If you are feeling unable to be the way you want to be, because you're depressed, anxious, too aggressive, too shy, can't concentrate, can't sleep, or have relationship difficulties, I would like to help you. I bring 30+ years of working with people who have struggled with such issues. In addition, as a faculty member of the University of Michigan Medical School Department of Psychiatry and the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, I have taught courses in the treatment of anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships, and treatment of adult survivors of childhood abuse, for which I have received teaching awards.

Psychotherapy, if done well, provides participants with the gift of self-understanding. That self understanding, I have found, comes from the experience of being listened to and understood by a sensitive and knowledgeable therapist. But in addition, psychotherapy needs to practically address problems. I have extensive training in contemporary psychoanalytic approaches, which allows me to help patients understand themselves more deeply; often this produces profound changes. But when problems require practical techniques, I integrate aspects of cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and humanistic approaches.

In addition to my private psychotherapy practice, I teach and supervise psychotherapists, psychoanalytic candidates, and other clinicians.
The individuals, couples, and families with whom I work are interested in understanding and addressing not only certain specific emergent problems such as those associated with adjustment and relationship difficulties, depression, and anxiety, but also the underlying thoughts, feelings, and behavioral and relational patterns that have contributed to the development of these problems. Through a collaborative, empathic process, these individuals, couples, and families are able to expand and utilize their skills, strengths, and self-understanding in order to live more meaningful and rewarding lives.

I am a graduate of The Juilliard School, University of Michigan, and The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute.
As you will note on www.julienagel.net, I work with performance anxiety but also with career decisions, life transitions, depression, general anxiety, and relationship issues. We live in complex times with many unknowns. Many people are finding it difficult to feel secure, self-confident, and productive in their jobs and in meaninful relationships. Anxiety and multiple stressors can interfere with your personal life and professional goals. I will empathetically assess your specific concerns and discuss effective treatment options that can both enhance self-esteem and help you to problem solve. With a background in music and psychology, I believe that music lessons have taught me life lessons. I appreciate the strengths you bring to understanding yourself better and your courage to reach out and make a phone call for assistance. I look forward to helping you discover your life lessons and to use them to unblock obstacles and enhance self-esteem .

I edit the journal, Psychoanalytic Social Work, and have published 15 books.
I am often contacted by clients unable to derive pleasure from their daily lives. At times, these problems are clearly linked to anxiety, depression, or to inner conflicts. However, at other times, clients are not able to point to specific symptoms, but rather are troubled by a vague sense of dissatisfaction that complicates relationships, work life, or their ability to be successful in school or in other pursuits. Previous attempts to solve these problems through the use of medications or by focusing on behavior or cognitions have proven less than satisfactory, and have led to an interest in trying insight-oriented psychotherapy.

With a background in cognitive behavioral and advanced psychoanalytic approaches, I work intensively with each person to address the problems he/she is facing.
Something is motivating you to consider psychotherapy. Maybe you are feeling depressed, sad, anxious or too angry. The first hard and essential step is calling someone. With 30+ years of experience, the most helpful things are usually not dramatic, but instead small, steady changes that can lead to significant relief of painful feelings. It can mean the difference between a close intimate relationship or a satisfying job situation. Understanding and removing internal obstacles to your progress and becoming more flexible with yourself and others are some of the hallmarks of a successful psychotherapy.

Also I recieved an education in adult Psychoanalysis and graduated from the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute.
Generally, each person and I begin by exploring the issues that has brought them to seek out my services. This exploration entails a joint effort that unfolds over time. A relationship is formed that helps us both to see more clearly how the individual is operating in their everyday life. It is through such an exploration that the individual begins to understand themselves, and, especially, their more intimate relating. I also believe that the person leads the treatment such that we will only go as far as each person desires. I can offer ideas, but, in the end, it is the individual who leads us.

I supervise in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan, and I teach at the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute.
My approach begins with a sensitive and empathic understanding of what brought you to seek help. Then, we will discuss what approach would be best suited to you. I welcome people from all backgrounds--regardless of race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, or religion. People I work with tend to want to understand the roots of the feelings or symptoms that trouble them, so that they can become more resilient to life's challenges. When it is practiced to its fullest potential, therapy engages deeply with your whole self, so that you can make profound and sustainable changes in your life.

I graduated from the University of Michigan School of Social Work in 1989 and finished post-graduate psychoanalytic training from the Michigan Council for Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis in 2011.
"I saw the angel in the marble and chisled until I set him free." (Michelangelo). I see psychotherapy as being like this-most people have it within them to know what they need or want, but something has kept them from feeling free to live life to the fullest. Most people come to see me when they are feeling that important parts of their lives (love, work or play) feel disappointing or "stuck." The "chisling" in therapy is you and I together discovering what is holding you back and identifying so many more choices than it may feel that you have now.

I teach psychoanalysis and supervise at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan and at the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute.
You might feel anxious, or depressed. You want to change but you feel stuck, unable to move forward. You might be unhappy with aspects of yourself, or your relationships, but you do not know what to change, how to change. You might suffer because of trauma, or for a loss that feels too hard to bear. Talking to a therapist can help. If you decide to meet with me, my first goal will be to connect with you, and help you feel understood. Working from this connection, I will try to help you understand more of yourself, and know how to change using the therapeutic techniques most appropriate for your characteristics and needs.

The Mel Bornstein Clinic for Psychotherapy
Psychologist, MD, PhD, MSW, MA, MS
Verified
Once affiliated with the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, the Mel Bornstein Clinic is now a free-standing clinic accepting select insurances.
Skill, experience and kindness are qualities many seek in a therapist. When you are suffering with personal problems, you want to know that you will be heard and understood in ways that will help you find ways to expand your own self-understanding. A good therapist - the right therapist for you - is one who can "think together" with you to help find new solutions to old problems. The Mel Bornstein Clinic for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy was established upon a 60-year tradition of offering just this kind of help.

My treatment approach focuses on modalities that suit each person including: psychodynamic, psychoanalytic , CBT, family systems, and others.
Empathy is the foundation of our work together. As a psychotherapist, I listen attentively to understand your emotions and your life challenges. Our therapeutic work will help you feel more fully alive by processing and understanding your emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. Your past often creates pain and suffering leaving scars that affect your present emotions and relationships. My goal is to help you recognize these challenges that make you feel overwhelmed and stuck. I will help you rework your thoughts and feelings to free you from the burden of the past and inspire you for the future.

I am also currently involved in the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, which helps me to develop a critical understanding in the root causes of a client`s personal issues.
We all are facing challenging situations in our lives, however it can be tremendously helpful if we have a therapist who can provide a trusting relationship in order to resolve those difficult moments. As a therapist, I can support and help clients with an objective and wider perspective. Given my previous clinical experiences of more than 15 years as a medical doctor and psychiatrist in South Korea, I am able to diagnose and approach mental health issues in the best scientific way possible by using a psychiatric knowledge base.

It is wonderful that you decided to begin the process of finding a therapist. I think that it is vital that you find someone that is a good fit for you. It is important to create an environment that is free of judgment so that you can feel safe expressing yourself. The way we form our identity is complex, many roles play a factor including our environment, family history, current relationships, and lifestyle. Through the journey of life, events both positive and painful help to mold us. The path of healing and exploration into yourself can lead to a stronger, happier, healthier you.
