As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I’m interested in your own experience, which is both singular and interwoven with the world around you. I believe the ways that you suffer are also the ways you learned how to survive, and that it is through examining the nature of these automatic patterns that you can discover new possibilities.

My approach is to listen closely so I can come to learn your unique way of being. The more you understand yourself in the context of your history, the more range and agency you will have. There is freedom in discovering desire—which is why I orient myself not toward telling you what to do, but toward helping you discover what you truly want.

In the clinic, I listen for how suffering reaches across generations and pay attention to how gender, sexuality, racism, class, and other material conditions may be involved. I am interested in your whole self—my job is not to deliver a diagnosis or reduce you to a set of symptoms. When latent aspects of your history are discovered, you will have more freedom to choose how to live, and greater access to desire, vitality, and connection.

Can’t Decide Who is More Suitable?

Deciding on therapy is a difficult decision. But let us make it easy for you and take the survey to find you the perfect therapist

How long is a session? Are you conducting in person sessions?

The length of psychotherapy session is either 45 minutes or 50 minutes. Please discuss this with your therapist, but both arrangements are acceptable.

We offer both—in-person, and virtual treatment. Please discuss your preference with your therapist.

How often should I see my therapist?

The frequency of work is determined between you and your therapist. However, we do believe a higher frequency has an important effect on the outcome of the treatment. Most of our therapists work with their patients at more than once-a-week frequency in psychotherapy. However, if you are in psychoanalytic treatment, the frequency is at least 4 times (sometimes we offer 3 times) a week.

How long does the therapy last?

Believe it or not, this is by far the most common question we are asked. There is a famous quote from Freud, “Our answer is like the answer given by the Philosopher to the Wayfarer in Aesop's fable. When the Wayfarer asked how long a journey lay ahead, the Philosopher merely answered ‘Walk!’” The duration of treatment depends on the individual circumstances. Therefore, he says, “[T]he question as to the probable duration of a treatment is almost unanswerable.” At TheraBridge we hold true to Freud’s word, “Walk!” We help our patients walk the path and over the bridge towards a future where new memories and new experiences bring happiness and joy.

Is my information confidential?

Yes, your information is kept confidential. In case we need to coordinate care with other medical professionals including your psychiatrist, we will obtain your consent, though the exchange of patient information amongst medical providers is considered HIPAA compliant.

What kind of therapy do you provide?

At TheraBridge, all our clinicians are trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.
