Psychotherapy and the high achiever are a much more natural fit than superficially meets the eye. Psychotherapy, whether in-person or on-line, is an endeavor that requires us to be strong, courageous, daring, vulnerable, and committed – not unlike the ventures that most high achievers are already accustomed to taking. Psychotherapy is a tool used to solve problems and improve our overall well-being. Like other enterprises that many high achievers focus their efforts on, it has a return on investment and can provide quantifiable progress. The initial challenge often lies in overcoming the hesitance that sometimes accompanies trying something new and/or fitting something into your schedule. The rest is “doable.”
Moreover, from a psychological standpoint, engaging in psychotherapy is a sign of personal strength because it indicates that an individual is willing to problem-solve, explore options, work on a solution and build new skills.
We specialize in lawyers and other high achievers, working with them on the obstacles, challenges and concerns they struggle with the most.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
We specialize in science-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a highly researched psychotherapy methodology that has been scientifically proven to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, and other mental health issues. Numerous studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. CBT’s emphasis on logical evidence-based thinking in balance with emotion, customizable methodology, and actionable steps is relatable for the high achiever accustomed to problem solving and analytical thinking. CBT empowers the client with its aim to teach the client how to be their own therapist. Through exercises in session and homework outside of session, clients are empowered to develop coping skills through which they can change their own thinking and behaviors.
