CBT California

We are Southern California’s leading center for cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), founded by award-winning clinicians and scholars. We are dedicated to bringing you state of the art, scientifically sound treatments. If you have tried other therapies and not gotten the results that you hoped for, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) may help. It is the most studied psychotherapy. Its effectiveness is unparalleled. However, the treatment is often only as effective as the clinician providing it. Fortunately, our CBT programs were founded by leaders in the field of treatment and research in CBT. Dr. McFarr founded the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Clinic (CBT) and the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) clinics at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Our faculty has been entrusted by UCLA, USC and UCI to train other clinicians how to do cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Feel free to look at our professional presentations, publications and teaching references below. Our professional clinical psychologists and psychotherapists provide cognitive behavioral treatments in many areas. Whether you suffer from depression, panic attacks, OCD, eating disorders, substance abuse, or other anxiety disorders, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help. If you have problems with emotional regulation, self harm, or intense, unsatisfying relationships, CBT or Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) can help. We are home to DBT California, the leading high-fidelity, comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program in Southern California. DBT was designed to help people suffering from multiple problems simultaneously. With offices in San Diego, Orange County (Newport Beach), Torrance, and Beverly Hills/Mid Wilshire (Los Angeles), we are here to serve you.
