Our Certified Cognitive Therapists

The Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Silicon Valley and Sacramento Valley now has three certified cognitive therapists with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. We are unique in being the only CBT Center in the Silicon Valley and Sacramento Valley with more than one certified cognitive therapist. In fact, most therapists who say they practice CBT are not certified by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy because it requires a big time and training commitment to learn how to provide true evidence-based CBT according to the Academy’s criteria for CBT excellence.

About the Academy of Cognitive Therapy

The Academy of Cognitive Therapy is the only certifying organization for cognitive-behavioral therapy. In order to meet the Academy’s standards for CBT excellence, therapists must have the necessary training, experience, and knowledge to be highly effective cognitive-behavioral therapists and have demonstrated an advanced level of expertise in cognitive behavior therapy by submitting and achieving passing scores on both a case conceptualization and an audiotaped session with a real patient.
