What is CBT?

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment shown to treat a wide range of psychological disorders.

This problem-focused, goal-directed treatment focuses on the dynamic relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

CBT works by changing people’s attitudes and behavior by identifying the thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that negatively impact emotional life, and in turn leads to problematic behaviors.

The purpose of CBT is to help you learn how to better manage your concerns so that ultimately you can effectively address them independently.

You and your therapist will actively work together to address your concerns and maximize growth.

You may complete exercises in session, such as relaxation training, and you may have homework assignments, such as thought diaries, that help you identify patterns among your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in order to ultimately be better able to manage your challenges independently.

We strive to provide patients with an atmosphere where they can achieve set mental health and personal development milestones, utilizing the latest evidenced-based treatments and therapies.
