We are experts in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based cognitive behavior therapy (MBCBT), which are evidence-based, empirically supported, proven treatment in mental health care. On this site, when we refer to CBT, we are automatically referring to MBCBT.
We practice CBT because it works. Our direct experience with clients reflects the broader scientific perspective that CBT is a powerful approach. There are thousands of studies across a variety of disorders, which unequivocally show that CBT is as effective as medication in treating anxiety and depression and more effective than medication in keeping the benefits of treatment after treatment ends.
CBT can be combined with medication to increase success. In most cases, it is preferable first to try CBT alone before adding medication. If medication is used with CBT, it may be optimal once symptoms improve to begin reducing medicine and, possibly, stopping it altogether.
We are here to help you identify options and develop specific steps to reach your goals. Please contact us to set up a consultation for treatment toward a specific psychological problem.
