My method is interactive and interpersonal and is founded on establishing an emotional contact with the person that comes to me to help them understand their problems for counsel and guidance. I emphasize the importance of the emotional contact because in my experience life's conflicts and problems are intimately connected with feelings and emotions flowing from person to person. The most important feelings and emotions are those related to being able to love and be loved in return. Love writ large encompasses caring, friendship, an interest in the welfare of the other person. It also contains the varieties of sexual feelings and emotions. Everyone is engaged both in the (1) outward realm of actions upon things and (2) interpersonal actions, or interactions, among persons and communications of the inward realm of feelings, emotions, imaginings, memories, thoughts, and intentions. The inward states either persist as an impressions, conscious or unconscious, or, they become motives of an expression, the passage from a potentiality to the actuality of action. Psychotherapy addresses both the inward and the outward realms in a person’s life. This is how psychotherapy works.

People seek therapy when they reach a crisis in a love relationship: with family, coworkers, employers and react with fear, pain, or panic when threatened loss of love and when love is lost - with depression and despair, anger, rage and revenge, and wish to die. Such feelings and emotions become real-life dramas. Free association in both patient and therapist is the technique for recovering forgotten dramas, or traumas, of the past to overcome them and build a better present and future. Truth and candor in both participants are the ethical principle complementing the technical as procedure.

In 2009 I introduced dramatology which means dialogues and interactions in life and with the therapist with feelings, emotions, gestures in the here-and-now, the focus of interpersonal drama therapy. Subsequently the present is linked to past dramatic situations. Stories, or narratology, are told afterwards to solicit understanding, sympathy or counsel.Dramas are scenes mutually experienced, enacted, and witnessed in the here-and-now. As historic facts, such scenes remain unchangeable. Recalled scenes of the there-and-then become narratives, and these are infinitely changeable with each person
