We spend much of our lives trying to find, and keep, our balance and emotional wellbeing. But the strategies we’ve developed or learned for keeping that balance may not be sustainable. You might recognize some of these futilities – over exercising, over working, over spending, falling in and out of love. These failing strategies depend upon a critical omission: the condition of not knowing oneself and one’s unconscious mind. Failing to correct this omission can sometimes lead to deeper problems.
Even when there are no emergencies in your life, an inaccurate assessment of your self-knowledge will prevent you from recognizing the inner mischief that can rob you of your full potential. My psychoanalytic psychotherapy is open to adults of all ages. I offer individual face-to-face therapy as a safe way of becoming aware of hidden conflicts and self-defeating motives.
