Therapy with Andrew Negrey, MS, MFA
Now accepting new clients for both in-person and telehealth therapy. Located in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.
Welcome! I specialize in guiding people through life transitions, moments of serious reevaluation and readjustment. This may include recovering from trauma, addiction, grief, existential or spiritual crisis, or just the emotional turmoil and sense of upheaval that comes after unexpected events, or when moving between life’s stages. I also focus on relationships and attachment issues, navigating the complex entanglements of family, friendship, and romantic relationships, and on creating more safe, healthy, intimate, and loving relationships.
I believe that therapy should provide a secure and non-judgmental space in which you may begin to view with curiosity and process even the most frightening and toxic aspects of your past and inner world. We will examine the dynamic patterns and sequences from which your life is woven, and collaborate to clear the way for increased freedom and the growth of new possibilities in the present.
I also see therapy as an exciting venue for creative experimentation, and encourage the use of various verbal and nonverbal modes of expression in therapy, including role playing, art/imagery, writing/journaling, and working with dreams. Therapy helps us feel, think, dream, and communicate with renewed clarity and efficacy, to cope, to adapt creatively, to thrive. Reach out for a consultation, I look forward to speaking with you!
It is in playing and only in playing that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self.
