Do you sometimes feel at a distance from your own life and relationships, a loss of initiative and aliveness to your experiences? Or become overly involved, quick to feel anxious and overwhelmed? In a supportive, engaged and interactive working relationship you and I can help to identify and build upon strengths, goals and values, lend force and action to your search for meaning and belonging, and resolve emotional struggles. You can learn new ways of coping and managing emotional pressures, change old patterns and develop new ones.
For example, you may want to target a specific issue that will involve learning new skills or adjusting thought patterns and behaviors. This will lead us to a form of life management counseling. Or you may choose to go more deeply into understanding your emotional life in order to resolve earlier trauma or to achieve a greater sense of meaning and satisfaction in life, love and work. Many of my patients feel this approach leads them to a more purposeful life where intention, choices and increased capacity for insight and conflict resolution align with each other. This model opens the door to a more cohesive, centered experience of themselves, loved ones and the world around them.
I work with people who are struggling with intimacy-the push/pull of relationships, couple's conflicts, trauma, depression, anxiety/stress management, life management concerns and gay & lesbian issues. I am a psychoanalyst and licensed social worker with over 25 years in the field. For those who have considered psychotherapy but are unsure, it can be helpful to sit down with someone to talk about it.
