About this pro
In our contemporary society, it is easy to be content and even glad for medications that soothe symptoms, but healing comes from working through our underlying inner conflicts in a textured human relationship in which we can feel what we truly feel and become who we truly are. I believe distressful symptoms, whether depression, anxiety, anger, hurt, a sense of meaninglessness, a sense of emptiness, or addictions are signs. They are signs that it is time to become more than both whom we've grown accustomed to being and how we've grown accustomed to being with other people. Whether in person or by telephone or video conference, psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy are unique forms of psychotherapy. By working together, we will aim to understand the meaning of your emotional reactions, thoughts, memories, etc., so as to alleviate your distress and expand your capacity for work, love, and creativity. Therapy that aims at lasting change and growth involves a considerable investment of time and money. So, I offer a free initial consultation to encourage people to make this decision based on their personal experience.
