Psychotherapy is a process requiring deep and penetrating looks into who we are and how we became so. Once we understand ourselves and our partners at the deepest level we have built a foundation for lasting change. Cleaning up the past helps us clear up the future. My job, as I see it, is to help clients identify the subtle but powerful deeper causes, those patterns of coping and relating, that lie at the core of their difficulties, having accomplished that my job is to facilitate substantive conversation about the deeper issues. The deeper issues are revealed by looking at the attachment history of each partner and how those patterns bear on the current issues.
