Dr. Farber has expertise in CBT (cognitive-behavioral thearpy). Dr. Farber completed the Extramural Training Program in cognitive therapy at the Beck Institute in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, and has been treating patients with CBT in private practice since 2004.

Dr. Farber is a strong proponent of psychotherapy as a treatment modality, and works with many of his patients with psychotherapy. However, psychotherpay is not for everyone. Some patients see Dr. Farber for medication management only, as they have a different therapist that they see, or because they are only interested in medication treatment. The decision of which treatment choice is best for each individual is complex, and depends on many factors including the patient's preferences, type and severity of the conditions being treated and multiple other factors. Dr. Farber performs careful evaluation with each patient and then works together with each patient to devise the best treatment plan for them.
