What I Do
As a Psychoanalysist, I review clients currents struggles and issues and take their past struggles and issues and try to make a connection between the two. Psychoanalysis is a system of psychological theory therapy that aims to treat mental disorders by investigating the interaction of conscious and unconscious elements in the mind and bringing repressed fears and conflicts into the conscious mind by techniques such as dream interpretation and free association.
Are You Wondering if Therapy is Right for You?
There are many reasons that people seek counseling. You may be feeling you need short-term help to get through a difficult or painful situation that is causing you stress, such as trauma or loss. Coaching you through the distressing situation may be all you need. Or you may be considering counseling for more deep-seated issues, such as addiction or abuse. Struggling alone in despair is not the answer.
Counseling can help you face the challenges that life throws your way. The support and guidance you need to overcome the big and seemingly small obstacles you face can make a tremendous difference in your well-being. Dr. Elizabeth MacGregor, a Psychoanalyst and Licensed Professional Counselor and Mr. George MacGregor, DCSW, MSW, LCSW, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, are Anger Management Specialists, each with over 40 years of experience as caring, professional therapists.
