Welcome

 

Hello and welcome to my website. I am one of Washington State’s most experienced specialists in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). I help adults cope with anxiety, OCD and related disorders, and live a healthy, balanced life. Working from a foundation of a caring, empathic therapy relationship, I can teach you scientifically supported skills to handle your life challenges more effectively. My goal is to help my clients regain their vitality and confidence through learning skills to resolve current problems and reduce troubling symptoms.

Please use this website to learn about me, the issues I work with in my practice, and my approach to helping you. In addition, this website offers useful resources and forms related to my practice.

Sincerely,
Dr. David Kosins

What’s New

I currently facilitate six different ongoing monthly support groups, listed below with dates (subject to change) through December, 2015. These groups are designed to follow or complement a course of individual cognitive-behavioral therapy offered by myself or another therapist. Each has an optional private Facebook Group available for members, to extend the support they experience in monthly sessions. Please call me for further information or to register in advance for a group. There are currently openings in all groups.  If you have already attended a group at some time in the past, it is fine to drop in again.  Just phone to say when you’d like to come, or RSVP on SignUpGenius. Suggested fees for sessions are $75 per meeting, or $300 for any six meetings if paid in advance. If that is prohibitive, you may pay a reduced fee of any amount that is comfortable for you.

One group recently formed, in September 2014, for people with Specific Phobias (blood-injection-injury, vomit, heights, flying, etc.).  Another, focusing on building Self-Confidence, began in late March, 2015 (and has a different fee structure).
