In this conversation, I speak with Dhwani Shah, MD (he/him) who is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.
Some highlights of our conversation:
I really appreciated Dhwani's openness in sharing his thinking, his background, and how he became a psychoanalyst. I think he captured the beauty of the psychoanalytic encounter and its emancipatory potential.
Let me know what you think of our conversation.
