Is Cognitive Therapy right for you?
The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of New Orleans provides psychotherapy and assessment services for adults and children.
With a commitment to the New Orleans area, our philosophy of change begins with warmth and authenticity while adding the technical skills of testing, diagnosis, and treatment selection based on the most current psychological research. Skillfully applied, evidence-based treatment in a comfortable, accepting environment is the hallmark of care you will find at the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of New Orleans.
When you learn CBT you learn how thinking styles affect mood and behavior. Therapy then teaches you how to change that thinking. Practice is essential and CBT involves work, but that work often yields results.
CBT has been shown in hundreds of rigorous, scientific research studies to improve depressed mood, unburden people from anxiety and fears, change relationships for the better, and help people live a richer, fuller life. CBT can also help people cope with life stresses, like illness or divorce.
Just as top medical doctors use the most current research and proven techniques to address your health care needs, the most effective psychotherapists also apply the best science of psychological care.
We invite you to call and schedule a free 25-minute, in-office consultation to discuss how CBT and related therapies might best help you change your life and your relationships to better match your ideal.
Types of Cognitive Therapy
As modern researchers have fine-tuned CBT to address different problems and people, the CBT-informed family of therapies has grown.
For children and adolescents, researchers have refined CBT principles into numerous techniques that have been tailored specifically for them. Behavioral techniques can also help parents learn how to create environments in which their children can thrive.

In addition to the best-tested forms of CBT for adults, the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of New Orleans also specializes in related treatments that have met rigorous academic research standards. These treatments include Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Additionally, when such treatment is indicated, we also offer Cognitive Hypnotherapy (CH), an innovative form of treatment that uses clinical hypnosis in combination with cognitive techniques to help patients reach their personal goals, change their mood, overcome fears, and improve their approach to their relationships and the world around them.

Assessment Services for Children & Adults
When you bring your child for an evaluation, you need to know that the testing environment will give your child every chance to succeed, that the tests will be fair, the results accurate, and that the feedback provided will be valuable, complete, and based on today’s most relevant research on child testing and performance.
Our experienced staff and comfortable setting give parents peace of mind that their child will be assessed fairly and accurately and that results will be communicated in a professional, compassionate, easy-to-understand way. Our team works closely with local schools to provide testing that meets admissions requirements and to ensure these students’ ongoing success. With more than 10 years of experience in psychological assessment for children and adults, you can be assured of fair results and helpful feedback.
We also provide a full suite of assessment services for adults, including Learning Disability and ADHD testing as well as psychological evaluations needed for procedures like bariatric surgery. In all cases, we use proven assessment approaches, the most contemporary tests, and the warmth and consideration you expect from those who care for your well-being.
