Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Existential Consulting
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is an engaged process through which people work on identifying and overcoming difficult relational dynamics. By discussing experiences and problems, psychoanalytic psychotherapy helps patients to live with greater freedom and agency.
Psychoanalysis typically involves multiple sessions per week and is designed to work deeply and comprehensively. This is accomplished through allowing for "free association," saying whatever comes to mind. Through this practice of free association, unconscious dynamics can be worked through, and conflicts can be identified and made more conscious, and thus more controllable.
The process is well-suited for people looking to delve into the roots of concerns and for those who seek long-term results.
Existential Consulting is a personal service designed to help you become more aware of what is meaningful to you, to enable you to proactively prioritize values, and to create adaptive strategies for overcoming hardships.
Existential Consulting uses techniques and insights found within a variety of philosophical and existentialist traditions and applies those philosophical perspectives to concrete situations and real life experiences.
Existential Consulting applies the wisdom of the ages to our everyday lives and helps us to appreciate what is most meaningful.
This modality is an excellent option for people looking to more deeply understand their own values and commitments.
