My approach is to accept that all people will see the world through their own filter. Everyone's belief system makes sense from their perspective. Unhappiness is caused by the view people take of things so the internal dialogue is the key to understanding people. Focus of therapy is to help indiviudals find a better way of looking at their current situation through empathy and cognitive restructuring. The ultimate goal is finding some joy in the journey.

Mindfulness based cognitive therapy encourages people to become more aware of what really matters.
I am interested in patients who want to be joyful and content, to cherish their relationships and appreciate the present. Many of us feel pressured, juggling many obligations, believing we need more, more achievements, more things. This "unsatisfactoriness" leads to depression and anxiety. We will suffer less if we appreciate the present more, whether we are caring for children or an aging parent or facing aging ourselves. I am interested in helping people who want to become happier by living in the present and letting go of beliefs that create suffering.

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.
