Dr. Gillick is a Colorado licensed psychologist and a trained psychoanalyst. She is a fellow of the American Board of Psychoanalysis (FABP).
Her treatment model is psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy which focuses on the emotional/intellectual understanding of unconscious processes for the ways individuals think, feel, and behave. Each client has a unique relational style that will emerge in the context of the treatment relationship. Dr. Gillick will work with you to understand the multiple meanings of unconscious processes that are impacting your relationships.
Relational styles often have a variety of useful, constructive, and positive contributions in relationships, but also have conflicted aspects that can greatly limit the quality of one's interactions with others. These conflicted aspects can lead to distortions that might be displayed with low motivation, procrastination, disrupted eating, and many more unpleasant behaviors that affect one's productivity and sense of well-being. As well, this can be highly limiting in relationships and can result in loneliness, social isolation, social awkwardness, frustration, anger, sadness, anxiety, and overall dissatisfaction with one's lifestyle, self-esteem, and self-image.
The treatment process is both intellectual and emotional, and requires a capacity to tolerate ambiguity, develop insight, and maintain curiosity about a spectrum of pleasant to unpleasant feelings as they naturally arise during one's experience. People are often capable of productive, admirable, and creative expression that is blocked by unconscious conflicts, usually noticed as undesirable symptoms. Even though these symptoms are unpleasant, they are very important clues to better understand what is happening in your mind.
