Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis Philosophy
As a psychoanalyst, I engage with you in a relationship that builds on deep rapport, thoughtfulness, and long term work. It will take some time to build a relationship that will serve you as a frame to use your own smarts, creativity, and humor to work on your goals.
Throughout my clinical training, I have been involved in working with patients from very different cultural backgrounds. Attending closely to where a patient comes from has been perceived as helpful in facilitating connections between present and past and the feeling of being understood.
