Long Island Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Get Started

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Anxiety, depression, relationship challenges – these are all unique to you and formed through years of your own specific experiences.

Throughout the therapeutic process, we’ll need to determine which therapy style is going to be most successful, and then cater that style to the needs of your recovery.

Our preferred approach here at Long Island Psychology is known as Dynamic Experiential Learning, or DEL, which is an approach Dr. Marc Shulman developed and that we believe is highly effective and unique for those that are struggling with a variety of mental health conditions – as well as those that simply need someone to talk to. But DEL is not right for all patients. In many cases, the solution may be Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is one of the most popular psychological treatments in the United States, and one that has received ample research supporting its efficacy.

CBT approaches challenges by addressing two different issues that relate to mental health and satisfaction:

  • Cognitions (Thoughts)
  • Behaviors

We look at the way you think, including how your thoughts may be unhealthy, biased, or disproportionate to the situation, and use tested strategies to change your mindset into a healthier, happier, and more realistic one. We also look at your behaviors, including how they may be reinforcing your challenges and what you can change to see better results.

CBT on Long Island with Dr. Marc Shulman and Dr. Atara Wertentheil

CBT is one of several approaches that we may take in your therapeutic sessions, but it is an effective one. It also has several benefits over several other types of therapy, including:

  • Goal Oriented – There is a specific end goal with this therapy.
  • Focused on the Present – Your past is important, but not the focus of therapy.
  • Brief – CBT requires fewer sessions to complete your treatment.
  • Actionable – There are concrete strategies that you’ll be able to implement.

With cognitive behavioral therapy, it’s also possible to see the improvements that you make over time, and measure the ways that they’ll benefit you.

Our goal as your therapists is to see what solutions make the most sense for your challenges, whether it’s CBT, Dynamic Experiential Learning, or something else. We’ll explore the right solutions within each session, and then come up with a plan to help you experience the relief that you deserve. If you’re ready for your first consultation, please call us today at (516) 732-0273. We have two offices, including a new one in Rockville Centre and Garden City, NY for your convenience. We also have remote therapy services for anyone in the state of New York.
