In-Person & Online CBT Therapy

Specialized CBT Counseling That Conveniently Fits Your Schedule

Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, numbness, or depression? Do you feel ill-equipped to deal with conflict, a life transition, or the challenges of personal and professional relationships? Is your mind full of worried thoughts of not being good enough or feeling like an imposter? Are you seeking ways to learn more effective coping strategies and new tools to tackle life’s adversities?

We Can Help

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can help you break unhelpful habits, get unstuck, and make radical changes in your life. CBT is a scientifically proven approach that actually works. Research has shown it is more effective than traditional talk therapy. At the Bay Area CBT Counseling Center, we will help you identify and overcome the obstacles that prevent you from living the kind of life you desire.

To assist you in this process, we offer both in person and online therapy for individuals, couples, and groups. You can meet with your therapist in person at one of our convenient office locations or if your busy schedule doesn’t allow for that flexibility you can meet with your therapist via online therapy/teletherapy. When appropriate, we also offer out-of-office sessions. Sessions are typically 50-minute sessions once a week, and frequency can be adapted to meet your specific needs.

Types of Therapy Sessions


This is the most common type of therapy session. You come to one of our CBT counseling centers—in San Francisco or Oakland and meet with your therapist there. Sessions are typically 50-minutes 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.
