"As a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst I strongly believe each person has the potential to overcome inner conflict in order to experience contentment and happiness. However, people often are unable to overcome negative emotions in their lives and relationships because they don’t truly understand themselves. Childhood experiences and our family background are powerful influences in shaping who we become as adults -- significantly influencing our career, friendship, and romantic relationship choices. Psychotherapy can provide the key to understanding and ultimately overcoming the obstacles to achieve a fulfilling life whether alone or with a significant other."

""Why can't you open up to me?" "Don't you understand how I feel?" It sounds like a broken record in your relationships. Growing up, your household didn't provide many opportunities to talk openly about your feelings. You weren't exactly shut down when you were excited, angry, or sad, but expected to keep it together, to keep your big feelings to yourself. This was the norm in your family and grew up with little practice recognizing the way you felt, much less how to discuss your emotions. Now, as an adult- relationships haven't lasted long, or they feel empty. Partners complained about a lack of empathy, but how do you fix it quick?"

When life becomes overwhelming & there seems like nowhere else to turn, therapy can be a helpful option. To some, therapy seems scary, uncomfortable, strange, or even stigmatizing. But overall, it takes courage to seek help or to make a change.
