I have a deep conviction about the importance and value of therapy, of taking the time to know your inner world and understand what may underlie symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, or repetitive problematic behavior, such as repeated failed relationships. Psychodynamic or psychoanalytic therapy approaches are particularly helpful in bringing to awareness such underlying patterns and their origins, so that it is then possible to change them. All types of life problems and diagnoses respond well to these approaches.
