What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a collaborative, present-focused treatment that focuses on changing patterns of thinking, behavior, and emotional responding that are associated with distress. In CBT, clients learn techniques to recognize and change these patterns to improve daily functioning and life satisfaction.
What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a highly specialized form of CBT designed to help people who have pervasive difficulties managing their emotions. DBT is a mindfulness-based therapy that balances the use of change strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy with acceptance strategies from Zen.
Message from the Director
Welcome! I am Dr. Lisa Napolitano, Founder and Director of CBT/DBT Associates. My colleagues and I are dedicated to providing clients with the highest quality, research-based treatments to fit your needs. Along with CBT and DBT for children, adolescents, and adults, we also provide tailored services for families, young adults, and parents. I specialize in the treatment of emotion regulation problems, including depression, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and impulse control disorders. Many of our staff psychologists specialize in treating specific conditions like trauma, OCD, performance anxiety, and eating disorders. I invite you to read more about our approach or contact us to learn more about how we can best serve you.
