Psychotherapist in Stamford, CT
Anxiety can function to help you prepare for life’s many challenging situations; however, it can become a problem if it starts interfering with your work, school, relationships, social life, and general daily life. We use ACT and mindfulness techniques to help you better understand your anxiety, tolerate and cope with life's uncertainties, and disengage from intrusive thoughts and worries so that you can feel more enjoyment and presence in your day.
Anxiety and other related conditions are highly treatable using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We know that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected and that they influence one another. CBT aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts using an approach that is both goal-oriented and systematic. CBT can help you improve your emotional regulation, build confidence, and develop better coping skills.
Our approach to treatment utilizes CBT with graded exposure therapy techniques to help individuals cope with triggering situations and thoughts. For individuals with OCD, we will help navigate you through exposure and response prevention therapy so you can face your worries and resist performing compulsions. We will always work with you at your own pace, and you will never be forced to participate in an exposure.
