I welcome anyone suffering from issues with depression, anxiety, relationships/intimacy, loss and grief, trauma, medically-undefined chronic pain, as well as a wide range of other difficulties. Each individual is unique in their history and current reactions to the struggles in their lives. Clients are looking to feel empowered with their authentic emotional selves, instead of debilitated secondary to their difficult feelings, anxieties and behaviors.
Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is a unique form of therapy for clients, often surprisingly different from other therapy models. This is more than the "talk" in talk therapy; we will identify the bodily reactions of anxiety and emotions, building a capacity for healing self-awareness. Dysfunctional patterns in session are a primary focus.
So often we can be stuck in painful patterns that cause suffering and distress, especially in relation to others. In the therapy room, a safe haven to experience the emotional-self builds confidence in your innate healthy capacities. This will lead to motivation and commitment to the healing process.
