Approach to Therapy

by Dr. Lynn Margolies


As a therapist, Dr. Margolies is skilled, conscientious, empathic, respectful, caring, strong, open-minded, knowledgeable, instructive, and supportive. Trained and experienced in a broad spectrum of psychological approaches, she is eclectic in how she does therapy. Dr. Margolies uses a range of psychodynamic, interpersonal and attachment based orientations – and integrates these with family systems, cognitive-behavioral therapy and her own style which is active, energetic, problem-solving, intuitive, and empowering, often with a sense of humor. (The different therapies offered by Dr. Margolies are described in the Therapy 101 - A Primer for Consumers article.)

Most patients and problems are best treated with a blend of approaches in order to provide the maximum benefits psychotherapy can offer, allowing for effective treatment of different aspects of a problem during all phases of the process. What works at one point in therapy may not be as helpful at another point, and some people and problems are more suited to one approach versus another. It is, therefore, important to be able to work flexibly. Because of her experience and openness to using different approaches, Dr. Margolies has the advantage of being able to tailor therapy to what is most helpful and best suited to each patient, rather than trying to mold the patient to fit in with a particular approach.
