Our Philosophy

At Dynamic Psychotherapy, we believe that mental health is more than the absence of illness—it’s about achieving a state of overall well-being.

Our practice is grounded in the principles of Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a method that values the healthy experience and expression of emotions as core components of mental health. We are the largest ISTDP practice worldwide.

Dynamic Psychotherapy practitioners have experience in a range of approaches in addition to ISTDP, including CBT, DBT, EMDR, schema therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
