You will feel the importance of your experience as we work through the issues that bring you into therapy or psychoanalysis. The work in the therapeutic relationship is an essential part of what enables freedom from restrictive or impulsive life patterns and relationships.
This may be a time of familiar or new distress or dissatisfaction in life. Perhaps you (or you and your spouse) are in a position to address and understand these recurring feelings of unhappiness, anxiety, irritability or emptiness. You might be engaging in risky job changes, infidelity or neglecting your health. You may be isolating yourself or feel overwhelmed by your family responsibilities. I am a licensed psychologist and certified psychoanalyst. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis allow for a deeper look at recurring dysfunctional patterns that hinder relationships, professional success and contentment in life. I work with individuals, couples, families and teens. After working with individuals, couples and families for 25 years, I have found that knowing oneself is much harder to do than people think. Once the self-understanding is gained and feelings flow more comfortably, the natural creativity, happiness and connectedness to others occurs effortlessly.
