Areas of Professional Interest
Corinne follows a model of psychotherapy that embraces both the psychoanalytic model as well as the psychodynamic model. From the psychoanalytic world comes a deep regard and awe for the human mind (Psalm 139), both the conscious mind as well as the unconscious mind. Corinne follows the teaching of this model in her belief that nothing one says or does is happenstance or coincidence, but rather there is great significance in all that one says and does. She believes a person’s physical movement and the words that person chooses to use speak boldly of the narrative of that person’s stories. From the psychodynamic world, Corinne holds great respect for the stories and experiences of her patients.
