The therapists at Pacific CBT are extensively trained to provide the highest level of evidence-based psychotherapy services to its clients. Beyond their rigorous graduate school studies, each therapist has received additional post-graduate training by masters in the field. They also value ongoing learning through commitment to consultation with experts in the field and by attending continuing education classes and conferences.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy. Pacific CBT therapists utilize standard counseling skills that all therapists are trained to provide. In addition to these techniques, they offer the additional components of cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT therapists provide active listening and empathy coupled with teaching skills to help their clients identify the factors that maintain their presenting concerns and the skills and coping strategies to overcome these factors. Pacific CBT therapists strive to help their clients become their own therapist.
