Q. What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?
A. Have you ever wanted to make a change and found yourself unable to do so? There’s always a part of us that’s afraid to change. Psychodynamic therapists are trained to help us identify and resolve unconscious conflict. For this reason, it goes deeper than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); many of my clients are people who turn to me when they find that CBT can only take them so far.
Q. What is Relational Psychotherapy?
A. Relational psychotherapy is a type of psychodynamic therapy that focuses on the healing power of the relationship between client and therapist. As a relational therapist, I am trained to use various techniques to help clients who have experienced emotional deprivation and conflict find healing and growth in the context of a caring relationship with me.
Q. What is Relational Psychoanalysis?
Psychoanalysis has come a long way from Freud! Classical psychoanalysis focuses on insight to bring about change, but relational psychoanalysts use the relationship with clients to promote healing and growth. Relational psychotherapy normally takes place weekly, whereas relational psychoanalysis may be more intensive and useful for deeply entrenched problems. As a relational analyst, I have over four years of full-time, post-graduate psychoanalytic training plus many years of continuing education.
