Welcome

 

Hello and welcome to my website. I am one of Washington State’s most experienced specialists in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). I help people to cope with anxiety and to 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 five different ongoing monthly support groups, listed below with dates through December, 2014. These groups are designed to follow or complement a course of individual cognitive-behavioral therapy offered by myself or another therapist.  All but one has an optional secret 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. 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 Signup Genius. 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.  

In May, 2014, I met with four individuals with blood-injection-injury phobia to launch a self-help support group.  Contact me if you'd like more information about participation.  

Future offerings may include groups for individuals with several specific phobias (heights, enclosed spaces, vomit, etc.), a group to address problems with self-esteem, and a group to support people participating in the Beck Diet Solution.  Call me if you are interested.
