Graduate Psychoanalysts are licensed mental health professionals who have completed four to five years of additional post-graduate course-work, obtained clinical supervision from qualified psychoanalysts on multiple training cases while undergoing his or her own personal analysis and completed a certification or Psy.D. paper, or a Ph.D. dissertation. Immersion in such a program deepens one’s awareness and respect for the human psyche, and enriches one’s understanding of the influence of both the conscious as well as unconscious mind.

Psychoanalysis fosters deep appreciation for the power of the internal world as a resource for change and healing, the outcome of which is often a deep sense of connection with humanity and a greater understanding of the human condition. Most analysts are committed to their own personal and professional growth and recognize the complexity and uniqueness of each individual with whom they work. Psychoanalytic Institutes offer some of the most rigorous, intensive and profound training programs available to mental health clinicians. Whether you choose to come for psychotherapy, couples’ counseling, or psychoanalysis, you get the advantage of my training.
