My approach to tackling life's difficult moments is via the interface of classical Judaeo-spiritual teachings and the psychological approach of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. (CBT). The cognitive behavioral approach to psychotherapy teaches that ideation determines the way one feels and acts. Changing the way one thinks triggers a change in the way one feels. I also use "a strengths perspective" focusing on the client's stengths which serve to compensate for one's weaknesses. The interface of these three approaches is transformative, and life changing serving to help a client return to his or her innate and authentic self.

My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space that is supportive and non judgmental. I want you to feel heard and understood. I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation of therapy. As a therapist and dietitian, I believe the journey to mental health involves caring for ourselves in a holistic manner. How we think, what we eat, how we move impacts our mental well-being. Problems may arise when thoughts become distorted and negatively impact ones view of self and life. Therapy provides the opportunity to explore these challenges and create thought patterns that promotes self-growth and healing.

My goal as a Therapist is to assist you with identifying how your suffering manifests (whether it be due to depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, life change etc.) and the variety of ways in which you can cope with the distressing situations in your life.

I use modalities such as CBT, and DBT, through a trauma-informed and attachment theory lens.
Clients come to me when they have reached a crossroads in their life. Life may have suddenly become challenging because of conflicts in employment, family relationships, or dating/romantic relationships in a way that is overwhelming and difficult to understand. Sometimes we come to a place in our lives where we desire better for ourselves. However, we recognize the way we have been operating is no longer working. We need to process our past and present experiences to get to a place of personal freedom.

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.
