Psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis share similar processes however, psychoanalysis is undertaken multiple times per week. It offers an intensive examination and reparation of core wounds, personality problems, identity issues, overwhelming thoughts and feelings and relational difficulties; all of which can undermine one's ability to create a fruitful life.
The course of psychoanalysis varies for each patient. Most individuals commit a minimum of two years to the process, but some psychoanalyses can extend beyond that time frame, particularly if one hopes to access the deepest, foundational aspects of one's personality.
If you would like to pursue psychoanalytic work, we will engage in a thoughtful evaluative process to determine if a psychoanalysis would be a suitable form of treatment for your therapeutic goals. Please contact me for more information.
