About Dr. Tim Ives

Couples Counseling

Your primary relationship is essential to your emotional health and well being. The trouble is that there is not a person alive who has not experienced trouble in his or her primary relationship. It is inevitable. The good news is that the very problems that you are experiencing with your partner are clues to what will make you and your partner healthier and happier and will allow your love to grow.

That is, of course, if you take the time to look at the problems and challenges that are in your relationship. This can be very difficult for many couples because they feel that if they name or admit a problem they are not loving. This is simply false. Speaking honestly and openly, with a trained therapist and your significant other, about your needs and your wants in your relationship opens communication and a way to a more fulfilling relationship. There is no relationship that does not have some trouble but all that means is that every relationship can grow.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage…..Lao Tzu

Please take the time and the opportunity to grow your primary relationship. Your life can be made brand new.

My Goal as a Therapist

As a Licensed Psychoanalyst, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in the present.

By looking at conscious and unconscious childhood memories, associations and beliefs about yourself, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

By discussing night dreams and daydreams and even nightmares we will discover new ways to open up your best self.  Through simply talking and relating we will find how you can become the person you want to be.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom….. Anaïs Nin

I do not believe in therapy that labels you as sick and then tries to provide a cure.  Anything that you are experiencing can be helped and transformed in a therapeutic relationship.  There is no cure there is just growth.  For example if you are particularly depressed right now it does not mean you are sick and should take a pill for it.  Your depression, if understood, can be a stepping stone to a new sense of self and life.

If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, then give me a call today. I specialize in:

  • Parenting Support
  • Therapy for Depression & Anxiety
