Dr. Napolitano specializes in the customized application of CBT and DBT with high functioning individuals to help them reach their personal and professional goals. Her approach reflects her extensive training in meditation and mindfulness. She helps individuals maximize their potential and create lives that reflect their values and priorities. Individual sessions are structured and focused on teaching clients the skills they need to change patterns in thinking, behavior and emotional responding that cause distress or interfere with optimal functioning.
“Prior to working with Dr. Napolitano, I had done CBT and DBT with other therapists. I found them all robotic and simplistic. By contrast, Dr. Napolitano is a sophisticated thinker and exceptionally insightful. Her help has been invaluable to me both personally and professionally. In short, she is truly the thinking man’s cognitive therapist.” Michael
