The ICC provides adults with individual and couples therapy to address a wide range of life problems. In addition we offer treatment to children and adolescents. Psychological testing and psychiatric consultation are available as well.
How Do We Work?
In psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, patients work toward resolving their struggles and improving their relationships and work lives. By exploring underlying conflicts and ways of relating that are at the root of their problems, patients gain insight and change becomes possible.
The therapist is an involved partner, helping to foster a safe, supportive environment and enabling authentic, open self-exploration. The relationship that forms between them is used as a means of understanding habitual ways of behaving and relating. Over time, patients learn to cope with difficult feelings and develop new ways of thinking.
The frequency of sessions is decided upon jointly by patient and therapist. Some patients begin treatment at once or twice a week (psychotherapy), and others choose to work more intensively at three or four times a week (psychoanalysis). Once treatment is started, patients can discuss their needs and circumstances with their therapist and determine what frequency works best.
Who are Our Therapists?
ICC therapists are a diverse and highly skilled group with varied experience and areas of expertise. Many hold supervisory or teaching positions at local agencies, universities, and hospitals. In addition to graduate level training, all therapists have completed or are completing post-graduate training at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR). Treatment is available in many languages.
Our therapists are committed to continuity of care and work with patients for as long and as often as is clinically appropriate.
