As a therapist, my view is that therapy is the result of relationship building, establishing a genuine alliance with each other so you can make healthy choices. Being present-focused together in our therapy session, you are welcome to express yourself without judgment, without criticism, without worry. I support you by validating your lived experience, past and present. I empathize with your challenges and your impediments by seeing you and witnessing your struggles. By active listening I reflect what you share with me nudging you to consider areas of your life that you might be overlooking.

Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed, or stressed, or just not like yourself? Are you feeling frustrated in your relationships? Sometimes messages or experiences from the past, faulty beliefs, or challenging relationships keep us stuck and out of touch with our well- being. Couples are helped when each has an opportunity to feel heard, and when early attachment styles and emotions underlying the problem can be better understood.

Fuller awareness removes the fear of the unknown, gives us distance from distress and the ability to disconnect from automatic behaviors that perpetuate negative reactions and feelings.

Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to conditioned fear and pain and self -limiting beliefs, we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and natural creative power.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Lafayette, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
