Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that provides concrete skills and strategies to reduce distress.  It is an evidence-based treatment, meaning that scientific studies - in fact, hundreds of studies - have found it to be effective for many disorders.  It is a collaborative, goal-oriented, short-term treatment that focuses on present-day problems.  CBT is particularly helpful for individuals struggling with mood and anxiety disorders.  

With CBT, I help individuals overcome problems by:

  • identifying patterns in thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs that are influencing current distress
  • understanding the way that life experiences shape how we think, feel, and act
  • learning new approaches to deal with unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving
  • developing effective strategies to cope with and reduce anxiety and distress, and
  • creating a plan of action to prevent future problems
