Dr. Kot is trained in Behavior Therapy (including E/RP) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), two forms of active treatment which are based on clinical research and demonstrate both efficacy and effectiveness for a large range of psychological issues.
Behavior Therapy and CBT are focused psychotherapies for a wide range of psychological problems including depression, anxiety, anger, fears, and others.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that Behavior Therapy and CBT can be as effective as medication for depression, anxiety, obsessions, and other fears.
Furthermore, because patients learn self-help in therapy, they are often able to maintain their improvement after therapy has been completed. What you learn in therapy is what you practice outside of therapy on your own. Research demonstrates that patients who carry out homework assignments get better faster and stay better longer.
Part of your problems may be due to biochemistry, but many other factors – such as the way you think, behave, and relate, as well as current and past life events – are important. Using Behavior Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy does not rule out the use of medication. For most disorders, there is considerable evidence that Behavior Therapy and CBT can be as effective as medication. For very serious levels of depression and anxiety, research suggests that it may be best to combine medication with therapy.
