Saratoga, CA, April 30, 2014 --( The Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Silicon Valley specializes in practical, goal-oriented therapy and counseling for Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and anxiety-related problems in adults, children and teenagers. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) can help clients increase positive emotions, optimism and resilience while letting go of unhelpful thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

According to Center Director, Laura Johnson, "Our motto is 'Commit, Practice, Succeed.' Our clients who put in the time and effort to get better have success in meeting their goals and changing their lives."

The CBT Center's focus areas include cognitive behavior therapy for the various anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) including:

1) Anxiety Therapy for Adults, Children and Teens

Generalized anxiety (GAD), depression, panic disorder, agoraphobia, specific phobias, social anxiety, selective mutism, anxiety-related insomnia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

2) OCD Therapy for Adults, Children and Teens

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and OCD spectrum disorders such as trichotillomania/hair pulling, chronic skin picking, hypochondriasis/health anxiety, eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder and tic disorders/tourette syndrome.

Johnson said, “I have a passion for my work as a cognitive behavior therapist and helping my clients make lasting changes in their lives. I started the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Silicon Valley because there is a lack of highly-trained cognitive behavior therapists delivering evidence-based CBT and I wanted to be able to help more people with this effective and scientifically-based approach."

The Cognitive Therapy Center of Silicon Valley has four CBT therapists on staff and is the only dedicated CBT Center for Anxiety and OCD south of San Francisco. Their hallmarks include:

- A passion for helping their clients with evidence-based treatments to overcome problems related to anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders;
- A deep understanding of their client’s problems and a genuine caring for their clients’ welfare;
