Psychologist, PhD, PsyBA Endorsed
Verified
I work with adults to support them with a range of issues relating to identity, mood, anxiety, emotional regulation and interpersonal issues. Using a developmental focus, I work with people to consider how challenges have developed and where they want to be in the future. A key part of my practice is affirming people's identities, whether this relates to neurodiversity, gender, sexuality, relationship types, race and/or other factors. This ensures that we build towards goals that are determined by the person and align with who they are.

Jesse W K Rantamaki
Psychotherapist
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy adheres to a case-by-case perspective. Namely, to the assumption that every individual is unique and requires a different course of treatment. The basic working hypothesis is that every analysis is different in its content, in its trajectory, in its frequency and duration. Through the act of free association one speaks freely about anything that comes to mind and engages the issues brought up in depth. The trajectory of treatment is directed by the speech of free association, along with the analyst's interpretations, toward the singular truth of one's symptoms and their subsequent alleviation.
