Karen G. Shore, PhD

My practice focuses on adults, individuals and couples. My training over the past 30+ years has been in psychodynamic/psychoanalytic work, attachment theory, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy. Emotion is at the core of human experience and informs how we feel, think, act, and how we interact with others. Our experiences from our earliest years through the present are crucial to who we are and who we are in relationship with others, in relationship to our work, and who we are in relationship to play and enjoyment. I enjoy working with people to help them access what is at the heart of who they are, how they feel, how they interact with others, and how they live in the world.
