At Mt Kisco CBT, our clinicians strongly believe that treatment is most successful in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. We work collaboratively with each client to set and work towards personalized goals. Therapy can be short term or long term; some clients come weekly for 3 to 4 months until symptoms decrease, while others remain in therapy for longer periods of time and set new goals.
Our clinicians have expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). CBT is a treatment based on scientific research and proven to be effective for a wide range of mood, anxiety, and relationship issues. The focus of CBT is noticing and then examining what you are thinking, feeling, and doing today, rather than focusing on the past. For more information on CBT, click here.
ACT, along with other mindfulness-based approaches, has also been shown to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, and other related difficulties. Mindfulness involves paying attention, non-judgmentally, to the present moment. This means noticing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they occur and with a balanced, objective perspective.

Our clinicians also conduct individual DBT therapy with individuals who are currently enrolled in or have already completed DBT skills group. At times, we may conduct individual and family skills training sessions, when appropriate.
