Jonathan E. Goldberg, PhD, Psychologist in Cambridge
There is no way to adequately describe the experience of living with depression and anxiety. For the roughly 13% of Americans who suffer from these conditions, everyday activities, such as going to work, speaking in class - even meeting friends for dinner - can become agonizing challenges accompanied by a host of negative physical and emotional symptoms. Perhaps you've noticed your face burning when you speak in public; have felt like an impostor at work and wait to be "found out;" or maybe you've experienced a surge of panic (racing-heart, trouble breathing, dizziness, nausea) when you least expected it?
If any of this rings true you are not alone. Fortunately, there are many effective treatments for managing these symptoms. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), an empirically-validated form of psychotherapy, can teach you the skills necessary for silencing the intense physical sensations and thoughts that accompany your anxiety and depression.
As a CBT therapist, my goal is to restore individual confidence, control, self-esteem, and help those who suffer from these conditions regain their normal lives and routines. If you've experienced any of the above, please don't hesitate to contact me. I will take that first step with you.

More about this group

CBT for Panic and Anxiety

A major element of my CBT group is reducing the patterns of avoidance that come to control a person's life. Many people with panic and anxiety disorders experience tremendous discomfort in situations they cannot "get out of" including social gatherings, classrooms, and subway cars. The avoidance of these situations can interfere with the development of academic, professional, and personal goals, and contribute to other mental health issues, including isolation and depression. CBT has been demonstrated in clinical studies to significantly reduce these avoidance-based behaviors and return people to their normal lives and routines. Please contact me to join.
