About the HVCCT

The Hudson Valley Center for Cognitive Therapy (HVCCT) was founded by Dr. Christine Ziegler in 2001 and has become one of the leading psychotherapy practices in the Hudson Valley region. It is also one of the few centers in our area that specializes in Cognitive Therapy. Our dedicated and caring therapists are committed to providing their clients with treatment that is effective and time-efficient, with results that last over time.

Therapists at the HVCCT are committed to the science of psychotherapy. We base our treatment strategies on research data and provide evidence-based treatment. We at the HVCCT believe it is important to stay abreast of the current trends in psychotherapy research and are often asked to give lectures and workshops for other health professionals.

The HVCCT is best known for our work in mood and anxiety disorders. All of our therapists have significant experience in working with excessive worry, fears and phobias, panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression. In addition to specializing in mood anxiety disorders, each therapist has a number of additional niche areas. To name a few, these include hair pulling/skin picking, ADHD, autism, sleep disorders, relationship difficulties, and stress-related medical issues.

Each of our therapists has undergone rigorous training in Cognitive Therapy and has significant clinical experience. Our therapists consistently adhere to the highest standards of the profession and are typically described as warm, relatable, and engaging. Because we realize the importance of choosing the right therapist, we place a priority in making the best client-therapist match. When you call the HVCCT, Dr. Ziegler, the HVCCT Director, will speak with you to get a an understanding of what you are looking to work on so you will work with the therapist whose areas of expertise are best matched for your needs. Great care is taken to ensure our clients feel comfortable with their therapists and confident they are receiving the highest quality care.

The HVCCT primarily serves the following areas: Rockland County, Orange County, Westchester County, and Bergen County.
