While in psychotherapy treatment clients discover deeper, often unknown, inner states of loneliness, emptiness, emotional homelessness, or underlying feelings of resentment, anger, shame, guilt, and grief which tend to restrict in different ways their lives. The psychoanalytic approach has demonstrated that issues that we may experience in our current lives often have historical connection with our past experiences and may continue to affect our every day existence. Many people are frequently caught up in repetitive patterns that may hinder their work or love/personal relationships due to past traumas and disconnection from oneself that inhibit them from being able to live a more fulfilling life.

I believes that the most important relationship we develop is the relationship with our inner self. This process of getting in touch with often unknown aspects of oneself enables one to lead a fuller life. Lack of such a connection with our psychological center or emotional home, in varying degrees leads to psychological homelessness, emptiness in one’s work, personal relationships, and a feeling of meaninglessness of human existence.

My approach is highly personalized and individualized to my clients’ unique needs. I encourage them to say whatever comes to mind as I focus on their communication in an effort to understand the deeper underlying causes of their psychological problems. My concentration is on helping my clients through the self reflective process to experience symptom relief, acquire better self understanding, and experience changes in their lives so they can move forward in the ways that would give them greater satisfaction, creative fulfillment of their capacities, and the ability to advance in the world.
