Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) on Long Island’s South Shore
I am a Clinical Psychologist practicing in Rockville Centre, NY. I provide specialized, cutting-edge treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety, and other related conditions.
I know that it has been hard. Many people suffer for years before seeking treatment. Others have felt the frustration of investing time and money into treatments that haven’t helped much. Based on your experiences, or what you’ve read or heard, you may be worried about what therapy will be like. Will it be too hard? Will the therapist “get me?” Will it be too embarrassing to share the things I worry about or discuss my private behaviors? Is any amount of talking really going to help?
In many cases, talking alone is not the answer. Overcoming some of these obstacles will most likely require hard work, not just in my office but in between sessions, at home, and wherever you are struggling. But we’ll find the right place to start, and we won’t push the boundaries farther than you are ready for.
When I first meet you, my assumption is that you have been doing the very best you can to survive and live your life despite the obstacles that you face. But I’ll have some new ideas for you – different perspectives on your situation and ways to manage them for you to consider and take for a test-drive. I’ll also have techniques new and old for us to discuss, refine, apply, and troubleshoot, backed by my experience as well as decades of extensive research into these conditions and their treatment.
My goal is to get to know you as an individual and for the two of us to work together to create a plan that reflects your goals, cutting-edge research, and a pace that works for you.
