Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Those who ignore the past are condemned to repeat it. –George Santayana

The therapeutic process generates awareness of powerful, unconscious forces by forging connections between past experiences and present struggles. As we deepen our awareness, we begin to take control of these forces rather than being controlled by them. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is simply a general term used to refer to this approach.

In psychodynamic therapy, we examine anxiety and defenses as they arise within the session in real time. We explore the past through the lens of the present moment. I am trained to identify signs of unconscious anxiety and to help you address and overcome internal conflicts that may be responsible for many of the problems in your life: from depression and anxiety to work and relationship problems.

Research-Proven Healing

The root word “psyche” means mind; psychodynamic literally means the “dynamics of the mind” and psychotherapy means the “healing of the mind.” For a thorough look at the main components of psychodynamic therapy and the evidence for its efficacy, please see the following article:
The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

I practice within the broad framework of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with a focus on
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), incorporating many other interventions as indicated based on the needs of each individual client, couple or family.
