Why Consider Psychoanalysis?

Psychoanalytic theories work to explain people’s deepest experiences. They facilitate profound change. The focus is upon your whole person, not just one aspect of you. 

If your concerns are longstanding or affect many parts of your life, then psychoanalysis can be especially appropriate. People who thrive on understanding themselves and others are also great candidates for psychoanalytic work. Here are some situations that are well-suited for psychoanalysis:

  • Substantial history of depression or anxiety
  • Deeply ingrained patterns that keep you stuck
  • Frequent difficulties with relationships
  • Experiences that are hard to verbalize
  • Emotions that don’t make sense
  • Attachment issues
  • Early trauma
