Dr. Pedoto's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pedoto "Grew up in Jersey City, NJ. Married 35 plus years; one daughter. Musician."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pedoto "Work in this practice is based largely on principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is the most widely used evidence-based psychotherapy. An active-directive (full involvement of therapist in sessions), goal oriented and largely present-centered focus is employed. A premium is placed on challenging and changing ongoing dysfunctional thinking which leads to debilitating emotions (e.g., depression, anxiety, anger) and self-defeating behaviors. Some beliefs held by patients have roots in the past and developed out of family or other key early relationships. These will be explored as well with an emphasis on how not to keep re-indoctrinating yourself with ideas that have caused you misery. Dr. Pedoto studied directly with Dr. Albert Ellis, the "grandfather" of cognitive behavioral therapy and is an Associate Fellow of the Albert Ellis Institute (New York City). He also taught CBT at the graduate level as a tenured professor (retired 2017)."
