DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND SELF-EXPLORATION

Dr. Weingarden is trained in various approaches to talk therapy including but not limited to Interpersonal Dynamic therapy, Interpersonal Social Rhythm Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
Interpersonal or relational therapy is based on 2 assumptions:
Humans are fundamentally social beings. Emotional problems can be understood in an interpersonal context.
Therapy involves a "therapeutic relationship," which, while in some ways unique to social relationships, also provides opportunity to explore our ways of relating, beliefs about ourselves, others and how relationships work, and our patterns of engaging with others.
Consequently, therapy provides a unique opportunity to explore relationships and ultimately improve the quality of relationships and life.
