OUR HISTORY: The Center for Cognitive Therapy was founded by Christine A. Padesky, PhD and Kathleen A. Mooney, PhD in 1983 after a request from Aaron T. Beck, MD (the founder of cognitive therapy) to open a therapy and training center in Southern California. The Center for Cognitive Therapy, which originally opened in Newport Beach in 1983, was relocated to Huntington Beach in November 2000. In 1998, The Center for Cognitive Therapy’s website for mental health professionals (www.padesky.com) was launched. Also in 1998, our website for the public (www.MindOverMood.com) was founded. The Mind Over Mood website is specifically designed for the public and provides mental health resources which emphasize the established principles of Beck’s cognitive therapy.
