Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy
Published on: 4/28/2019
Psychoanalysis and its derivative, psychoanalytically informed psychotherapy (sometimes referred to as psychodynamic psychotherapy), are psychotherapies designed to treat individuals with psychological problems involving emotional, behavioral, interpersonal, social, and/or vocational symptoms . They are humanisitic in nature--that is, the analyst is there to assist the individual, as a fellow human being, with his or her difficulties, in a mutual effort to overcome impediments to greater fullfilment and improved functioning.

What is Psychoanalysis?
Published on: 4/28/2019
"What is psychoanalysis?" This is a question I am asked frequently. I resist the temptation to answer a question with a question, and try to educate and demystify. However, I know that if I do a reasonable job of responding more questions will follow: Why does it take so long? Who can afford the time and money? Who still does that? Why do you have to be on a couch? What good does it do? Haven't medications made that obsolete? The list goes on, but curiosity is a good thing. Now let me try to share my response to the first question.

Psychoanalysing Ambivalence with Freud and Lacan: On and Off the Couch
Published on: 10/21/2019
Taking a deep dive into contemporary Western culture, this book suggests we are all fundamentally ambivalent beings. A great deal has been written about how to love - to be kinder, more empathic, a better person, and so on. But trying to love without dealing with our ambivalence, with our hatred, is often a recipe for failure. Any attempt, therefore, to love our neighbour as ourselves - or even, for that matter, to love ourselves - must recognise that we love where we hate and we hate where we love.
