How are you dealing with the many losses in life? The loss of a loved person, your health, a companion animal, relationships, a job, sense of self. Most of us are taught to not pay attention to loss and feelings of sadness. Yet, ignoring or pushing away waves of loss can compound the difficult feelings, making them bigger. This often means that the losses begin to control us. My practice centers on how to work with your losses directly and indirectly and find in them a source of richness and direction. I also offer practical strategies for navigating periods of loss.

Individuals and couples who come to me are usually feeling frustrated and stuck in a variety of ways, and are unable to see how to move ahead. We begin by working together to find a shared understanding of their difficulties from which we chart a path toward constructive change. My listening with respect and understanding can be helpful in itself. The assistance of a trained eye can reveal patterns of behavior and emotional reactions which are self defeating for my clients. Constructive alternatives to these patterns can then be considered and practiced with my guidance.

I believe one of the most valuable experiences someone can have in their life is to be truly heard. You may find me well-suited to helping you as I'm calm, empathic and nonjudgmental -- people have told me. I treat clients who struggle with anxiety, depression and relationship problems among other difficulties. In the past few years, my skills and knowledge have been deepened in particular by discovering that our connection to others is a survival need--and a key source of difficulties. But connection can be an essential source of healing and growth.

However, I specialize in the treatment of addiction to drugs, alcohol, and sexually compulsive behaviors better known as “sex addiction.” The reason I don’t prefer that term is because it oversimplifies both the subjective experience and the symptoms. For example, overuse of pornography, or countless hours spent browsing single’s ads online doesn’t necessarily involve sex, but it can be compulsive.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Durham, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Durham are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Durham. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Durham

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Durham you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Durham and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Durham or family therapy in Durham.
