California Online Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from the comfort of your home

With all the different options that are currently available for online counseling, it may feel difficult to find a therapist who is the right fit for you. The Bay Area CBT Center only utilizes research-based and scientifically proven approaches to help you create lasting behavioral change and improve all areas of life. Our therapists are all experts in the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and specialize and research-based treatments.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an active, directive, and scientifically proven approach. Online CBT counseling will teach you the tools and the skills that you need to create lasting behavioral change and improve all areas of your life. Cognitive behavioral therapy, unlike regular talk therapy, works on the assumption that insight alone is not enough to create behavioral change. We need the psychoeducation, the tools, and the strategies for understanding the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, sensations, and behaviors. Through tracking, monitoring, and practicing new behaviors we can improve all areas of our lives and our relationships.
The therapeutic relationship is an extremely personal and intimate experience. You don’t want to just choose any therapist to help you and teach you the skills you need to improve your life. When choosing a therapist, you want to make sure that first of all you get along with your therapist and feel a trust and connection with them, but also that they have the right credentials and expertise with the issues that you need help with.
The Bay Area CBT Center is founded and led by therapists. We hold ourselves accountable and do our own learning, consulting, and individual work in therapy. We practice what we preach and hold ourselves to a high standard of integrity in conducting effective, cutting-edge, research-based treatments that actually work. We will assess your options with you, explore what’s bringing you to therapy, and make sure to find you the therapist that is the best fit for you and your needs.

Types of Therapy Sessions

In Person

This is the most common type of therapy session. You come to one of our offices—in San Francisco or Oakland and meet with your therapist there. Sessions are typically 50-minnutes long and occur once a week, multiple times a week, or every other week.

Online Therapy/Teletherapy

We know that in today’s fast-paced world, it’s often difficult to make time for self-care. Therefore, we also offer online therapy through video or phone to help you fit your psychological health care into your busy schedule. Another option is to alternate between online therapy and in-office sessions, depending on your specific needs.

Therapy Outside of the Office

If your situation warrants it, we also provide therapy outside the office. For example, if you struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), hoarding, or social anxiety, we may conduct therapy-assisted exposures and accompany you to the location or situation that you fear. Practicing exposure in the real world is the most effective and efficient way to overcome OCD, hoarding, social anxiety, and specific phobias. In this form of exposure treatment, your therapist will go with you to the feared location or situation, such as driving on a bridge, going to a crowded shopping mall, or visiting a dog park, and provide you with the coaching you need in the moment. This helps you develop the tools you need to cope more effectively with your anxiety on your own.

Free Sessions

We're offering free and low fee therapy for a limited time to individuals who are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic who can't afford therapy.
