CBT has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment

CBT is widely used for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, adhd/add, phobias, eating disorders, and panic attacks. The skills you learn in CBT stay with you after the end of treatment!

Therapy has to work.

Good therapy is organized, stays on track, teaches skills, treats you as part of the solution, and helps you get to your goal. If you've been in therapy for more than a year, and you still don't know how to manage your mental health issue, you need to re-think your therapy. 

A true biopsychosocial model...

Good mental health is more than thinking positive...

Since 2003, NECBT has been the leader and innovator in proven CBT based services providing training, clinical psychological services, and life coaching using the NECBT method. 

Results matter.

Common Questions & Answers

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an umbrella term for evidence-based treatment that involves helping patients/clients change their thoughts. Many types of models fall under the CBT category such as Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT.  The CBT model that is used at the American Center for Cognitive Behavioral Training is called Neuro Emotive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, considered the "new school of thought" in CBT due to its structured nature, it's a neurological model and corresponds a step by step self-help manual. 

How long is Cognitive Behavioral Treatment?

ACBT uses the NECBT method.  NE-CBT focuses on how the brain works, focuses on emotion and developing emotional intelligence and goes deeper than traditional "surface" CBT. Treatment for many lasts about 24 - 28 weeks. Please use this as an estimate, because treatment is focused on the individual's ability to start incorporating the skills into their lives.  The treatment combines talk therapy, strong therapeutic bond, and psycho-education delivered in a step by step process.  There is simply no way of telling just how long each person will take. However, less than 1% of our patients stay for longer than one year.  Treatment is based on how you work the program! 

Do you use CBT for children ?

Yes, as long as we have 100% parental compliance. However, with  younger children 9 and younger, we will work primarily with  parents to teach them interventions and tools to use within the household.  Depending on age and issue, we can craft the treatment plan that will have the most optimal outcomes for children and their families. 

Parent Training and Groups

You might have heard that our treatment involves three tiers: individual, groups, and Parent Empowerment Training. This program is for any child or teen and at times some young adults. Parents are taught the same skills as their children in addition to evidence based behavioral skills. The program requires commitment, but you will quickly see, especially if you have been to other private practices or treatment programs, why the program has had the success that it has. It is a short period of time that will provide you with life long skills that can dramatically improve your family's situation and your child's mental health. 

Is your program just a group?

No!  However, treatment does incorporate groups for children, adolescents and for some young adults. The emphasis for us is on individualized, private treatment sessions.  In our program, depending on your age and circumstance - you will have individual treatment, group and behavioral parent training (when working with children and teens - and sometimes young adults). Adults typically just have individual therapy. When you call the office, we can give you a really good idea of what your treatment will most likely consist of, provide you estimates for out of pocket costs - please keep in mind that it is not a guarantee of costs or treatment plan as it is the psychotherapist that will create and conduct the treatment plan. Our I-CBT consultants can only provide you general details.

How will i know when i'm ready to end treatment

We strive to reach each individual's goals in a timely manner.  We believe that good therapy shouldn't require treatment for years and years and we believe that when you learn the skills you are equipped to be your own therapist (to some degree).  However, when it comes to clinical treatment with us, years and years is not an option. Patients are ready to graduate when they feel better and have incorporated the skills into their daily life.   Graduation is when an individual no longer needs to rely on our services and have mastered the skills and techniques that can help them stay "feeling good." 

How much do you cost?

We accept Medicaid, Anthem and Cigna + Monthly program Fee of $55 per month. We also accept partial Out of Network Benefits (OWN) benefits. Out of Network benefits treatment cost is $225 per session, $150 flat rate w/insurance. Effective, May 1st, 2020. Pay as you go by keeping a credit card on file for payments. 

What makes this different than other therapy?

Our therapy has a 90% success rate, this is because our approach is a combination of psycho-education and limited talk therapy. Most therapists use an "eclectic approach" - or relies heavily on "talk therapy".  Our goal is teach how to become your own therapist and not have to rely on therapy for your entire life. Our therapy is organized and goal orientated.  

Fees VS cost of insurance

Your insurance covers your "Face to Face" time only. The fees for the program are separate. We charge a $55.00 monthly program fee in addition to the individual session, group or parent training. This fee keeps the cost of our entire program down. Rather than pay for it separately, the entire programs cost is shared among the participants of the program.  We do not charge for the program in advance because we stand by our work and you can leave at anytime without feeling like you have to finish because you paid such a large payment. 

No Call / NO Show Fees

If you are not available when texting, you will be charged a $90 fee for individuals with insurance and the full rate of $150 /w OWN benefits. You must allow for a :15 gap, in case Dr. Cordier is running behind.
