I offer one-to-one psychoanalytic psychotherapy, from within a Lacanian orientation.
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy will not provide stock answers, or dictate solutions, to psychic suffering. It cannot, since it takes individuals on a case-by-case basis, where each person’s suffering is considered to be relevant to their own history in unique and meaningful ways.
Instead, I will invite you to talk, to relate to another person who will listen to you, carefully and without judgement. In this way, I seek to open up a space for you to listen to yourself, to hear yourself and what it is you desire or are troubled by from new and productive angles.
If you would like to meet and talk about the possibility of working together, you can email me to set up an initial consultation. This is a chance to talk a bit about your decision to seek psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and to discuss any questions you may have.
