Individuals & Couples

We often ignore our "inconvenient" feelings like anger, sadness and frustration, but those feelings act behind the scenes -- often compelling us to behave in ways that make our lives feel worse, not better.  It is easy to then feel stuck, hopeless, and confused. Those feelings, however uncomfortable they may be, signal it's time for us to pay attention to what is working, and what isn't.

 

Successful psychodynamic therapy for individuals and couples, first attends to the client's most critical concerns. Therapy then focuses on appreciating those behind-the-scenes thoughts and feelings which contribute to confusion, worry, hopelessness and troubling relational patterns. Treatment offers insight and new emotional experiences which often lead to acceptance, change, and the repairing of old wounds.

 

Psychodynamic treatment is useful for treating:

  • anxiety and depression

  • trauma, loss and infidelity

  • communication problems and conflicts

  • personality traits and patterns

  • intimacy problems 

  • sexuality and gender concerns

  • substance misuse and eating disorders

  • psychosomatic illness and body dysmorphia

  • creativity and productivity challenges

Psychodynamic treatment is usually undertaken 1-2 times per week depending on client need. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this option further.
