Therapeutic Orientation
I use psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories in my therapeutic work. This means that I lean into time: you and me in the “here and now”, and the time it takes to learn how to hear you, to come to experience what you mean by what you’re saying, and to see what might be revealed of your life and mind as time goes on. It also means that I trust your “symptoms”, “problems”, “issues” and the experiences we will have together. I think of our worst or most confusing habits, behaviors, beliefs, what have you, as clues, lights, important guides, and as mysteriously sensible and understandable at their core. It can comfort us to come to therapy with an idea of who we will be after we’ve worked on what we want to work on, or feel we should work on. And I have also found that therapy, much like our lives, defies plans, defies who we think we are, and reveals something deep, eventually unsettling and then deeply settling, humanizing, surprising, and fascinating. Much of therapy, over time, might come as an important surprise that neither you nor I can totally expect and is meant for further sentience and fuller access to your own mind and life itself. I practice from the perspective that the unconscious is leading us through our work together and that our work is to create the space it takes for you to feel free enough to come forth, to unfold; in front of me and in front of you. I think therapy is a space-making collaboration for the most inarticulate, mute, blurred out, blacked out, confused, unknown, deep-down experiences to feel free enough to speak their first words.
