About the HVCCT

The Hudson Valley Center for Cognitive Therapy (HVCCT) is one of the leading psychotherapy practices in the Hudson Valley region, and one of the few that specializes in Cognitive Therapy. Our dedicated and caring therapists are committed to providing their clients with treatment that is effective and time-efficient, with results that last over time.

Therapists at the HVCCT are also committed to the science of psychotherapy. We base our treatment strategies on research data rather than rely solely on the intuition of the therapist. Unlike many other forms of psychotherapy, Cognitive Therapy is extensively researched. Results of decades of research overwhelmingly support the effectiveness of Cognitive Therapy for a wide range of problems, most notably Depression and Anxiety Disorders (including Phobias, Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder). In addition, recent studies indicate that Cognitive Therapy is also effective for sleep disorders, relationship difficulties, stress-related medical conditions, and other problems.
