Providing Innovative and Highly Effective
Treatment for Anxiety and Depression
I am the Director of the Hudson Valley Center for Cognitive Therapy (HVCCT). Our therapists are warm, dedicated, and highly trained professionals who have specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Goal-oriented and problem-focused, the emphasis of the treatment we provide is teaching individuals specific strategies to change the way they think in order to manage their moods and life problems, build new skills, and develop more effective ways of coping that can be used in everyday life.

Our primary specialty areas are depression and anxiety disorders, including panic attacks, worry, OCD, social anxiety, and phobias. We also have significant experience treating ADHD, Aspergers, marital/relationship issues, and grief and provide academic and psychological testing. We work with adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families.

Special care is taken to match clients with a therapist whose areas of expertise are the best suited to their needs.
