Practice Statement

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and utilize both in my practice. Both treatments are research based and empirically validated.

CBT:
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is based, at its core, on behavior therapy, in that there
is a stimulus that leads to a response. We can shape behaviors by reinforcing certain
responses and punishing certain responses. When you reinforce a response it is more likely to happen again and when you punish a response it is less likely to occur in the future. The “cognitive” aspect of CBT recognizes how a stimulus affects our thoughts (cognitions) and our feelings. Therefore, a negative stimulus (such as a punch in the face) will bring about negative thoughts about the person who hit you, or self-deprecating thoughts (“I should have fought back”)
