Modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness interventions, and emotionally focused couple therapy are a few examples of the treatments I use.
For more than a decade, I have successfully helped individuals, couples, and families find greater clarity about what they want their life to stand for and how to pursue that life. Within a supportive therapeutic relationship, I help my clients attain the vibrant and valued life they desire. My approach in therapy is active. I work based on the assumption that clients are able to achieve rapid and significant changes in their behaviors. The interventions used in this approach help clients access alternative ways of "problem solving" that utilize the resources beyond the "common-sense" mind. https://effective-therapy.com/

I also incorporate cognitive behavior theory using evidence based treatment protocols.
As a therapist, I aspire to create a safe and accepting therapeutic environment to facilitate your personal growth; relieve symptoms of depression or anxiety; and/or help you create stronger and more honest relationships. During your sessions we will work together to get a clearer understanding of the unhealthy patterns which may be standing in the way of your achieving fulfillment in your life. My goal is that my patients leave therapy feeling supported, understood and comfortably challenged. It is a guided mutual process in which you develop better coping skills with a deeper capacity to handle emotional difficulties.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Los Altos or for a Los Altos CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
