Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a common form of treatment that centers around investigating the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT is based on the idea that a person's mood is directly related to his or her thought patterns and is intended to help clients to recognize negative or inaccurate thoughts and replace them with healthier, more productive ways of thinking. Cognitive behavioral therapy is used in the treatment of many mental disorders (including anxiety and depression), but can also be helpful for anyone who would benefit from learning how to manage life’s stressful situations in healthier ways.

Local Experts in Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

My formal graduate training was in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. In sessions we will often look at how your thoughts and behaviors interact with how you feel and then work to adjust the ways that you think and act. At times I send my clients home with formal tasks to try in between sessions so that they can integrate the session into their outside life.

I have been trained through my graduate school education and over 50 hours in CEUs on CBT methods for treating anxiety and depression. I believe strongly in the CBT tenant of the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Change your thoughts; change how you act.

Ruth has practiced TF-CBT with children and families since 2010 and has seen positive results with her clients. She utilizes this treatment as her primary speciality in private practice.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy helps us to identify common thinking, behavioral and emotional patterns that we may have learned through life experience, but no longer serve us well. It encourages us to challenge our unrealistic (ie, distorted) thought patterns, and change self-defeating behaviors, to achieve greater emotional wellbeing. This therapy can complement mindfulness and somatic therapies.

(CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach which addresses dysfunctional emotions, maladaptive behaviors, cognitive processes, and contents through a number of goal-oriented, explicit systematic procedures.

I work from a cognitive behavioral model to challenge unhelpful patterns and create new ways of coping with the challenges you are facing.

CBT is a highly structured therapy that is often completed in six to ten sessions. It utilizes homework, and seeks to bring awareness to types of thoughts we have, and the beliefs we hold that allow those thoughts to continue within us.

My approach to therapy is called T.E.A.M. (testing, empathy, agenda setting, and methods). It was developed by Dr. David Burns from Stanford University. It is short-term therapy consisting of a variety of techniques selected based on each client's needs and circumstances. TEAM is unique in that therapy is driven by the client's agenda, not by a diagnosis or a prescribed course of intervention.

While the current vogue is to combine cognitive and behavioral therapies into one school of thought, I see them as two fundamentally different techniques that work powerfully together. Cognitive therapy helps us modify our reactions by reexamining our fundamental assumptions. And behavioral modification is a way of tracking and rebuilding the activities that make up our lives.

We all have studied CBT extensively and approach our work with anxiety from a CBT perspective.

We are not our thoughts and feelings and yet we often function as if we believe we are. CBT helps create some objectivity about our thoughts and feelings, as well as increase our capacity to challenge and change them thereby improving our mood and beliefs about ourselves. I like using an integrative approach that often incorporates CBT skills.

Much of my career has been working with individuals and groups from a cognitive behavioral perspective. There is a strong connection between our thoughts and beliefs, our emotional experiences, and the choices we make. Developing an understanding of that chain and the skills to influence it makes a significant difference in your quality of life.

I work with clients to manage their symptoms of anxiety and depression utilizing CBT strategies. This approach is practical, directive and hands on. We\'ll talk about how thoughts, feelings and behaviors are connected and how to effect positive change by \'doing\' differently. Also, in working with children, CBT is very effective in identifying areas for skills training and growth.

My graduate training focused on learning and practicing CBT with individuals and groups. I believe that thoughts, feelings, and actions are connected and influence one another. I use CBT to help identify and target specific thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that are problematic and work to disengage the cycle of negative influence then replace it with a more adaptive pattern.

CBT is one of the most common practiced and evidenced-based therapies among psychotherapies. Following my master's level training in social work I underwent another two years of supervision utilizing this treatment. This therapy is scientific and teaches skills that can be generalized across life situations. This therapy is very powerful to bring desired change in one’s life.

CBT is the workhorse of therapy. Your thoughts effect your feelings, which propel you into action driving your behavior, which then informs your thoughts and feelings.... Shining a light on whats up with this process and even the core beliefs that lie under it is always a good \'tune up\'.

One of the foundations of CBT is looking at the interaction between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. When one is affected, the other two are also impacted. Emotions are difficult to control, but we can intervene on thoughts or behaviors to see change blossoming in the other two areas. Having more that one point of intervention can make looking at issues less intimidating and feel more solid.

CBT focuses on inner thoughts that drive behaviors. The process involves uncovering thoughts, examining what motivations might inspire them, and questioning whether they are still relevant to the current situation. CBT seeks to then change these thoughts. I diverge from CBT in that I don’t ask my clients to directly change thoughts. I encourage clients accept how thoughts might have been helpful.

CBT is based on the premise that thoughts, behaviors and emotions are intertwined. When we attend to one of these aspects, change is affected across the others. My graduate training and current practice have consisted of assessment and intervention strategies rooted in this theory.

CBT is a theory that has been empirically proven (a.k.a. it works!) to help with a variety of issues. I have used in in a variety of situations because of its versatility and effectiveness.

Understanding what we do and how we think is so important regarding therapy, change, health, and healing. It is little wonder that CBT has been proven to be so highly effective in a wide variety of mental health issues. I have a basis of working from a CBT foundation.

