I've created this website to help people learn more about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based treatments for mental health disorders, such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Phobias, Depression, Insomnia, Trichotillomania (Hair Pulling Disorder), Excoriation (Skin-Picking) Disorder, etc.
You'll also find information on my website that explains the basics about clinical psychology, the differences between different types of therapists, descriptions of some of the more common psychiatric disorders, summaries of evidence-based treatments as well as the key research studies that provide the evidence for the effectiveness of the treatments, and a growing list of different resources (e.g., books, apps, computer programs, websites, etc.) that I think are helpful for patients and their family members, as well as mental health professionals at all stages of training.
In addition, in case you're interested, you can also find out more about me: who I am, what I do, my educational and employment background, what I've been up to in terms of academic and media work, and any breaking news on either where I am going to be presenting or appearing in the media.
Speaking of presenting, please note that I frequently give conference presentations and other invited presentations and workshops on various topics related to mental health to businesses, professional associations, medical centers, clinics, schools, etc. I am always eager to spread the word about CBT, so if you're interested in having me come and speak at your organization or would like more information on the services I offer, please do not hesitate to contact me!
I hope you find this site useful! If there is something you believe I could add - or edit - please let me know!
And remember: "As you think, so you become."
