Couple Smiling at Each Other


Read about how my ISTDP therapy has improved the lives of my clients:

"I've seen a handful of therapists over the last two decades. They all had wonderful insights, but I felt like I was talking in circles. During a period of intense anxiety, a friend recommended that I see Margo.  The process she uses is the most efficient and effective therapy I have encountered. I think of her as a midwife for reality. She can help you face anything, and you will learn how to support yourself for the long haul."

“Your gentle guidance and support has helped me overcome some of the most difficult challenges of my life. Thanks to you. I am learning to be on my own side—and I intend to stay there! I know I wouldn’t be in such a great place today if it weren’t for you.”


 "Amazing, intense therapy. One of the best  approaches to therapy I've ever experienced- come prepared to get results. Margo Silberstein cut through years of baggage in an incredibly short amount of time.I can't recommend her highly enough!"


“Once again, thanks for everything you helped me to accomplish. Better say, thank you for the self-awareness journey that you helped me to start. I look back and realize the person I was and the person I am now.”


“Thank you for all you have done to help me face some important truths about how I internalize and avoid my feelings. You have helped me to feel fear, sadness, anger and abandonment and to not let anxiety stop me from embracing these feelings and to go through them. These feelings are not to be afraid of. I can survive these feelings and I no longer have the same uncomfortability I had when we began meeting.”


“I have learned a lot from you. I feel so much closer to other people now. I want to be in their company and enjoy things with them. In the past, I felt like it’s me against the world. Now I constantly listen to music. Before I came here I had stopped. I feel more alive. It was part of the closing down process. I didn’t want to feel anything. Now I am listening and feeling. It’s good to have hope and know that there are possibilities out there.”
