WHAT IS DEPTH PSYCHOTHERAPY?

Depth psychology acknowledges the dynamics between our conscious and our unconscious mind. It seeks to find ways to understand and connect our varied behaviors, particular thought processes, and relationship patterns with unresolved or unprocessed emotional experiences in our lives.

 

Certain behaviors we call “symptoms” are often ways we try to keep a sense of self alive and whole, attempting to maintain a balance. Throughout the course of therapy, as clients explore their emotions, thoughts, patterns and behaviors, previously exiled feelings and parts of self can emerge to be acknowledged and explored with the therapist who acts as a safe and containing presence.

 

One of the primary goals in the course of psychotherapy is developing a more nuanced emotional life and understanding of the underlying dynamics that keep you stuck in destructive patterns and limit your choices of behaviors and expressions. As your awareness grows, you are freer to align with more authentic ways of being; you become more trusting, autonomous, and confident, with a greater capacity for intimacy and an increased ability to accept and adapt to change.

SERVICES AND APPOINTMENTS

Sessions are generally scheduled once a week for 50 minutes. Depending on your circumstances, you may benefit by coming to therapy more often than once a week.

 

If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please call me to arrange an initial phone consultation at no charge. We can talk about what’s bringing you to therapy to see if it feels like we are a good match to work together. If it feels like a fit, we will schedule in-person consultation appointments to gather a deeper understanding of your presenting concerns and goals for therapy. If we’re not a match, I have a list of quality referrals to other colleagues and organizations that may better fit you.

 

Please call for information regarding my current hourly rate. I do have a limited number of sliding scale openings in my practice for those facing financial hardship.
