CBT and DBT Therapists in NYC
CBT/DBT Associates is a private psychology practice group specializing in cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy in NYC for children, adolescents, and adults, under the directorship of Lisa A. Napolitano, Ph.D. We are a group of behaviorally trained psychologists committed to providing the highest quality, research-based, and cutting edge cognitive-behavioral treatments.
Due to the pandemic, all individual and group sessions will be held remotely until further notice.
Our accelerated, twice-weekly Adult DBT Intensive Workshop will cover the five DBT skill training modules: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and walking the middle path over the course of 9 weeks compared to our standard 20-week timeline for DBT. This workshop is for adults of all ages. Participation in individual therapy is not required.

The goals of our new OCD group are: to provide a supportive environment for individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) to discuss their unique struggles with people who share similar experiences, to engage in exposure exercises to practice pushing back against OCD and taking control of your life, and to learn about OCD, the factors that maintain OCD, and how we treat it.

What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) 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 DBT?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a highly specialized form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 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.
