When a painful experience or experiences have happened, people want to forget them. The suppression and distraction might work and actually be needed for some time after the trauma or loss, but in the end the unresolved feelings will manifest as depression, anxiety, panic or insomnia, and people will find themselves stuck in anguish and distress, repeating unhealthy and self-destructive behaviors, and engaging in relationships and social interactions that are not good for them.
I will use a psychodynamic approach to help you understand the origin of your emotional suffering. I will help you address past events and focus on how to cope with the feelings that arise in connection to your memories. Through exploration and analysis of earlier experiences we will understand how these repressed emotions have affected your current decision-making, behavior, and relationships, and we will work toward helping you learn to resolve your current difficulties.
