Being able to feel and think in a free and full way often requires the participation of another person.  This dynamic may sound familiar, or it may sound quite strange.  Psychotherapy is a unique opportunity to create this essential form of collaboration that elaborates and enriches one's experience of oneself and other people, which tends to reduce the overwhelming frustration and isolation that generate hopelessness and dread.  In working together, my interest in what you tell me becomes the ground from which a fundamental and enlivening process can develop in the context of a professional relationship.
