Broadspectrum treatment perspectives, including either brief-focused, solution-oriented (cognitive/behavioral methodology) or deeper-searching, longer term psychodynamic psychotherapy, or -- where appropriate and when the patient desires -- a combination of the two, with the perspective that in order to effect lasting change, behavior and cognitive thinking alterations must be combined with curing childhood pains brought into present lives and relationships.
