ABOUT US

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) was developed by Drs. Klerman and Weissman in the 1960's at Yale University.  IPT is a time limited (8-12 session) evidenced based treatment for adults, adolescents and geriatric patients/clients suffering from depression.  It has been recommended in American and Canadian Psychiatric and Psychological Treatment Guidelines as a first line gold standard treatment with equal efficacy to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). IPT can be provided individually, for couples, in groups and for families.

IPT has been adapted to treat dysthymia, postpartum depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD  and medical illnesses occurring with depression.

Dr. Ronald Frey and Cindy Goodman Stulberg are Psychologists and Directors of the Institute for Interpersonal Psychotherapy.  Combined they have almost fifty years of clinical experience working with patients who have depresssion and other mental health disorders.  For the past twenty years they have trained and supervised mental health clinicians including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists in Canada, the United States and Europe learning IPT.  

They both have been interviewed by media outlets and Dr. Frey has testified in the Canadian Senate on PTSD and the military. Their trainings receive rave reviews from participants.
