At the Cognitive Therapy Institute (CTI) we strive to offer the highest quality of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to our clients, using established, empirically supported treatment (EST) plans that have proven effective for depression, panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, OCD, social anxiety and other anxiety conditions.  Our primary goal is to be supportive to you, to ensure that you feel cared for and guided in a competent way as you work toward recovery, growth, and achieving your goals.  Our therapists have expertise in CBT, receiving weekly consultation and guidance from Dr. Shenk, a Founding Fellow certified by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy.  We also have extensive training in related treatment strategies such as Mindfulness (MBSR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure Therapy and Assertiveness Training that are integrated in our treatment to ensure that you develop a range of skills that will support optimal health and resiliency. We recognize that each individual or family comes with their own unique background, needs and preferences, thus we attempt to work together with you in a supportive and flexible way to reach your particular goals.  We offer individual and couples therapy, both in person and online (anywhere in California).  We also provide group therapies and other reduced fee options, and under some circumstances a sliding scale fee may be available.

The Cognitive Therapy Institute also offers training and consultations with mental health professionals and supervision of interns regarding the practice of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The training is provided by a certified member of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy.  We also offer classes and consultation to businesses, organizations, and to the general public regarding the personal and professional benefits of CBT.
