CBT skills are very  powerful, however it’s hard to to do CBT well. CBT Made Simple is a step by step guide to  basic CBT interventions so that you can  become a more effective therapist.

I wrote CBT Made Simple in clear accessible language. In each chapter I included client/therapist dialogues; video segments that demonstrate CBT interventions; exercises to help you practice what you just learned and suggestions on how to immediately start incorporating CBT into your own therapy practice.

I think that whether you are new to CBT or an experienced CBT therapist you will find that CBT Made Simple will increase your therapy skills.


I am very excited to announce that the first 3 sessions of my on-line CBT training with Wise Mind has been released. WiseMind is offering a 7day free trial when you  join.  

“CBT Made Simple delivers a thorough, clear, and structured approach to learning cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills and applying them to clinical practice. Seasoned and new therapists will benefit from the written exercises, discussion of which interventions to use, and additional online resources to augment their learning. I’m thrilled with the addition of mindfulness concepts in the second edition, which I’ve found add depth and efficacy to my own CBT practice.”
