What Is Evidence-Based Treatment?
Mental health has come a long way over the past 30 years. Treatments such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have been shown effective for ailments ranging from anxiety and depression to PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder), and eating disorders. Unfortunately, many people are unaware that these types of treatments even exist.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, or C.B.T., "refers to a number of structured, directive types of psychotherapy that focus on the thoughts behind a patient’s feelings and that often include exposure therapy and other activities." Despite the numerous trials demonstrating its effectiveness in treating common disorders, many practitioners still rely on a kind of *"dim-sum approach — a little of this, a little of that, much of it derived more from the therapist’s biases and training than from the latest research findings." This results in spending longer periods of time in therapy, and thus, more money. Oftentimes, the goals people originally set are never ultimately reached.
I want to save you time, money, and from any extra headaches you don't need. I want to provide you with treatments that have shown results, that are up to date with the latest science, and that are empirically grounded in numerous studies. In other words, I intend for you to receive treatment that is sensitive to you, your time and wallet, and treatment that is so effective it puts me out of a job working for you!
Good therapy does not have to take forever, so why wait? Contact me today to schedule your initial consultation and learn more on how evidence-based treatments can work for you.
