Mary Margaret McClure, DMHMary Margaret McClure, DMHHow do we “show up” as we live through these on-going challenging times? When we feel enormous distress and when that distress is all around us, can psychoanalysis offer us a method and real world support for regaining a thoughtful state of mind, grounded in ourselves, connected to others and to the larger world? Under threat of catastrophic change we all may feel a kind of break down. We may be tempted to withdraw into isolation and despair or to strike out with anger and hatred finding someone or something to blame.  To stay engaged in a human way, as a citizen, as a loving, working person is something we all are facing.

Mary Margaret McClure, DMH is a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis where she has been recently teaching about culture, child development, maternal subjectivity. She is in private practice in Mill Valley, CA. She is involved in an ongoing consultation with the Canal Alliance, a non-profit in San Rafael, CA, that serves the Latino immigrant population.
