Because I believe mental health isn't all meds or all therapy, Eastern or Western, or even physical or mental, my practice includes four integrated services: medication, psychotherapy (psychodynamic, CBT , DBT-skills), exercise training/planning, and meditation teaching.
I work with any person - child, adolescent, adult - who is seeking treatment. They may be suffering from depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder, among others. Or perhaps they have never been diagnosed with a clinical disorder, but are seeking help to reduce stress during a difficult time, such as a challenging life transition or the death of a loved one. Those seeking a highly individualized and comprehensive approach to mental health treatment might find my practice particularly attractive, given what it offers.

Navigating the ups and downs of life can sometimes feel challenging. The losses and setbacks we experience often make us question ourselves and undermine our confidence. The old ways of evaluating relationships and work expectations seem less relevant. One of my primary interests has been to understand the factors that promote resilience. I work with a diverse group of individuals to help strengthen their core cognitive and emotional skills. They become more self aware and learn to adapt more effectively to circumstances. They are also able to connect more effectively with people around them.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Psychiatrists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
