  1. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

With numerous options available for online counseling services, finding the right therapist can be challenging. At the Bay Area CBT Center, we exclusively utilize research-based and scientifically proven approaches to facilitate lasting behavioral change and improve all areas of life. Our therapists specialize in online cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), an active and directive approach supported by extensive research. We specialize in treating social anxiety, depression, OCD, bipolar disorder, trauma and PTSD, relationship problems, job burnout, stress & rumination, online couples therapy and more. Our online counseling services provide you with the tools and skills necessary for lasting behavioral change and personal growth. Unlike traditional talk therapy, CBT recognizes that insight alone is insufficient for creating meaningful change. We focus on psychoeducation, equipping you with strategies to understand the connections between thoughts, feelings, sensations, and behaviors. Through tracking, monitoring, and practicing new behaviors, you can enhance various aspects of your life and relationships. Choosing the right therapist is crucial as the therapeutic relationship is deeply personal and intimate. We prioritize establishing a strong bond built on trust, connection, and mutual respect. Our therapists possess the necessary credentials and expertise to address your specific concerns effectively. Additionally, we actively engage in ongoing learning, consulting, and personal therapy to maintain our high standards of integrity and provide cutting-edge, research-based treatments. At the Bay Area CBT Center, we work collaboratively with our clients to assess your options, understand their therapy goals, and match them with the therapist who best suits their needs.

 

At the Bay Area CBT Center, we offer various online and in-person therapy options tailored to individuals, couples and groups.

Through our secure online platform, we offer our clients the ability to receive therapy from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating geographical barriers, and ensuring confidentiality, convenience, and a supportive therapeutic environment.  At the Bay Area CBT Center, we are dedicated to providing accessible, evidence-based online therapy options that cater to the unique needs of individuals and couples. Our therapists guide clients through personalized treatment, empowering them to overcome challenges, improve their mental health, and achieve their therapeutic goals.
