Insight-based Talk Therapy for Individuals

What’s holding you back from realizing your potential?

Psychoanalysis describes a unique way of listening, giving priority to the way you speak and the words you use to relate your lived experience.

What can talk therapy help you with?

Among other issues, psychoanalysis can be helpful in addressing:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Difficulty in relationships, family or romantic, social or professional

  • Symptoms that have been unresolved by medical intervention

  • Distressing patterns of behavior

  • Questions about what you want from life

  • Feelings of being stuck or confused about your career, relationships, or identity

What happens in a session?

You will be encouraged to free associate - to speak freely with as little censorship as possible while paying attention to and speaking about your symptoms, memories, fantasies, dreams, and whatever else comes to mind. By having the freedom and safety to speak in front of a nonjudgmental listener, you may find yourself able to make new connections between your past and present, notice and change troubling patterns that were previously hidden to you, and untangle and discover your desire. ​

My practice is psychoanalytic in approach, informed by the theories of Freud and Lacan. This means that my focus is on helping you work through the underlying causes of whatever distress has brought you to treatment in order to improve your situation, whether you are looking for a safe space to help resolve a short-term issue or you are looking to transform your life completely.

Why work with me?

People come to talk therapy for a variety or reasons and presenting problems. Maybe other therapies like CBT or mindfulness have helped you in the past, and you’re looking for a deeper exploration of your symptoms. Maybe psychoanalysis has been of interest since you learned about Sigmund Freud or Jacques Lacan and you feel you could benefit from an analysis. Or maybe you are struggling with specific thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that you wish to understand better, and want the assurance that a clinician will not respond with judgment to what you bring to your sessions.
