Do you worry too much about the way you interact with the people in your life? Do you blame yourself for things that aren't really your fault or under your control? Are you afraid there is something fundamentally wrong with you? Self-attack is my primary practice interest and I have specific training and experience in working with this painful phenomenon.
Our brains are structured in relationship. From our first relationship with a primary caregiver to the people in our lives now, improving relational understanding and functioning improves our well-being. Our clinical relationship will support you to study and improve the relationships in your life.
Psychodynamic theory started the whole field of talk therapy with the idea that repressing our feelings leads to painful symptoms in our lives. The current boom in neuroscience is validating what psychodynamic clinicians have always known: our emotional struggles stem from our history and the early relationships that impact us. I can help you approach the past that is hurting you and help you make links to improving your life in the here and now.
Everyone starts from the same reality: we are impacted by our original family systems. These original relationships play out again and again in our current lives. If we don't like aspects of our original family system, we can study them and the patterns they have created. I will empower you to make changes in your relational and professional functioning that will improve your daily life.
The global pandemic has exacerbated many emotional concerns. A crisis like this gives us an opportunity to strengthen our commitment to health for ourselves and our families. I can help you continue to grow and develop while we experience adversity.
None of us comes to any relationship in our lives unencumbered by what has gone before. Relationships can be so tricky because the complex system of one person meets another complex system. Relationships offer our best hope of feeling seen and understood. I would like to support your goals for increased connection and the freedom to be yourself.
Many people have undergone trauma and don't realize its impact on their lives because they were taught to minimize its harm. PTSD symptoms can include fearfulness, worry, interpersonal conflict, self-loathing and shame. These overwhelming symptoms impact relationships and professional goals. Let me help you get to the bottom of what you have experienced so you can feel more free.
Life can be traumatic. Our brains are structured in relationship. My ongoing psychodynamic training in enables me to understand the way your brain is uniquely wired. I will empower you to tolerate and approach your anxiety so you can pursue the life you are dreaming of.
Almost 10% of adults in the United States experience symptoms of depression at some point in their lives. We make a false distinction in this country between mental and physical health. Our brains are major organs that are vulnerable to illness in same way as other systems in our bodies. I welcome the chance to help you figure out what is causing your brain to suffer so you can begin to recover.
Modern Groups provide progressive emotional connection and communication in a forum that cannot be matched. People report, “I am able to talk about what’s really going on with me in our group. I feel stronger and more open. After feeling stuck for a long time, I have made real changes in my life.”
3 month initial commitment to group.
