Dr. Darlene Fortune

Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy

Dr. Darlene Fortune is a classically trained psychoanalyst in private practice in Coral Gables, Fla. She has practiced at some of the most prestigious psychoanalytic facilities in the country, including Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, Mass., The Institute of Living in Hartford, Conn., and Yale Psychiatric Institute in New Haven, Conn.

Dr. Fortune received her graduate training in psychiatric mental health at Yale University and also graduated from the Florida Psychoanalytic Institute. She is a member of the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytic Association. She has practiced for more than 25 years in Coral Gables, where she offers face-to-face counseling and psychotherapy, as well as traditional psychoanalysis on the couch. Although Dr. Fortune prescribes medication if necessary, emphasis is on talk therapy, root causes of distress, self-awareness, and the life improvement that can be achieved from meaningful interpersonal psychotherapeutic dialogue.

Dr. Fortune’s patients tend to be people who feel they may not be achieving their full potential and aspire to live richer, fuller lives. Many are seeking improvements in family, personal, or romantic relationships, work relationships, work satisfaction, and school, college, or artistic endeavors.

Issues involving anxiety, depression, stress, obsessions, compulsions, low self-esteem, shyness, psychological trauma, panic attacks, lack of motivation, difficulty succeeding despite the ability to do so, and other personal issues are focal points of the dynamic therapy and analysis.

Dr. Fortune is also a specialist in Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). If you are currently suffering or have suffered from an intimate relationship with a parent, boss, spouse, friend, or other significant other with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Dr. Fortune can help you understand and heal the trauma bond with knowledge, insight, empathy, and compassion.

Therapy sessions are available in person, as well as by phone or video. If you prefer a phone or video session from the privacy of your own home or office, this is easily arranged. All sessions start and end punctually in an effort to respect your time commitments, as well as to make the most of each session.
