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.

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. CBT can help to identify and change old storylines (i.e. I'm never good enough, the world is a dangerous place) to improve self-esteem and reduce anxiety.

I use CBT to help clients understand the relationships between their thoughts, emotions, and actions. This work begins with an intake to gain clarity of symptoms, diagnosis, impairments, and treatment goals. CBT helps to create change by treating the unhelpful maintenance factors (e.g., low motivation) through alternative thoughts or behaviors. When change is unhelpful, I help clients find balance through acceptance skills (e.g., mindfulness) and processing stressors.

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.

My primary modality is restoration therapy. Restorative therapy looks at how we are responding to situations in the present in our thoughts, emotions, & actions.

CBT focuses on awareness and reframing thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It can help identify obstacles that prevent positive feelings about ourselves and those around us.

I've been a CBT therapist for 15 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.

What behaviors in your life are not serving you? What thoughts create those behaviors? What beliefs do you have about yourself that influence those thoughts? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provides one of the most well-researched, evidence-based treatments for a host of issues ranging from anxiety and depression to sexual issues and provides a fantastic structure for uncovering core beliefs and challenging thoughts that create harmful patterns and tear down relationships.

CBT is a popular evidence-based therapy that focuses on the relationship among thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In this therapy, you will learn how to evaluate and challenge thoughts that give rise to negative feelings and behaviors. You will also learn how to change problematic behaviors by gradually exposing yourself to triggering situations while practicing new coping strategies.

Thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are all inter-connected. In making alterations to your perspective, you will also be able to change how you feel and change habitual behavior. Through identification of core beliefs, challenging thinking errors, and use of chain analysis, I help clients make changes in their life.

I use CBT with clients to help challenge negative or irrational thoughts to reduce anxiety and depression. We work together over time to identify more positive realistic beliefs or thought patterns to replace the negative. This type of therapy can also address low self esteem or negative view of self.

I see CBT as offering a relatively simple conceptual model for understanding the way our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors all interrelate and maintain each other (for better or worse). It is also a method for starting to notice our habits of thought and behavior that we are largely unaware of. Once we develop some awareness of habitual and unhelpful ways we think, we can start to challenge these habits and develop more realistic and healthy ways of experiencing ourselves and the world.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a structured therapeutic approach with emphasis on teaching skills to change thinking and behaviors that are getting in the way of mental health by working with cognitive restructuring and behavioral changes.

My graduate education was largely based in CBT. I find it a useful tool in getting started, before digging deeper. Many clients have discovered irrational beliefs that have, til now, shaped their world view. Examining these can be a huge step towards change.

Our thoughts and behaviors can keep us trapped in cycles that prevent us from moving forward. I use CBT approaches to help clients recognize and change these cycles. I am also trained in trauma-focused CBT (TF-CBT). This is a treatment that has some similarities to EMDR, and is equally as effective.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is considered among the most rapid in terms of results obtained. What enables CBT to be briefer is its highly instructive nature and the fact that it makes use of homework assignments. CBT is time-limited in that we help clients understand at the very beginning of the therapy process that there will be a point when the formal therapy will end.

Much of my career has been working with individuals and groups from a cognitive behavioral perspective.
