Contemporary Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Sierra Madre


Jeremy Mast, MS, MDiv

Welcome! I’m Jeremy, and I’m glad we found each other. I know that when life is hard, seeking help is not always easy. That’s why I create an accepting, safe therapeutic environment in which you can be your fullest self, in all of your pain and beauty.
This kind of acceptance, empathy, or grace has the power to transform us. In its presence, we can feel safe enough to allow all of our deepest longings, feelings, and thoughts to be seen, and we can be surprised when grace still seeks to understand and connect with us. When that which has been hidden can come into the light, lasting change happens.
I believe that the power of empathic understanding is life-changing and can help you in your pain. I deeply hope that you experience a change, a shift within yourself simply by having an encounter with what you discover here. Please have a look around. If you have questions, feel free to contact me. Let’s talk. >


Why Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy?

When most people hear the word “psychoanalytic,” an image of a passive, aloof, stone-faced Freud, the father of psychotherapy, often comes to mind. While Freud’s contributions reverberate in psychoanalysis today in its acknowledgment of the influence of the unconscious mind, psychoanalytic psychotherapy has shifted to become more relational, dynamic, empathic, and contextual. Research shows that change in psychotherapy occurs as a result of the therapist-client relationship, which is why contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy works in this relationship to bring about lasting change. Learn more >
