About CTA

Our therapists are located across the NYC area.  Here is a list of neighborhoods! But even better, with the changes in insurance policies and the advent of technology, tele-therapy is available for most plans using Zoom or FaceTime.

Cognitive Therapy Associates (CTA) is a network of highly skilled, affiliated therapists (licensed clinical psychologists and social workers) who all use a therapeutic approach called Cognitive Therapy, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This kind of therapy has been demonstrated by clinical studies to be the most effective treatment for a variety of psychological difficulties: depression, anxiety/stress, panic, OCD, phobias, low self esteem, eating disorders, relationship problems, and more. The success of this therapy in clinical practice is rapidly increasing CBT’s popularity as the treatment of choice for those who are seeking therapy.

The clinical director and founder of CTA is Allison Kahner, Psy.D. Dr. Kahner has been in practice since 1993, and she specializes in using both the standard Cognitive Therapy model as well as the Schema-Focused approach to treatment. In addition to managing the network of CTA therapists, Dr. Kahner provides both individual and couples therapy in her Manhattan office, which is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.  In addition, Dr. Kahner recently began acting as managing editor for Therapy Today.

CTA-affiliated therapists are located throughout New York City, Westchester County and Long Island.
