    I'm looking for an ISTDP therapist based out of Toronto and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations?

    I'm also open to online therapy, but am not sure how if it's as effective - anyone had any experiences?

    Thanks :)

    Hi tgreen,
    I think you'll find long-distance work effective. Two suggestions, based on my experience: Commit, in your mind at least to work long-term until symptoms subside. Bring up any conflicts or misunderstandings with your helper, so that you can, together use this to go deeper in the work.

    See this: https://iedta.net/edt/about-edt/whos-who/allen-kalpin/

    Dr. Allen Kalpin trained under the founder of ISTDP, Dr. Habib Davanloo. Generally ISTDP therapists (at least those trained by Davanloo or by someone who was trained by Davanloo) do not do online therapy because they want to see your whole body during therapy to enable them to gauge your anxiety level as manifested by your body.

    Update: I see on a page elsewhere on this tms wiki website that Catherine Lockwood in Los Angeles is available for therapy by video. She has training from therapists whom Davanloo trained.
