What To Expect When Working with an Analyst

Psychoanalysis is the original form of talk therapy. As a mode of therapy, it focuses on understanding personalities, symptoms, suffering, failure to thrive, and other human experiences through a conversation that unfolds in the context of a therapeutic relationship.  In our work together, you can understand the conflicts, patterns, and impulses which undermine your capacity for satisfaction and peace in your daily life. This experience opens your capacity to imagine and embrace new desires and experiences. While there are many forms of therapy that have emerged since Freud's time,  Psychoanalysis has continued to evolve; it retains its emphasis on a depth model which is necessary to facilitate lasting transformations and the emergence of an authentic self.
