I like schema therapy because it has a strong cognitive behavioral component, but uses experiential strategies as well.
I believe that everyone can benefit from counseling and therapy at some point in their lives simply because no one has had a perfect life and we all struggle sometimes. I applaud your courage in beginning the process of reaching out for support. I want to create a safe space in which you can share thoughts, feelings and behavior without judgment and where together we can explore them further and develop strategies to change those that are causing problems and strengthen those that are helpful and working well. I have experience working with addictions, trauma, dissociation, borderline personality disorder, and mood disorders.

At the same time, I realize that the maturation process is not always easy and both children and parents often need outside supports. Emphasizing a collaborative process with my clients and their relevant care providers, I value working together to establish goals, individualize treatment, and evaluate progress. My services include providing short and long-term therapy with children, adolescents, and young adults to treat problems involving anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relational/social concerns, ADHD, adjustment problems, and family issues.

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.
