The year 2021 presented many challenges. It started with presenting us hope through a breakthrough in the COVID-19 vaccine. Life was less worrisome in the summer and fall but during this time we were challenged by re-entry anxiety. All in all the dominant emotion of 2021 became “Languishing.”
I am grateful to work as a psychoanalytic therapist more than ever during the past 20 months and for being in the position to provide support and hopefully help people grow and manage better. Freud’s thoughts below are most perhaps the most emblematic of what I feel is the essence of the work we do.
