Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Do you have irrational thoughts?
Is your mind filled with negative thoughts?
Do you view your world as difficult to manage?
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative form of psychotherapy that can help people with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. It teaches a person new ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to anxiety-inducing, fearful, or distressing situations.
The ‘cognitive’ component of CBT means that we will be examining how thought patterns can contribute towards your symptoms or negatively impact your situation. In taking steps to modify negative patterns, we will work together to reduce the likelihood or intensity of your symptoms and build new positive, healthy behaviors and ways of thinking to help you overcome your current situation and help you become a happier and more successful version of yourself.
While therapy provides a safe, confidential environment to learn and practice a variety of new coping skills, affirmations, and positive behaviors, patients in CBT are encouraged to also practice their new skills outside of sessions in order to better manage their symptoms and to gain more confidence acting on what they’ve learned in situations that may make them feel uncomfortable.
