Learn About My Methods
CBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is the evidence-based treatment of choice for anxiety, depression and a range of mental health challenges. Specific exercises, directives and actions, learned in the office and applied at home, school, and social events, empower individuals to overcome obstacles and more fully enjoy all aspects of life. For children and adolescents, parents receive information and training to participate in and support their children on their individual path to success.
