Individual Psychotherapy

Dr. Adler works with children, adolescents and adults in individual psychotherapy. When treating children and adolescents, she commonly meets regularly with their parents. Patients and their families also may learn to understand the connections between past and present experiences. When indicated, she uses relaxation and meditation techniques as adjuncts to psychotherapy.

“Psychoanalysis is based on the theory that the experiences of birth, early relationships with parents, sexuality, love, loss and death lay down patterns in the mind which provide unconscious templates, or models of relationships. Such unconscious versions of relationships are often at the root of the problems which lead people to seek help. Regular sessions with a psychoanalyst provide a setting within which these unconscious patterns can be brought into awareness and worked on with a view to change.”
