Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

OCD and anxiety are areas where we have a lot of experience. Brief Strategic Therapy is designed to understand the unique logic that underpins OCD and panic and to develop strategies to bring those symptoms to annulment, sing the same logic.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

To solve the problems that keep people stuck in their lives and to help them create a new equilibrium that is more functional and fulfilling.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

The ability to solve difficult problems that defy ordinary logic and that require a specialized way of thinking to devise appropriate stratagems of change.

My Role as a Therapist

To discover, together with the client, the specific way in which a problem maintains itself, and to help the client create specific interventions to eliminate the problems and create something better.

My Therapy Focus

Problem solving.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

We use a specific interviewing method, the strategic dialogue, to discover how the problem operates, what maintains it, what logic it follows, and to create the appropriate interventions to solve it. People with identical symptoms often require different interventions due to the unique way the problem operates for that person.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Einstein said that solutions cannot be discovered by using the same type of thinking that produced the problem in the first place.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Some approaches work better with specific problems. If the problematic situation remains blocked after 10 sessions, more sessions are not likely to produce better results. Change the approach. Good therapists will be able to change techniques if they are not working.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Results.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

The client sets the pace. It's like Napoleon said: "I'm in a hurry, so I have to go slow."

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

Mental disorders are the results of the same psychological processes as mental health. Good solutions, when repeated too often or in differing circumstances produce bad results. Once we find the right nail to hit, everything falls into place.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

In Brief Strategic Therapy, we give ourselves ten session to begin to produce concrete results. If we are unable to create some change in that time, then further sessions are not likely to benefit. But if we see some change in those sessions, but the problem requires more time, we will follow the client until the problem is fully resolved. We tend to meet every two weeks to give the interventions time to bear fruit and to evaluate their effectiveness.
