Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
for children and adults

The Approach 

In my practice, I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach called TEAM-CBT. This approach was developed by Dr. David Burns, psychiatrist and professor emeritus in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. TEAM-CBT supports a more rapid recovery and relief from symptoms of mood and anxiety-based disorders.

T – Testing. I use a standard measure to test and collect information on mood, anxiety, safety, anger, happiness, and the quality of relationships.

 

E – Empathy. Your experiences matter and it is important for me to understand your stories and life events.

 

A – Assessment of resistance. Therapy takes time, effort, and courage. Your success depends on your willingness to do the work and apply the tools you will learn in therapy.

 

M – Methods. I will identify the appropriate methods and tools that will allow you to identify the thoughts and feelings that make you feel anxious and depressed. If you are ready to make a change, these methods will teach you how to feel good about who you are.
