Within us all there lies a drive to develop, move forward, and become whole. At times emotional conflicts and stresses interrupt that process. Whether these interruptions are leftover from early experiences, or responses to situational crises, psychotherapy can be a useful tool in addressing such blocks.

    ACT, Mindfulness, Process Oriented, Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, Self Psychology

    Elizabeth offers psychodynamic psychotherapy, and is particularly interested in Psychoanalytic Self Psychology.

    From this framework, therapist and patient work together over time towards a deep understanding of the patient's emotional life - this can lead to greater self-acceptance, a more cohesive 'sense of self,' as well as a reduction in symptoms.

    Mindfulness and ACT techniques also may be offered to encourage reflection and self-awareness, and a capacity to manage difficult emotions.
