Elise (Bourgeois-) Munoz, MSW, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in White Plains
Why wait longer to feel better? Depression and anxiety are painful conditions that are rapidly resolved with evidence-based psychotherapy. I am a licensed psychotherapist experienced in helping children, adolescents and adults to overcome social anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, procrastination and depression. I provide a warm, supportive environment and my approach is active, collaborative, and results-oriented. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): a short-term, highly effective therapeutic approach. I help my patients learn state-of-the-art tools to eliminate anxiety, depression, habits/addictions and relationship difficulties. This includes relapse-prevention skills and techniques.
I am a trained cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist certified in the highly effective TEAM therapy developed by David Burns, MD, (professor at Stanford University, author of best-seller "Feeling Good", "When Panic Attacks" and "Intimate Connections"). CBT is a scientifically-researched approach focused on changing negative thoughts leading to painful emotions.
TEAM therapy improves on CBT by adding motivational tools to increase the individual's commitment to change. Often patients experience significant improvements in just a few months. If you want effective and rapid results and feel ready to get to work, I am the therapist that you are looking for!
