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.
Deep and lasting change is possible in a reasonable, cost-effective time frame. Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISDTP), originally developed by Habib Davanloo, M.D., is a scientifically validated method of psychotherapy which dramatically accelerates the therapy, so that patients see measurable results immediately.
I have long sought a therapeutic approach that would help free patients from their emotional burdens, where even after a few sessions they're aware of a difference down to their emotional & physical core. I happily see this approach bring my patients enduring relief from symptoms and long-term fulfillment.
