Therapy is a very personal process. Sometimes it is necessary to talk about painful feelings or difficult decisions. T FORD CONSULTING offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. This is an opportunity to talk to someone who is trained to listen attentively and help you improve things.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a recommended treatment option for a number of disorders, including:


  • Affective or mood disorders

  • Anxiety

  • Panic disorder

  • Depression

  • Social phobia

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Eating disorders

  • Substance abuse

  • Agoraphobia

  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).


CBT is also frequently used as a tool to deal with chronic pain for patients with a variety of pain disorders such as migraine and tension headaches, RSD, and other forms of chronic pain. It is also used in dealing with personality disorders, fear of public speaking, performance phobias, and range of other problems in which the person is unable to effectively manage behavioral and affective reactions in a variety of situations.


Our goal is to help our clients identify and reduce unhealthy patterns of functioning. Our clients learn techniques that enable them to rid themselves of unwanted habits and establish healthier ways of living.


Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Therapy

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Therapy (MBSR) teaches "mindfulness," which is focusing only on things happening in the present moment.


Mindfulness is not a time to "zone out" or "space out" but is rather a time to purposefully pay attention and be aware of your surroundings, your emotions, your thoughts, and how your body feels. When we gain an understanding how our mind operates we often experience a greater sense of control of ourselves and feel better integrated in our relationships.


By training your mind to focus only on the present, you learn not to get lost in regrets from the past or worries about the future. Letting go of such thoughts may help you worry less and accept things as they are. Mindfulness teaches you to be in control of your mind so that your mind doesn't control you.


MBSR has been shown to be particularly helpful for problems like chronic pain, obsessive thinking and worries and behavioral problems. It teaches “mindfulness,” which is a focus on only things happening in the present moment. T Ford Consulting teaches our clients the tools they to need to calm their mind and body to help them cope with illness, pain, and stress.
