Training, Methodology and Experience


The therapist's training, method of psychotherapy and areas of specialization are important factors in terms of providing treatment. In general terms, the two most common approaches are Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic.

 Cognitive Behavior therapy is brief, time-limited, highly structured and directed, with instructional elements and homework as key elements.

 A Psychodynamic therapy is open-ended, less structured and is more interactive and collaborative in nature. The relationship between the therapist and patient are important means for discovering how an individual relates to others in their life.

 I use a psychodynamic approach. While not suited for everyone, I believe that this approach offers the deepest and most long-lasting understanding and change.
