My Approach to Helping

At Radiant Mind Therapy we offer effective and powerful therapy using the TEAM CBT model developed by prominent psychiatrist and educator, David Burns, MD, over the past 40 years.

Kim Sullivan, LMFT is certified at Level 3 in the TEAM CBT orientation to therapy, which is the advanced level. It took 4 years of study and practice, culminating in an oral exam to achieve this level of certification.

TEAM CBT provides numerous interventions and methods that can target and cure depression, anxiety, personality disorders, habits, and relationship problems. The methods used in this therapeutic orientation have been scientifically tested and empirically measured. They are proven to be effective.

As posted at Feeling Good Institute,
Here are some surprising and exciting statistics:
1. TEAM CBT is 8x more effective than other treatment approaches.
2. Clients reduce suffering on average by 30% in one therapeutic hour
3. Clients can expect meaningful change in 5 therapy sessions

“The above claims are made based on two separate naturalistic studies of the effectiveness of TEAM-CBT. Study 1 was conducted in 2015, across 59 patients. Study #2 was conducted from 2018-2020, across 337 patients. Changes in symptoms were measured using the Brief Mood Survey before and after every session.“(Feeing Good Institute)

Kim Sullivan: I was first introduced to TEAM CBT in July 2019. I received a flier in the mail promoting ‘High-Speed Treatment of Depression and Anxiety Disorders.’ I’m not exactly sure why I decided to attend this 4-day intensive workshop at a cost of $900. Perhaps I was bored with the same boring continuing education trainings that were offered every year. I wanted something stimulating and engaging. Boy! Did I get what I was seeking!

I walked out of the 4-day training with a feeling of euphoria. There was so much information, and it was all New Stuff! I remember feeling completely overwhelmed with everything that I learned and wholly moved by the experience. I remember saying to a friend, ‘I have no idea what I just did, but it was wonderful!’

There was so much information, and so many procedures that I could not keep everything straight. I had the opportunity to chase David Burns across the country to Atlanta 4 months later to do the 4-day intensive training all over again. On the second time through, things were clicking into place. I watched dramatic transformations occur before my eyes. It was magical.

Since then, I have continued to hone my skills in this therapeutic process. I have attended numerous trainings over the past years to target specific diagnoses and to address common treatment failures. Additionally, I regularly participate in a consultation group led by a Level 5 trainer to hone my skills and challenge myself to do my own personal work so that I can show up for my clients proficiently.”
