Dr. Harte's Philosophy
Dr. Harte's approach to treatment is firmly grounded in science. He uses evidence-based psychotherapy and behavior change techniques that focus on modifying problematic thoughts and behaviors that contribute to emotional and behavioral problems like depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and other health conditions. His work is primarily rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is considered the "gold standard" therapy for mood and anxiety conditions. CBT entails learning to identify, challenge, and change the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that keep you stuck, so that you can develop adaptive and effective ways to live your life in the most meaningful way possible. His style is practical, solution-focused, and goal-oriented, aimed at providing you with effective skills for sustained, long-term success.
