We can help with relationships and with problems of depression, stress, anxiety, addictive behaviors, and eating disorders.

Many of the individuals and couples we see in our practice are dealing with life problems that transcend medically-based diagnostic categories. These issues are not symptoms of larger problems like clinical depression, but the natural expression of our complicated human lives. Our Personal and Executive Coaching Program draws on our many years of experience as educators and psychologists, integrating the principles that we believe are central to positive change.

Dr. Connors´s new book describes our integrative style of psychotherapy. It was released by Analytic Press in April, 2006. Prominent therapists have commented on this interactive, flexible, and comprehensive approach to mental health problems:
"This is a book filled with uncommon clinical wisdom. The interventions suggested by Connors are consistently informed by deep understanding of their meanings for the patient, and her attention to character, transference, and countertransference are masterful. At the same time, she demonstrates clearly how the deeper aims of psychoanalytic work can be enhanced rather than compromised by thoughtful inclusion of methods whose origins lie outside the psychoanalytic tradition. Connors is theoretically sophisticated, but it is the patient and his or her suffering, rather than theoretical 'purity,' that is the central focus of her work."

"Connors' writing reflects both rigorous scholarship and great personal warmth. The comprehensiveness of her treatment of her material and the clarity of her prose will be appreciated by teacher, student, and clinician alike. It is also a particular gift of this volume that the working clinician is offered a pathway through which neither depth-psychological understanding not symptom-focused relief has to be sacrificed in providing sound clinical care."
