Shin OckPsychologist, PhD
Hi, I am Dr. Ock, a clinical psychologist and expert in resilience, and mental health for physicians, achievers, and leaders. Welcome!
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a classic talk therapy technique that helps increase awareness of negative thinking in order to better handle challenging situations. In addition to helping those with mental health disorders (such as anxiety or depression), CBT is also helpful for anyone who is looking to learn how to manage stressful situations. Therapists that use CBT often have a structured program, which involves a set number of sessions. CBT is frequently paired with other treatments, such as medication, when necessary. Think this approach may be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s CBT experts today.
Dealing with the daily struggles of life doesn't have to be faced alone. Focusing on self-growth and resiliency leads to tangible changes in our lives and fosters a mind-body connection. Whether you want to focus on a specific issue or seek proactive change in your life, seeking help is the first step. I'm here to guide that change while helping us focus on measurable results to improve your life. Please scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your contact information to have a conversation.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
Too often we encounter stress and challenges in our lives that we struggle to meet and resolve in healthy and constructive ways. As a result, we can become isolated and lonely, panicked, and anxious by stress or circumstance that threaten to overwhelm us, or sometimes just “stuck” and unsatisfied. Perhaps our old ways of coping with life are no longer as helpful as they once were. We may feel unhappy with ourselves, where we are, and the things we do.
