Bay Area CBT Can Help

Your desire to live a fuller, more vital life is the first step toward creating the life you long for. We’d like to help you take the next steps.

The Bay Area Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Center

At the Bay Area CBT Center (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), we dedicate ourselves to integrating an interpersonal approach to a wide variety of evidence-based treatments. We can help you find a path through the often-bewildering maze of interpersonal relationships and life’s challenges by developing healthier and more effective ways of relating—not only to others but to yourself as well.

We are a group practice of behavioral psychologists located in San Francisco and Oakland and specializing in CBT. We specialize in a number of empirically-supported treatments including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), compassion-focused therapy (CFT), mindfulness-based therapies, and schema therapy. We apply behavioral principles while emphasizing an attachment and relational frame that considers the whole person.

Our California licensed clinical psychologists base treatment and therapy on the notion that psychological symptoms occur within an interpersonal context. That could be your relationship with your partner, your boss, your family, your coworkers, or your therapist. The way we interact with others around us maintains and reinforces anxiety, depression, trauma, OCD, chronic pain, and other conditions. And just as our relationships impact our moods, our moods also impact our relationships.

To understand your relationships and how they work (or don’t work) and how they impact your life, we explore not only how you feel but also what you think and how you behave. Our goal is to provide you with effective, collaborative, and active therapy that is specifically tailored to you and your situation—in short, to help you learn the skills you need to live the kind of life your desire.
