Transformation through brief dynamic therapy.
Follow My Blog  


Are you experiencing:


Relationship or Marriage Problems?
Affairs • Communication • Betrayal

If your relationship has lost its intimacy and fun, learn a way to communicate that fosters closeness and forgiveness, resolve old resentments through state-of-the-art methods which go beyond talk therapy, heal betrayals such as infidelity, deal with anxiety, depression, anger, put passion back into loving and sex.

People have been bringing me their most intimate concerns for more than three decades. In brief, dynamic therapy I can help.

Reactions to Trauma?
Anxiety • Anger • Shame

An experience which negatively alters one’s sense of self and the world, is a trauma. Memories are stored in the body and the unconscious, effecting the quality of life. Symptoms such as anxiety, rage, insecurity, low self-esteem, inability to form intimate relationships, are often a result of some form of abuse. Deep suffering from issues such as grief, loss and divorce, can be resolved.

Brief, dynamic therapy and state-of-the-art methods, go far beyond just talking about it, and can offer you a new lease on your life.

QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN COMPAIRING THERAPISTS.
Here’s how to find an effective therapist to help you make things right in your life.
If you call, ask him or her these questions and note the answers in the last column.

  QUESTIONS PAULA SUSAN OTHER THERAPIST
1.
Is the therapist specifically trained, certified, and experienced in working with the many-layered complexities of Relationships and effects of Trauma?
2.
Do you have the opportunity to make a connection with the therapist to discuss your needs, before you make your appointment? Does the therapist seem interested and concerned?
3.
If you want help with your relationship, will you have the opportunity to see the therapist alone as well as together?
4.
Will the therapist teach you a communication tool that will enable you and your partner to speak to each other in a respectful, productive way?
5.
Is the therapist certified and skilled in the use of EMDR* (see Trauma) to facilitate deep healing for both Trauma and Relationships, as opposed to talk therapy, which often becomes a long-term experience?
6.
Will the therapist teach you coping skills for immediate use, while the therapy work is being done in session?
7.
Will homework be used to keep you thinking and help reduce the number of office sessions?
8.
What is the therapist's style? Is it one of active involvement where you get feedback and guidance, rather than passive listening?
9.
If you decide to end a troubled relationship, will you be able to understand and break old patterns and leave without carrying damaging scars? Will you be guided to alternative ways to end it respectfully, maintaining the growth you made in the therapy?

Now you have a basis for comparison.
In selecting a therapist, remember you are making one of the most important investments in your life.
