Leeiner Munoz, Ph.D.
Couples Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis for Adults, Children & Couples
Hello and welcome to my website. I know that it can be difficult to start therapy. I would like to tell you a little about myself and my practice, and also to give you some information about the process of psychotherapy.
*Please note that sessions can also be offered remotely through secure video conferencing.
This work begins with your choice to seek change. Your willingness to be curious is the first step. Sharing this meaningful and important process with you is a privilege I take very seriously.
We focus on what you may be hiding from yourself and others, as well as what you are seeking. The creative, collaborative work of psychotherapy more clearly defines your unmet wishes and needs. We explore internalized patterns and stories from your past as they emerge in the present, but our central focus is the generative and rich possibilities of your future.
It is difficult to be human and relationships can be challenging. Our limitations can inhibit our becoming. I see much of our work as helping you understand the person you are, and how to become more like the person you most want to be. Building psychic and somatic strength in order to live a more joyful and fulfilling is a natural outgrowth of our work together.
Psychodynamic and somatic (body & mind) psychotherapy can be transformative and help us feel more free. Research shows that patients committed to the work continue to improve and grow even after treatment has ended. We address your whole emotional self, not just the symptom in the foreground.
I believe that we develop into much of who we are from life experiences with the people who loved us and who failed to love us in the way we needed.
My approach with children, teens, couples and families is to create an exploratory partnership, where together we work to understand underlying patterns that may be contributing to distress and suffering in the relationships with those you love most.
By discussing your life situation and your thoughts and feelings in depth, I can help you understand yourself and other people better and apply that understanding to your life to make lasting changes.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please feel free to reach me at the inforamtion below. Any inquiries will be responded to within 48 hours.
