I specialize in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). This model is targeted at helping people who have been resistant to many other forms of treatment. It is comprehensive and efficient, with permanent results often achieved much faster than traditional forms of therapy. Most clients will experience a reduction in symptoms and an increased ability to find and maintain healthy relationships.
ISTDP is effective where most therapies are not, especially in cases of:
Treatment resistant depression and/or anxiety
Frequent panic attacks
High levels of social anxiety
Emotional dysregulation and mood disorders
Physical symptoms which result in problems functioning (eg. pain, headaches, fatigue, digestion problems, etc).
Medically unexplained symptoms

What To Expect
In our initial meeting we often explore your experience, paying particular attention to aspects you find challenging. Based on this conversation, we will identify goals that we will use to focus our time together. By the end of this first meeting, you will have a good understanding of the therapeutic process and clarity on the goals you want to work towards.
Following sessions are usually once a week and target internal processes that act as a barrier to reaching your goal. You will come to know yourself deeply and understand why you think and feel the way you do. From here, change become an available option. To read more about what to expect, visit this post on my blog.
