Dr. Melinda Z. Aaskov received her Psy.D. in Psychoanalysis from Newport
Psychoanalytic Institute where she is currently a Training and Supervising
Analyst. In addition, Dr. Aaskov has been the Admissions Chair at
Newport Psychoanalytic Institute for the past 5 years. Dr. Aaskov's
main area of study at the Institute was dreams; how they create a
deeper understanding of the patient, how they can move the patient
along in treatment and how, at times, the 'dream' is the only way
in to the deeper parts of the patient. Dreams are the inroad to the
unconscious. The unconscious part of the mind is the guidepost to
perceptions, patterns of behavior and belief systems. Dr. Aaskov believes
dream life can play an important role in a patients treatment.
Dr Aaskov specializes in attachment and understands
how early relationships impact how we feel and think. Disruptions
in attachment create challenges in relationships, work, motivation
and drive among others. Understanding one´s story and giving
voice to that can lead to much needed grief work allowing for a
process that is uplifting and transformative in nature.
Dr. Aaskov has been in practice for over 20 years.
