Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is

Focused on the present
  • The first focus in therapy is helping you deal with the most pressing current issues that led to you reaching out. If you are starting therapy for difficulties related to eating or anxiety, for example, then you can expect to discuss the specifics of these issues every week until you are feeling some improvement. Then we can use part of or all of the later sessions to work on broader issues. 
Teaches skills
  • In CBT, you can expect to learn techniques and skills that you can start practicing right away. Therapy is not only a way to gain insights and have support, but also one in which you can gain skills that stay with you long after therapy ends.
  • Numerous research studies have compared CBT to other forms of treatment and shown that CBT is helpful for issues such as binge eating, bulimia, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, and depression. Read more about research on binge eating and bulimia at the blog which includes recent studies on CBT.

Dr. Gupta’s approach to therapy is based on principles of CBT and mindfulness. Within that framework, she incorporates aspects of other forms of therapy on an individualized case-by-case basis.

Before scheduling an appointment, you can speak with Dr. Gupta for a brief, complimentary phone consultation to discuss what you’re going through and whether her style of therapy may be a good fit.
