Nervous about an upcoming job interview? Wanting to invite a new friend for coffee but feeling too shy to do so? This video of Harvard researcher and social psychologist, Dr. Amy Cuddy, is a bit long but well worth watching. Based on research findings, Dr. Cuddy offers a few short and simple exercises designed to help boost confidence in school, work and social settings. These are examples of behavioral tools recommended frequently in CBT psychologist offices.
Welcome. I'm Dr. Sandy Andrews, Ph.D., clinical psychologist in Austin, Texas. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My intent here is to share some of what I know about clinical psychology, CBT in particular, and perspectives gained from across the couch. If you think you might want to set up an appointment, please put the word "appt" in the subject of your email. Ask me about therapy sessions while trail walking. We can "walk it out" rather than be confined to sitting indoors. Insurance generally does not cover therapy outside the office, however.
