I offer Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for patients who have a wide range of clinical challenges. In my experience, patients generally feel a significant relief of symptoms anywhere from 10-20 weeks. CBT contains aspects of both behavioral and cognitive treatments and focuses on helping people modify their thoughts and behaviors to bring about meaningful change. This is a structured and directive approach to psychotherapy, where treatment plans are developed and sessions have agendas to organize the discussion of specific concerns. CBT is a problem-oriented approach to treatment, which means the focus is on solving present-day issues. There is a great deal of research literature on the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral interventions for various types of disorders and as a stand-alone, CBT is 50-75% effective for overcoming depression and anxiety problems. Services are available in person or via Zoom.
I offer Cognitive-Behavioral Group Therapy (CBGT) in combination with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for teen and adult patients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Depression and Generalized Anxiety. CBGT is a group approach that makes use of behavioral, cognitive, relational and group procedures to enhance coping skills of the participants, help learn strategies to reduce symptoms and ameliorate relational and intrapersonal problems that patients may be experiencing. Groups are open-ended allowing for individuals to be added over time. Services are available via Zoom. Serving across California, the secure, virtual environment ensures privacy and allows delivery of evidence-based treatment.
