Research has shown that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) is the most validated form of therapy.
**Accepting New clients** I treat Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Low Self-Esteem, Trauma/PTSD, Anger, and Relationship issues. Trauma and other life events can lead to anxiety, depression, or anger and result in trouble with relationships. Despite outward success, you may still feel disappointed and unfulfilled in life. Regardless of their symptoms, I have helped many clients achieve peace, clarity of mind, more fulfilling relationships, and a sense of purpose.

My primary treatment method is cognitive behavioral therapy, with the use of other treatment methods to best service your need.
Are constant issues between you and your partner leading your relationship to a place of hopelessness? Are feelings of unhappiness causing you to lack motivation in doing the things you once enjoyed? Are unpleasant memories of a traumatic event creating nightmares or keeping you on edge? If this describes you, I believe I can help. Managing conflict in healthy ways helps restore hope in a relationship. Feeling good about yourself and the joys of life increase happiness and motivation to do what you desire. Learning to reduce stress levels in exposure to trauma helps you relax and focus on healing your mind, body, and spirit.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

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.
