Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy demonstrated, through countless research studies, to be effective in the treatment of a wide range of problems, including

  • depression  
  • anxiety, excess worry
  • obsessive compulsive disorder, hair pulling or skin picking
  • panic
  • social anxiety
  • procrastination or perfectionism
  • eating disorders
  • weight loss
  • substance abuse
  • self-injury
  • PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • trichotillomania (hair-pulling)

CBT involves more than you telling me about your week. During the first couple sessions we'll get a clear understanding of what you would like to be different in your life. Sessions then are a combination of talking about what's going on and me introducing different skills to practice or experiment with during the week. Research shows that people who practice the skills between sessions get better faster and stay better longer. Part of the next sessions will be spent checking in on how the skills worked for you.
