I use Cognitive Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused techniques that I adapt to fit your unique circumstances and therapy needs.
As of 12/5/22 my practice is currently CLOSED for new clients. Sometimes life throws us unexpected curve balls that are difficult to manage. Other times, we may find ourselves struggling to manage day to day life even without any major life changes. Therapy can be an important tool for helping us manage both unexpected events as well as the stresses of daily life.

My training and experience allow me to offer an integrated approach to treatment incorporating psychodynamic, cognitive -behavioral, mindfulness-based, attachment and systems theories in my psychotherapy work with adults, couples and groups.
As a clinical social worker and therapist, I strive to create an environment of emotional safety in which we can identify and explore the internal conflicts and patterns of maladaptive behavior that leave you feeling distressed or dissatisfied. Through confidential consultation, we will first ensure there is a good fit between your concerns and my expertise. Then we will begin an individualized treatment that optimizes the conditions needed to support your recovery and personal growth.

My approach targets the individual, couple or family system, as well as each individual's cognitive , emotional and behavioral aspects as it relates to bringing about change.
An important aspect of any therapeutic relationship is the rapport and ease you have in discussing your issues and concerns with your therapist. I believe the right fit between the client and therapist is in large part a function of the flexibility in approach and ways of intervening with you as an individual client. I see the therapeutic relationship as being a collaborative partnership that is outcome focused in addressing your issues and concerns. The emphasis is on doing what is most effective in moving you toward your desired outcomes in the least amount of time possible.

My strength is a flexible approach informed by psychodynamic, cognitive -behavioral and family systems work.
I designed my website, howarderman.com, for people considering psychotherapy and I think my mini-essay, Thoughts on How to Choose a Therapist, will help you even if you end up working with someone else. My own style is relaxed, engaged, sensitive and thoughtful as we explore current problems and underlying issues. I believe if our self-understanding is limited, we keep defeating ourselves in our actions, like being stuck in a hole and trying to dig our way out when that is the only action certain to get us in even deeper. With insight, support, and hard work, change begins.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a well respected method of helping individuals more effectively deal with the problems of daily living.
Being a human being can be quite challenging! There's a saying about the mind: 'the mind is a good servant, but a cruel taskmaster!' Many of us never learned how to calm our minds, limit our worrying, and self-soothe. Mindfulness training is one of the most researched methods for learning to do this. My work with individuals helps them to become skilled in this way, and to lessen the grip of attitudes and beliefs that limit us in significant ways. I work with individuals in this way, as well as with groups.

Psychotherapy, if done well, provides participants with the gift of self-understanding. That self understanding, I have found, comes from the experience of being listened to and understood by a sensitive and knowledgeable therapist. But in addition, psychotherapy needs to practically address problems. I have extensive training in contemporary psychoanalytic approaches, which allows me to help patients understand themselves more deeply; often this produces profound changes. But when problems require practical techniques, I integrate aspects of cognitive -behavioral, family systems, and humanistic approaches.

I have trained in many different methods and modalities, including psychodynamic approach, CBT , DBT, hypnosis , couple counseling, and sex therapy.
If you are reading my personal statement, you are probably in distress and at least considering looking for therapist. It takes lots of courage to start therapy and address issues that cause you pain in your life. You probably have already tried to cope on your own, and discovered that it did not work. As a therapist, I can help you by providing a different perspective, new insight, and teach you skills so you can learn to manage your present and future challenges on your own.

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" (Mary Oliver) -- This question lies at the heart of my work, with my goal being to help clients live more authentic and connected lives through self-awareness, resilience and positive change. My approach is flexible, interactive and solution-oriented. I bring a mindful perspective to psychotherapy and tend to see life transitions as opportunities for transformation and growth. My clients have said that my calm demeanor and my careful, empathic listening promote a safe and reflective environment, fostering self-compassion, self-awareness and change.

As we strive for greater insight into ourselves and our relationships, we often come face to face with our deepest doubts and fears. Finding the courage to achieve lasting personal growth requires a safe and structured space for telling our stories and unraveling the knots that cause us pain. As a therapist with eighteen years of experience, my approach to providing such a space is both integrative and collaborative. I draw on well-established practices of attachment-informed, mindfulness, CBT , and psychodynamic exploration to help clients grow and navigate the challenges in their lives.

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.
