I know there are many therapists who firmly believe that cbt is THE way to go!
I called Relief for a referral, I asked for an insight-oriented therapist and boy did I get a mouthful from the receptionist! She claims that cbt is the way to go, that it is short-term and it works! yeah, for sure...And that insight-oriented/psychoanalytic therapy is a waste of time and money, etc. oh yeah, right...
I'm really p-ssed off by such an attitude.

I've worked briefly (6 months) with a therapist using a psychodynamic/psychoanalytic model of treatment. I felt soooooo much better during those 6 months, digging up old repressed stuff and purging them...if you've heard of the word catharsis, the work we did was oh so cathartic....Then I moved (from Eretz Yisroel) so I was unable to continue to see her.
I moved to Brooklyn and saw posters here making reference to Relief. Well, I'm disheartened by their strong belief that cbt is the way to go....
In my opinion, cbt aids in furthering the repression that brings the client into therapy in the first place.
Anyone know of any GOOD psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapists in Brooklyn? Has anyone tried obtaining services at a training institute in Manhattan? I want someone very experienced, as I am middle-aged and don't want to see someone twenty years my junior...if you know what I mean...
Thank you.

I hear what you are saying. My humble opinion is that you need a little of everything. You need insight. You need to understand what you are telling yourself that makes you feel the way you do. You need to physically do something different and healthy in your life to make it stick. Having said that, I would also be quite ticked off to hear that attitude from Relief. The question is, are you looking for a male or female? I might have some ideas for you.
