Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

There are multiple ways in which I work with adults to create insight, change and movement toward more freedom in their life. These can look (and feel) differently, but I’m a big believer that they are all of value. From psychoanalysis to group psychotherapy, there are a lot of options. Let me introduce you to them here.



If you’re someone who is interested in digging deep, if you are someone who is surprised by the things you do and you want to understand why, if you’re someone who wants treatment at a different rhythm than you’ve had before, psychoanalysis is likely a treatment for you to consider. A fantastic psychologist once used this analogy with me: Psychoanalysis like going to the gym. You could do the work once a week, but going more than once a week creates a different experience, different pace, different results and a different relationship with the psychotherapist. Psychoanalysis is at a higher frequency, meeting multiple times per week. How many? That’s up to you and your analyst to figure out what makes sense. In contrast, psychotherapy often only meets once a week.

The higher frequency supports our joint efforts to understand your desires, your pulls for freedom, the ways you may keep yourself small. Together we get curious about your unconscious world, underlying patterns and your relationships. This is not simple stuff to decipher. I listen with intention to your stories, your fantasies and your dreams. Psychoanalytic treatment doesn’t just target a symptom or two, but works with the whole person for lifelong change. You have been impacted by your life in more ways than are obvious. We look at this together under a microscope with the idea of understanding your development, your adaptations, your survival . . . so that you can meet your life with more freedom and ease.
