Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Painful relationships? Hoping to realize your potentials in work? Difficulty connecting with others? Can't seem to find your life's passion? Lets make a safe space for thinking about your emotions. Depression and anxiety may be in those emotions waiting to be untangled. Lets have a deep respect for your unique inner path and your creative potential. I use a psychoanalytic approach - listening for underlying patterns, connecting to your childhood, searching for meaning, increasing your capacity to feel and express emotions. Lets use dream work to help connect to your deeper self and start an inner dialog with whats underneath the surface. Lets create a safe haven for your marriage/relationship. Express vulnerabilities and sadness that are underneath the anger. Strengthen the bond between the two of you by learning to have a third place - from which to be more open to your partner. Discover more positive cycles by talking about vulnerability rather than conflict.
