It's time to learn how to become attracted to what's healthier. 

Where it's all about You, Your Self & Why.

From your point of you. One Session at a time.

The Self: 

An Independent Center of Initiative  & Perception.

YOU. FROM YOUR POINT YOU. 

A more accurate view

Psychotherapy is a leap of faith. Not away from anyone or anything as much as a huge driving force (motivation) toward your Real Self. 

...

By looking at your Self in a way that is above all, empathic, honest, and consistent, you will be allowing me to provide interpretations or feedback in reflection back to you what my experience of you in a healthier more satisfying relationship. 

...

And yes, while our particular relationship will be unique to the ones you have and are attempting to have outside of our work together, consider that you will be paying me for my time and NOT my feelings.  

The privilege of working with those with whom we have each agreed is a "good fit," which means you bringing the best version of you into our sessions.  

...

Each time we meet, you will be allowing me to guide you as you leave the comfortable but unhealthy "Garden of Ignorance," and more consciously and therefore more informed understanding of yourself. 

---

By experiencing a relationship with an authentic, emotionally manageable, and consistently accurate perspective of you. You, from Your point of You.

I have a deep interest in the successful treatment of symptoms of trauma such as Infidelity, substance abuse, and other ways in which we cope with life stressors or feelings of inadequacy which as a Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic Psychotherapist I see as coming from our childhood selves.

. . .

Lies we tell ourSelves like accepting a false Self-narrative or a clinical diagnosis as an identity perpetuates a Self- loathing narrative in need of uprooting!

GROUP WORK

Psychotherapy is for people who want to improve their lives. While individual therapy involves one person meeting with a therapist, group therapy involves a small group of unrelated people meeting together with a professionally trained facilitator who leads, or facilitates, a therapeutic meeting.

. . . 

We learn from other people all the time. While the initial anxiety people feel about joining a group is universal, many soon find it easier to express their feelings in a supportive group of peers once they have begun. Group participants develop trusting working relationships with each other over time.

. . . 

Usually in a support group, the focus is a one particular topic or problem that all the members share. Participants share their honest feelings and thoughts about events occurring in their lives outside the group. 

. . . 

Participants respond to each other with direct, honest, and respectful information, suggestions, encouragement, and feedback.

The Groups I facilitate

COLLEAGUE CONSULTING

Personal connection is crucial to our work as therapists. We know how important empathic relationships are to mental and physical health. Being fully present during our client’s healing journey is the essence of our work.

. . .

But our life relationships are much more than a means of working with clients. We need rich connections in our personal lives and with our colleagues to be good therapists. Our professional interactions help us keep well informed, well supported and well educated to do this challenging work.

. . .

Doing our best work means recognizing our own needs for support across the whole gamut of challenges in working with clients. If we have a high standard of care, we need to work through what is happening with a client — or within us – all the time. 

. . . 

Clinical consultation – meeting or talking with a colleague or a group about your work – can only enhance your practice as a therapist.

PSYCHOANALYTICAL CLINICAL ASSESSMENT

Written Clinical Assessment

Should you both decide to come in and meet in person, at no charge, I can offer you (at your request) a written clinical assessment within 24 hours of us meeting. 

. . .

This written clinical assessment is an overview from my point of view as to the presenting problem you each talk about, my interpretations of what I believe may be or may not be happening within your relationship which would warrant behaviors of which YOU are not okay.  


 . . . 

This written assessment would be provided to each of you (again, only at your request) whether you decide to continue to work with me or not. I do charge a flat fee of $200 for the time it takes to create these assessments, and it can be utilized as a potential guide for yourself and/or the therapist you do decide to go with, or we can use it as part of the treatment plan implemented in our work together should we decide to do so.
