Joseph J. Williams, LMHC, A-CBT

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a certified cognitive therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns and negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Cognitive Therapy was created by Aaron Beck, MD at the University of Pennsylvania, but now practiced as the primary form of therapy all over the world.  "Cognitive" literally means knowing or thinking, so CT emphasizes directly changing how we think.  By changing how we think, we can change our emotional and behavioral reactions.  CT emphasizes interventions such as, evidence based thinking, hypothesis testing our thoughts, activity scheduling and prediction.  It is the most scientifically proven therapy and the "Gold Standard" treatment for depression and anxiety disorders; scientifically proven controlled research trials have shown its effectiveness is often comparable to medication therapy.  CT has also gone on to accumulate hundreds of proven effective results for anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, phobias, marital discord, ADHD, and Asperger’s syndrome, etc.  

Joseph is credentialed by the Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies ( One of only 2 national credentialing organizations standardizing Cognitive Therapy. 

Since CT has become the most proven and recommended type of therapy, many psychotherapists now claim to know how to do CT, unfortunately very few are actually credentialed or trained to do so.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Call me at 917-567-7034 or email me at [email protected] for a consultation today.
