"Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'erfraught heart and bids it break."
Macbeth, IV, iii, 209
Feelings of depression and anxiety, or family and work conflicts can become overwhelming. Talking about your thoughts, feelings, dreams and experiences during the therapy hour helps relieve emotional suffering, and increases your capacity to tolerate and manage difficult feelings such as anger, panic, grief and a sense of isolation.
I am a graduate psychoanalyst of the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis - an intensive form of psychotherapy - is designed to get at the roots of the problems one is having in living a fulfilling life. Growth of the personality, rather than just symptom relief, is the aim of this treatment. Depending upon the initial problems, these changes could include a lessening of self-defeating behaviors, such as procrastination with assignments or with work; fewer inhibitions, which allows greater access to internal sources of creativity: and a better understanding of how one relates to others, which may lead to an increased capacity to develop meaningful relationships.
