Janet Bosworth, LMFT

  My name is Janet Bosworth, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT50580).   I practice child therapy integrating play therapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques.  My focus is on treating anxiety problems such as separation anxiety, school refusal, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.  I also have experience in providing therapy to children who have difficulties with emotional regulation and social skills. Although, I do not provide psychological assessment services I work cooperatively with licensed psychologists, schools, and other agencies and organizations who do provide such services.

  I also work with teens and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, and relationship problems.  I have experience in working with members of the LGBTQ community regarding relationship issues and issues pertaining to sexual and/or gender identity.  I do not work with addiction and substance abuse problems.  I provide supportive and resilience therapy for children, teens, and adults who are experiencing loss and grief.  I have a B.A in Psychology from San Francisco State University and an M.S. in Clinical Psychology from the same institution.  I hold a M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University.  I trained in TEAM CBT with Dr. David Burns (founder of the Feeling Good Institute and best-selling author) for approximately one and a half years through the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University.  I have also completed a twelve-week training course on utilizing CBT in working with children and teens for which I have received a certificate.  The course was taught by Taylor Chesney, PsyD who is the Director of the Feeling Good Institute in Manhatten, New York.

 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based approach to therapy.  Unlike traditional talk therapies which are primarily supportive, CBT is a more structured and goal-oriented approach.  The focus in CBT is on achieving results such as a reduction in anxiety.  This approach often involves the use of psycho-education, structured activities and homework assignments, and requires a willingness to participate. I look forward to working with you!
