I believe that each of us feels most alive and fulfilled when actively pursuing the genuine expression of one's self. My role as therapist is to assist you in attaining this expression. Many symptoms such as depression, anxiety or self-destructiveness, arise when one is not acting in accordance with one's authentic self. Therapy will help identify what blocks this self-expression and gently challenge you toward greater self knowledge. We'll work together to identify your unique path toward self realization.

I help individuals realize their potential, whether it is in a spiritual direction or in motivation to perform better in life. The underlying principles are the same. I work in a "positive psychology" format, which means that there is often more focus on one's existing strengths, instead of on some deficit or illness. I help people look at the workings of the mind, and to improve through specific exercises and homework. The ideal client is one who recognizes that they feel stuck and is willing to take the necessary actions to begin moving forward.

Inside, however, you’re feeling lost, out of touch and disconnected from yourself. Maybe your anxiety is causing you to lose sleep, or you find yourself isolating from friends and family because of depression. Maybe you're covering all of this up with drugs, alcohol or other risky behaviors. You’re not entirely sure how you got here but you know something needs to change.

Psychoanalytic Therapists

Does psychoanalytic therapy work?

Psychoanalytic therapy derives from the work of Sigmund Freud. In this type of therapy, discovering buried thoughts and emotions from the unconscious will help a person work through their difficulties and negative behaviors. Research shows that psychoanalytic therapy can be highly effective, with patients reporting improvement in mood, quality of life, and overall well-being.

How long are people typically in psychoanalytic therapy?

Traditional psychoanalysis is in-depth and is conducted in five sessions every week. Today, modern psychoanalytic therapy is less intense and normally incorporates as few as one or two sessions a week. In some cases, positive change can occur quickly. However, if the condition, difficulty, or behavior is deep-seated, improvement may require many months or years of therapy.

Is psychoanalytic therapy suitable for young people?

Children and adolescents can benefit from this type of therapy. Many kids and teens are often unable to form and communicate their thoughts and emotions. Psychoanalytic therapy uses specific techniques such as dream analysis, symbolism, and free association or word association; all of which can be useful tools for less-communicative young people. Through this therapy, a patient will hopefully make connections between what they feel inside and how the world works outside.

Can psychoanalytic therapy be done online?

Modern-day psychoanalytic therapy is very different from traditional psychoanalysis. While an individual can sit face-to-face with the psychoanalyst for multiple sessions a week, they do not have to. Today, psychoanalytic therapy can be effectively conducted online or by phone. The key is that the individual confronts what is repressed and avoided, and this can be done whether in person or over online video.
