Who Can Benefit?

Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy is for adults, adolescents, and children. People are suitable for analysis regardless of age, color, race, religion, sexual orientation or educational status. Some people seek analysis due to a sense of dissatisfaction or lack of fulfillment, wanting to explore meaning in their lives. Others come with anxiety, depression, suicidal feelings, social anxieties, or relationship difficulties.

Psychoanalysis can help adults as well as children and adolescents with traumatic life experiences and other difficulties such as behavior problems, disturbed relationships at home, work or school, and with eating or sleeping problems.  Psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy is sometimes requested by people whose professional work would benefit from increased self-understanding, such as those working in health care, social work, or religious settings.
