I am not now in clinical practice, but below you will find are some potential resources if you are looking for treatment. Referrals are not endorsements or guarantees for treatment methods or treatment outcomes. They are simply a few resources I am including that may be help for you if you are looking for treatment or training in TEAM-CBT. Google can sometimes be an excellent resource for finding therapists in your area.
I regret that I cannot do treatment via email or internet, either, so cannot respond adequately to individuals who describe personal problems and ask me for advice or help. However, I am happy to answer questions in a general way on my website if the question has some teaching potential that others might appreciate.
Although I have moved beyond traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in the development of TEAM-CBT, traditional CBT might still be a good option for many individuals who don’t otherwise have access to good psychotherapy. If you use Google, you can search for a CBT therapist in your area. They have many therapists in the US and around the world.
Some people ask, “help me find a referral in Miami,” or Atlanta, etc. i am working alone and have no help, and do not have any referral lists. You can check the sites below for help, however.
I have no formal affiliation with any of the treatment or training programs listed below, and do not receive any type of financial payment for referrals or from any of the treatment or training programs described below. I am providing this information simply as a public service.
