Licensed Psychologist and Psychoanalyst in Montreal
I specialize in psychotherapy for Gifted adults and Highly Sensitive People (HSP, Aron, 1995).
Are you "Too Sensitive"?
Psychotherapy and consultation for Highly Sensitive People (HSP) and Gifted adults. High Sensitivity (HS) is a naturally occurring temperamental trait in 15-20% of the population. It is also a typical characteristic of gifted adults and children.
In conjunction with Introversion, intuition, creativity and giftedness, heightened sensitivity (physical and emotional), creates unique perceptions, life experiences and predictable stresses which are often unexamined factors in the psychological and interpersonal complaints that clients bring to therapy: Understanding, validating and managing sensitivity can reduce anxiety and depression, increase self-esteem, and moderate relationship difficulties, burnout and perfectionism.
Psychodynamic therapy is appropriate for clients wishing to look more deeply at the roots of problems ranging from stress, anxiety, depression, professional burnout or "imposter syndrome", to issues of loss, self-esteem, relationship, identity and problems of blocked creativity. Understanding and managing sensative, introverted and extroverted temperaments
Authenticity, integrity, personal authority and the special challenges of mid-life and aging may receive particular attention.
Freudian and Jungian depth psychology approaches may be utilized. Clients who wish to include a creative approach, may engage in dream interpretation or explore their personal artistic/creative expressions in their therapeutic process.
