What Else Do I Do?
I am a former member of the Board of Directors of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. Prior to this, I was on the Board of Directors of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America for six years and am now a member of their Leadership Council. I am also a Founding Member of the New York City Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Association and was the Founding President of the Cognitive Therapy Special Interest Group of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.
I like to write. I've written a bunch of articles and book chapters, published my first book (for clinicians) in April 2016 (Treatment Plans and Interventions for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), my second book (for patients) in January 2018 (The 10-Step Depression Relief Workbook: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Approach), my third book (The CBT Workbook for Mental Health) in July of 2021, and am finishing a fourth book (for therapists) on Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia (volume 48 in the Advances in Psychotherapy: Evidence Based Practice series). I also frequently give presentations and workshops on a wide range of topics. Please feel free to contact me if you're interested in having me speak at one of your events.
I also have a special interest in the identification, implementation and evaluation of emerging technologies (e.g., prescription digital therapeutics, wearable emotion prosthetics, care intelligence solutions, etc.) to improve treatment outcomes. I am a former member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Pacifica (now Sanvello) and a former member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Palo Alto Health Sciences (maker of Freespira), and am currently a member of the Scientific Advisory Board Member of Eleos Health.
Finally, I do a lot of work with the media, as part of my "mission" is to educate the public on the latest findings from the world of clinical psychology, using a simple, non-sensationalized approach. As such, I have been featured as an expert on various television and radio shows, as well as in print, and on the web.
