Dr. Silberman specializes in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of psychological and sleep disorders, including depression, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, and other difficulties. Dr. Silberman works with couples having relationship problems and persons coping with chronic medical illnesses. She also uses CBT for persons wanting to lose weight or quit smoking.
In Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, there is an emphasis on identifying “cognitive distortions”, “automatic thoughts”, and underlying assumptions that lead to an individual having symptoms of depression, anxiety, etc. In addition, we work to identify what behaviors are maintaining, or reinforcing, the symptoms. Together, the patient and psychologist work to modify maladaptive thoughts and change problematic behaviors. This leads to a decrease in distressful symptoms and improved coping skills.
