What is Contemporary Psychoanalysis?

 This isn't your grandfather's psychoanalysis!

This isn't your grandfather's psychoanalysis!

Many may consider psychoanalysis to be outdated and unhelpful in treating most all kinds of suffering. However, this classical model has grown and evolved over the last century.  

What we now call Contemporary Psychoanalysis values the unique subjectivity of both the patient and the therapist and how they mutually influence each other.  

The relational experience in Contemporary Psychoanalytic treatment is both informative AND transformative. 

This approach can help one find themselves beyond their symptoms and issues and live their most authentic life.

Psychoanalysis can help you move into a deeper knowing of your inner and outer world. In a collaborative process with the psychoanalyst, one can become more reflective about themselves and more authentic in their relationships. Knowing yourself well is the key to living most authentically.
