It is HARD to take the first step of getting help but a skillful experienced psychologist CAN help!
Peter Cousins, Psychologist
What 's unique about the ways in which a psychologist helps? Can't anyone give that sort of help?
Psychologists are trained to use evidence and research as a basis of practice, and have five or six years of training after college in helping people as well as researching and reading research about ways to help people change. As you navigate around this website I will show you ways in which people change and how it can bring you happiness!
Often we don't know exactly what the problem is. We know things are not right, but we don't know how to fix it. More often we know how things should be but we don't know how to get there.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT): Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the patient in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments. CBT has been clinically proven to help clients in a relatively short amount of time with a wide range of disorders, including depression and anxiety.

Dr. Cousins was very helpful for me. He does more than just listen but gave me concrete skills to help me with my problem. I had been to other therapists and found that they did little more than listen but Dr. Cousins really has a lot of useful advice! He is not afraid to confront me when I am not working hard either. I really feel I got a lot of value from my visits and understanding about my difficulties!
