"Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality."

- Erich Fromm, psychiatrist and psychologist

My Practice and Treatment Philosophy

Joanne Burgio Office Fountain

People are often shaped in ways they don't fully understand. There are feelings that, when left unattended, are beyond our awareness. These emotions influence our thinking and our behavior. They are unconscious feelings you and I will work to unravel and understand together.

Understanding these powerful unconscious feelings contributes to self-understanding and healing. The knowledge gained through this work helps you stop self-defeating patterns while repairing painful emotional experiences.

You can improve the way you relate; begin behaving with clarity and confidence; and find joy and peace in your life. The powerful work of understanding your emotional landscape prevents your past from interfering with your present and increases your self-awareness so you can experience greater joy and love in life.
