How Is CBT Different?
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a specialized form of therapy and very few therapists in Santa Cruz, CA may have enough training to offer evidence-based treatments for OCD and anxiety disorders. While many therapists integrate CBT techniques into their therapy style, we are different in that we offer therapy exclusively from the CBT model and incorporate all the aspects of CBT that are known for its effectiveness including goal setting, agenda setting at every session, results tracking, use of evidence-based techniques based on a cognitive conceptualization of your problems and homework in between sessions. In addition, we are trained in all the various forms of CBT that have been researched for each of the various OCD and anxiety disorders.
Do I Qualify for the CBT Online Video Therapy Program in Santa Cruz, CA?
For our online video therapy program in Santa Cruz, CA, we are selective in who would qualify to participate. It is intended for adults age 18+ who have mild to moderate OCD or a specific anxiety disorder such as panic disorder, generalized anxiety/worry, social anxiety, phobias or trichotillomania. If you have severe OCD or depression or you are looking for therapy for a child or teen, then we recommend you work with a therapist or treatment center that can provide in-person treatment.
Schema Therapy through Online Video Therapy in Santa Cruz, CA
