What makes life worth living?

This is a question that goes to the heart of our everyday experience. The ability to love, work, and play with joy, intensity, creativity, and freedom. These are signs of healthy, meaningful living. My psychotherapy and psychoanalysis practice is devoted to helping individuals and couples get as close as they can to these qualities and ways of living – with a deep respect for unconscious processes that can get in the way of these goals. Therapy conversations inevitably revolve around relationships (both past and present) that shape the way life is experienced. Many problems in living – anxieties, inhibitions, depressive feelings, compulsions, thwarted ambition, or fears of desire itself –  revolve around our loving and sexual natures. After all, loving and being loved is the essence of being human.
