Do you know what you need to do, but still can't do it? Do you understand how to move forward but find yourself stuck nonetheless? Maybe you know a healthier way to think, but still think the same old way even so? These are some of the reasons people seek psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 15 years in settings ranging from student counseling center to public mental health clinics for the seriously mentally ill and have effectively worked with clients struggling with conditions ranging from adjustment disorders (reactions to stress) to schizophrenia.
In addition to seeing a wide range of clients, I have two areas of specialization: 1) Intensive psychotherapy of 'severe mental illness' and personality disorders (with or without medications) including schizophrenia, bi-polar, or borderline personality disorder. 2) The psychology of financial investing and trading and analysis/treatment of related issues and stresses.
In case you are familiar with theory, I am particularly influenced by Freudian, Lacanian and Interpersonal psychoanalysis. In practice, this means I think there is a powerful connection between mind and body; believe relationships, including with the therapist; the unconscious, and life experiences are key. ***Note: lower cost therapy is available from a skilled, pre-licensed therapist
