Results oriented COGNITIVE THERAPY for depression, anxiety, ADHD, careers: Silver Spring

Cognitive Therapy • for Adults 16+   
Silver Spring                -  Blue Cross & Medicare

I'm a Results-Oriented Cognitive Therapist (CBT), with an active, problem-solving approach, to help clients improve their lives and achieve their goals - including overcoming anxiety, depression, career and relationship issues – and coping better with ADHD. 

I don't sit back, listen and nod.  We discuss your issues then work as a team to address them, and build a happier, more rewarding life.  To achieve goals more readily, we often agree on new coping behaviors to practice between sessions - then later discuss your hurdles and successes.

Cognitive Therapy is results-oriented, exploring habitual ways of thinking and feeling to improve how we cope, decide and behave.so we can achieve the kind of life we seek. . But sometimes we need to resolve issues from the past to improve our lives in the present.
