Dr. Gottlieb is a psychologist whose specializes in short-term Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). His training includes a B.A. at Yale College,  a Ph.D. at the University of Washington, an internship at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Hospital, and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Stanford Medical School where he specialized in Health Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Techniques.

Dr. Gottlieb works intensively with his clients, applying short-term specific Cognitive Behavioral Therapy strategies for dealing with life difficulties such as  stress, anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), marriage and couples problems, as well as a broad range of other issues facing adults and older adolescents.

In contrast to most traditional psychotherapy approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy  uses focused treatment for specific life difficulties rather than years of “just talking” and exploring every detail of childhood. This results in long-term changes that bring a greater degree of happiness and balance to our lives.

Dr. Gottlieb has helped clients for more than twenty-five  years, and has trained hundreds of professionals in providing cost-effective counseling skills.  Additionally, he has served as a consultant for Kaiser Permanente Health System, the Stanford Pain Medicine Clinic, and many other behavioral health organizations.
