I teach a weekly course on psychotherapy for anxiety to psychiatrists-in-training at Harvard Medical School, and use techniques from CBT , Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, mindfulness and hypnosis.
My approach focuses on helping my patients to thrive on challenge. When we view challenges as opportunities, we experience adrenaline as excitement, and we grow; when we view challenges as threats, we experience adrenaline as anxiety. This means that anxiety is simply growth waiting to happen. I show my patients how to overcome worry and distractions by welcoming adrenaline and using it to work at their best. You can learn more about my approach at www.optimalwork.com.

Ideally my patient is as invested in their care as I am. They could have a variety of diagnoses but the thing they have in common is they are willing to give the process time, are open to new ideas, and know there is no magic pill to fix all their problems. My patients want to get to the best version of themselves and are willing to try therapy as well as medications to help them reach that goal. My patient wants an empathetic, listening provider who can guide their care based on the evidence, but tailored to their individual needs.

Let’s face it – life is a struggle. Managing the demands of work, our children, our parents, our relationships, all in an imperfect society can exact a heavy emotional toll, which in today’s day and age, we seldom have time to process. As a psychotherapist, I believe that processing emotions can unlock new ways of coping with the stresses of life. To be sure, this process can be hard work, but in my experience, it can be rewarding.

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.