With Cognitive Behavioral counseling one of the basic ideas I often talk to my clients about is the ABC's of emotions. A is the activating event, B is the way we interpret or evaluate the event, and C is the emotional consequence. We often jump from A to C so when we practice mindfulness and pausing, taking space, and slowing down we can learn to respond vs. react impulsively.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was a prominent approach in the 18 years of community mental health work I had the privilege to engage in. I was able to help clients formulate clear goals, develop applicable ways to practice useful techniques, and change thinking patterns that kept clients feeling stuck.

Cognitive theories are often one of the most beneficial evidence based practices utilized in therapy. This approach allows you to explore thought processes that take us out of the moment and can often create stress and anxiety.

CBT is based on the recognition that our emotional life is intimately interconnected with our ways of perceiving, and our actions/behaviors. Bringing close attention to what we are thinking and doing sets the stage for freeing ourselves from conditioned patterns that aren't working. CBT offers a direct, 'rubber to the road' quality of actively trying out new ways seeing and doing.

Cognitive Behavioral therapy is one of the best ways to address depression and anxiety symptoms. It helps look at and shift some of the thoughts that can negatively impact how you feel and act. Sometimes our perceptions and thoughts about events or people or even life become so automatic that we aren\'t even sure what we are responding to anymore.

I regularly use cognitive behavioral techniques to help clients change their thought patterns.

I incorporate elements of CBT therapy in to the treatment of many types of disorders and emotional experiences, including depression, trauma, anxiety, anger management, and self-esteem.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based in the belief that our beliefs and self talk regarding events in our life are the cause of our distress. Creating ways of disrupting the automatic patterns that lead us down paths of dysfunction such as thought correcting exercises and mindfulness practices are key to creating our recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on the connection and intersection between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors/actions. Our thoughts and how we think about ourself, others, and situations has a huge impact on how we feel and respond.

I use an evidence-based approach to treatment in conjunction with personal creativity, humor and wilderness experiences.

There are specific steps you can take to find Food Freedom! I will show you the steps and help you take them. This is the key to addressing the underlying issues and having a trusting relationship with food and with yourself.

The human capacity for language allows us to solve problem abstractly in our heads. This can be a blessing or a curse. Because of this capacity, we can actually think our way into misery. Becoming more aware of how we tend to do this and learning new internal 'scripts' can impact our ability to enjoy life.

CBT empowers people by increasing awareness of how thoughts and behavior affects how we feel. My training in CBT also includes Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP), which is an evidence-based treatment for anxiety.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be helpful to gain insight and awareness into our behaviors. I have experience using CBT to help treat a variety of issues such as: depression, anxiety, substance use, and anger management.

I\'ve been a CBT therapist for 12 years. I believe we unintentionally create our own misery in the way we interpret the world in childhood. We take those beliefs into adulthood and don\'t have the awareness to realize our original thinking may have been faulty. I work to identify the ways you view the world that cause pain instead of happiness and help you adapt healthier thinking patterns.

I am training in Trauma Focused CBT. I believe in deconstructing thinking errors as a means toward mental health. I do not adhere to a strictly CBT approach, but I do borrow heavily from the modality.

I work with people to help them understand the connection between their thoughts, their feelings, and their actions so that they can notice what they are doing, and positive changes in their lives. This type of therapy is really useful for people with anxiety, depression, and trauma. Additionally, I often teach these skills to parents when their children have challenging behaviors.

Then within 24 hours after your session I send you a individualized plan as a road map to help you continue to make ground on what you want to overcome.

CBT focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. In CBT, the client and therapist identify distorted thought patterns and explore alternative explanations. There is typically homework assigned to monitor and document thoughts. CBT is useful for a variety of disorders, including anxiety and depression.

There is no question that thought and behaviors are connected. I can help clear the path of what is leading what and how to compartmentalize your thoughts.

At the core, CBT recognizes the connection between our feelings, our perceptions and our actions. By examining each of these separately and together, we can recognize patterns that are helping and hurting us. \nCognitive behavioral therapy is great for folks with anxiety, depression and works well with kids and with adults.

CBT is simple, very effective and can be difficult. When we realize that attached to every thought is a belief about ourselves and the world that may not even be our own, we begin our work on re-building a belief system that is effective and satisfying for us.

I work with clients to understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and actions in order to make positive changes in their lives. This can be of especial help when clients feel that they are out of control and reacting rather than responding intentionally. It is also helpful for people who struggle with anxiety or depression.

As a class of interventions, CBT has received more empirical support than any other type of intervention - and this is precisely why our practice has a strong emphasis on CBT. We like to think of ourselves as cBt (i.e. little c, big B) in our implementation of CBT, meaning that we tend to emphasize cognitive change through experience, exposure, and skills building.

Primarily my cognitive-behavioral interventions, include exposure with response prevention, cognitive restructuring, relaxation training, social skills training, and stress management.

How we think about things affects our behaviors. How we behave affects how we think and what we believe. Too often our beliefs about ourselves or other people do what they do are distorted or incomplete. Challenging those beliefs opens up new ways of behaving and interacting with ourselves and the world.

I believe that sometimes using visuals, audios and other material will aid in helping one to change their thinking and then their behavior. With that said, you will be given tools, homework, in-session work, aides, etc to assist you in your life long changes.

I was trained by the Beck Institute (founder Aaron Beck developed CBT) in CBT and use it, along with mindfulness, to treat many issues including depression and anxiety.
