Welcome to Cognitive Behavioral Services of Connecticut, L.L.C.  

The Private Practice of Dr. Hsiao-ching Chu

I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) treatment for anxiety, depression, and other emotional and behavioral difficulties.  My approach is collaborative, goal-oriented, and results driven.  I help my clients actively build tangible skills to foster change while mindfully maintaining self-compassion in stressful situations (e.g., loving-kindness and a non-critical attitude toward themselves.) I emphasize skill acquisition, skill strengthening, and skill generalization within and between sessions in order to achieve long lasting positive outcomes.  I create a warm, respectful, and non-judgmental environment in which my clients (and their families) feel validated and safe to work through their fears and other difficulties.
