Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can be a powerful experience. It places the utmost importance on the connection between patient and therapist as a means of healing and change. In psychoanalytic psychotherapy we explore the past to gain agency in the present; examine current relational patterns and symptoms and the ways they are both adaptive and maladaptive; gain a deeper understanding of emotions and underlying needs; explore the relationship to oneself; develop self-compassion and compassion for others; and find ways to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
I hold a certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from Wright Institute Los Angeles (WILA) where I completed a two year specialized postgraduate fellowship and received extensive supervision in providing psychoanalytic psychotherapy to patient’s struggling with a myriad of concerns. I also completed a 30 week course on the psychoanalytic treatment of eating disorders and substance abuse from LAISPS.
