 ISTDP

Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy is an evidence-based treatment approach that addresses a broad spectrum of psychological conditions by integrating elements of attachment theory, psychodynamic theory, somatic experiencing, mindfulness and experiential learning. ISTDP is a major focus of my work and requires three years of supervised training and practice.

While ISTDP is not appropriate for all individuals, many people have found that participating in ISTDP added emotional dimension to their lives that had previously been lacking. Here are some articles related to psychodynamic psychotherapy and ISTDP as one effective treatment.
