As a therapist trained in the unconscious, I am often asked, “Do you do other forms of therapy other than psychoanalysis?” And the answer is “YES!” My approach to the problem – regardless of whether it is with an individual or a family – is holistic and explores the context of your life. Essentially this means that all your relationships are believed to be extremely significant to how your mental health is today.
Individual therapy focuses on the emotional experience of your life. We examine how relationships, all your relationships -to self, family, friends, culture, environment and how they have worked toward shaping who you are. By establishing an awareness of the context you live within, specifically the different systems you are a part of, a clearer perspective can be gained.
Once a clearer perspective is established, we collaboratively start creating healthier ways to relate to yourself individually, and as a result to others around you. The core to all the work is the way you first relate to yourself.
A Note on Virtual Therapy
I currently work exclusively as a virtual therapist. While working virtually was a pandemic necessity for many, virtual therapy offers a highly effective therapeutic experience that also works very well for the busy lives of the many professionals I see. I also offer Ecotherapy in person for clients looking to explore the benefits of therapeutic mindfulness in nature.
