolved, and then helping you to develop a way forward.”

Psychoanalytic TherapyPsychoanalytic therapy tends to look at experiences from early childhood to see if these events have affected the individual’s life, or potentially contributed to current concerns. This form of therapy is considered a long-term choice and can continue for weeks, months or even years depending on the depth of the concern being explored. Psychoanalytic therapy aims to make deep-seated changes in personality and emotional development. (learn more)
