Every person is their own unique individual. The more I meet with clients on Long Island, the more I find that each person has their own needs and challenges that need to be addressed, and there is no one size fits all approach to therapy or counseling.
I’m a firm believer in Dynamic Experiential Learning, as it is my preferred approach to a variety of mental health challenges. But I also believe that there are often other highly successful therapy interventions available, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, more commonly referred to as CBT.
CBT on Long Island – Offices in Garden City, NY and Lawrence, NY
CBT is designed to help address mental health and wellness challenge using a strategies that target cognitions (thoughts) and behaviors. CBT uses tools that include:
Identifying Negative Thoughts and Reframing Them
Training Your Mind to Think Objectively
Identifying Problem Behaviors and Integrating Replacement Behaviors, and More
CBT is also goal oriented, which means that the purpose of the therapy is to someday reduce or eliminate the problem so that you can move forward in life.
I have two offices, one in Garden City, NY and one in Lawrence, NY. When I see patients, I look for signs that they may benefit form CBT, listening to them when they talk about their challenges, their thoughts, how they react to anxiety, stress, and more.
For those that seem like they will benefit best from CBT, we’ll discuss the process involved in cognitive behavioral therapy, create goals that we can use to measure progress, and start using actionable tools that you can start integrating into your life right away to help control the anxiety, depression, addiction, or other challenge you may be struggling with.
