Take Back Control
Schedule Your First Session
Are you losing your temper at home or at work?
Relationships suffer, the kids hide, the partner threatens to go, the colleagues are over it.
You can’t believe it happened again. You promised to do better, but you lost control. You said things you don’t mean, the kids are scared, your family is ready to pack it in. You wish you could take it all back and start the day over. You bounce between blaming yourself and blaming them and then the cycle starts again. Blaming yourself stokes shame. Blaming others cools the shame, but then anger builds again.
There’s another way. I know how to follow these feelings back to the root. I know how to find out how this fight got born, how it grew, who taught you how. And after you’ve done the work to learn everything about the history of your angry feelings, you won’t need to count to ten or absent yourself for yet another walk around the block. You’ll be on to yourself early, before it gets loud, and you’ll know how to take care of yourself.
Once you start to know yourself, you won’t be surprised by waves of feeling. They are old friends. They don’t keel you over, you ride them, or jump them, or dive under them. You know how to talk about your feelings because we’ve done the hard work of naming them in session. You start to feel like people know the real you. You can count on yourself. A bump in self-esteem is next. A little calm. Some trust. Ease.

Who I Am
I am a licensed psychoanalyst, in practice since 1997. I teach, present clinical work to groups, and serve as President of the Association side of the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis. When I started seeing patients I was immediately drawn to people who felt a lot, almost too much. Powerful feelings are old feelings. We end up back in your family of origin, in the place where you grew up. We explore your childmind. I am an expert at figuring out what you were trying to master, who you tried to protect, what you wanted the way kids want things–with their whole selves.
