"Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is an approach to therapy that demands full and active collaboration between the patient and therapist. The patient is expected to bring a will to live as fulfilled and happy a life as possible. In using ISTDP I approach the patient's time as invaluable, and believe the wisest approach is to be up front with the patient immediately and continuously, to bring relief from suffering in the fastest and safest way possible. Therapy is typically conducted on a weekly basis following the initial evaluation until goals are achieved."

"People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives."

"During initial sessions I gather information as to the nature of the problem and the outcome desired. Together we assess strengths, and then obstacles to be overcome, whether environmental, relational, emotional or physical. It can take a single session or a number of sessions. At this point I recommend specific therapeutic modalities to be used to support client(s) to attain their goals. For some, the process is slow and delicate, for others vigorous and brief, a place to come back to when life's crises inevitably occur. For all - an experience in discovering a larger life of Resilience and Reconnection."
