I integrate psychodynamic models of therapy with cognitive -behavioral for a comprehensive treatment package.
In my 35 years as a NY licensed psychologist, I have found that most people come to psychotherapy in some degree of pain, distress or anxiety. In my office patients find a climate of ease that encourages self-disclosure and a warm therapist-patient relationship. I strive to collaborate with my patients to help identify what is really troubling them so they can develop compassion for themselves while coming to terms with their circumstances.

I use Cognitive Behavioral techniques as well as Solution Focused techniques in my practice.
I enjoy working with young adults and people who are in transitional times in their lives. Going from supported environments like college or university into the working world is sometimes an overwhelming shift for young people. I think that moving to a new city or starting a new job can lead to feelings of loneliness, depression and anxiety. There are many life changes for people in their 20's and 30's. Maybe the career you thought you wanted is not fulfilling or the relationship you invested time and energy in is not going in the direction you hoped.

I combine process and insight oriented psychotherapy with problem- solving, practical, CBT interventions that are done between sessions to maximize treatment.
Hello! My name is Dallas Carey. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a focus on helping others design their own consciousness. I work holistically. This means when someone comes to me, I help them target important life domains (e.g., nutrition, sleep, relationships, stress, thinking style, & daily structure.) For example, I am interested in how you think and feel about yourself (and your future self) & others, as well as how daily lifestyle choices facilitate your well-being. You’ll often catch me saying “Let’s discover the thought between the thoughts" or "that situation didn't make you depressed; your perception did."

My therapeutic foundation is rooted in Beck’s cognitive theory and traditional behavioral interventions, where we look at the relationship between your thoughts, emotions, and how they are affecting you today.
I have been a therapist for 10+ years and I'm licensed in both FL and MA. I’m especially passionate about serving clients in the faith community although it is certainly not a requirement to treatment.

Psychotherapy is based on a diagnosis of a psychiatric condition and includes many types of therapies; cognitive behavioral, trauma-focused, mindfulness.
Are you feeling stressed and stuck? Sometimes a change in life circumstances can leave us feeling at a loss, striving to move forward. Times of transition provide an opportunity to reflect on new possibilities, examining what changes we may want to make to regain balance and move forward. Psychotherapy or life coaching can support you on your path. I provide a confidential and safe space for learning more about yourself, identifying obstacles, adopting new strategies, and exploring personal growth. Together we navigate the path towards clarity, hope, fulfillment, and greater meaning.

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.
