"For psychoanalysis, the symptom is not a 'disorder', it is a silenced truth that needs to be heard." -Agnes Aflalo.  Therapy should help you make meaning of your life and provide insight, growth and self compassion.  Through the therapeutic process you can overcome major obstacles that get in the way of feeling genuine health, productivity, vitality and wellness.

My areas of specialty include female sexuality, reproductive health, pregnancy and postpartum, eating disorders, couple's therapy, trauma, loss, life transitions, depression and anxiety.  "There is no such thing as a baby, there is a baby and someone." - Winnecott.  Learn more about my clinical interests on Twitter. @MGallagher73.

Certification in the advanced clinical practice of psychodynamic psychotherapy and a candidate in psychoanalysis at the American Institute for Psychoanalysis.  Co-author of "A Piece of CAKE:  Recipes for Female Sexual Pleasure," a sexuality guide for women and couples.
