If you complete your paperwork before your first session this will allow Dr Cole time to systematically review your status, discuss a possible prognosis, and begin to develop a mutually agreed upon treatment plan. All of this is a part of what is referred to in the scientific literature as evidence-based care. As a trauma trained mindful cognitive behavioral therapist (MCBT) and, a certified clinical hypnotherapist, Dr Cole specializes in treating individuals 18 years and older with a wide range of conditions like depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anger disorders, and adult AD(H)D. His approach has been widely adopted and is described in the the scientific journal "Cogent Psychology." Dr Cole has simplified his process and made it accessible to the general public in his books titled “Wise Up, Change is Hard: 8 Science-Based Steps for Making it Stick,” and “The Routine Practice Planner.” Dr Cole also treats a number of addictions including alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, narcotic/opioid, pornography, and sex addiction. His approach to addiction is based on the SMART Recovery Model. This model, which is also based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), emphasizes 1) enhancing motivation, 2) refusing to act on urges to use, 3) managing life’s problems in a sensible and effective way without substances, and (4) developing a positive, balanced, and healthy lifestyle.
Because Dr. Cole is in a private, solo practice, he loses the full amount of the cost of your session if you decide to reschedule or cancel your appointment without giving us sufficient time to back-fill your scheduled appointment. Accordingly, we request a 24 hours notice for rescheduling or canceling an appointment. There is no charge for rescheduling or canceling an appointment prior to this 24-hour window of time. If you reschedule or cancel your session without a 24-hour notice we reserve the right to charge the credit card you have on file with our office the full amount of a clinic hour.
