I have found that the most efficient avenue to life progress can be the connection between the psychotherapist and the client. Such connection promotes an evolving internal connection with one's most true passions,and offers the company of another in facing fears. I would help you to deal with conflicts that block your motivation and passion and help you open to new ways of engaging with your inner resources, and with the significant people in your life. In order to this I address any blocks & resistances that interfere with deep and authentic feeling contact.
Once the avenues to deep feeling contact are open I am more receptive than active allowing you the experience of just being, with memory fantasy and thought emerging along with the feeling state of the moment.
I practice individual group and couples therapy. I work with trauma, anger, and fear. I am acutely sensitive to all ranges of feeling, and to the critical need for all those who have difficulty sustaining work and love to surrender to facing the pain of grief from past losses and disappointments.

Susan Kavaler-Adler's Groups

Monthly Therapy, Support and Mourning Group

The focus of this group is the 'letting go of the old and opening up to the new' so that group members can make progress in their lives while they find the meaning of repetitions in their lives that hold them up.
