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 Therapy is really useful in seeing the interconnectedness of thoughts, feelings and behavior. We can move from places of rigidity to more flexible and positively adaptive ways of thinking and responding in life.

CBT has been shown to be an effective, evidence-based treatment for many issues. We will work to identify maladaptive thought patterns and tailor treatments to develop a healthier thought life.

I use the empirically evidenced skills and techniques of CBT in an integrative format in my work: rather than teaching my clients to use the homework or techniques to \'fix\' problems, I urge them to learn skills (from CBT) to augment overall healing/progress. I use CBT thoughtfully and mindfully in my work.

I look at how underlying beliefs can distort in unhealthy ways our view of ourselves, others and life in general. By identifying what these beliefs are, then assessing their validity, clients are shown how they can correct these beliefs towards a healthier outlook.

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\'.

I combine my training in CBT with Mindfulness Practices inorder to achieve personal growth, conquer obstacles and gain insight.\n

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.

I primarily use CBT when working with problematic clutter/hoarding disorder. Twice a year, I facilitate a structured 16-week workship called “Buried in Treasures” for people who are overwhelmed by their possessions. I usually do one-on-one work after/concurrent with attendance at a Buried in Treasures workshop, but if you are unable to attend or need to get a start right away, let\'s talk.

The change principles of CBT exist throughout all approaches to counseling. The key is knowing when and how to focus on our beliefs, behaviors, and the way we treat our own feelings. Sometimes it’s most helpful to pay close attention to the bricks and mortar of our minds – through mindfulness, problem-solving, journaling, and other activities – to begin to change embedded patterns.

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.

I don't like these labels and have nothing to add.

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.

I have extensive training in evidence-based approaches to therapy, especially cognitive and behavior therapy.

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.

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.

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.

Looking at core beliefs, why they are what they are and learning to question them are ways in which change can happen.

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.

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.

I utilize Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for children ages 6-17 who have experienced a traumatic or stressful life event that has impacted their functioning. The 15-week course of therapy focuses on understanding and managing the triggers and symptoms of trauma, and emphasizes education, parent support, skill-building, and recovery from traumatic events.

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.

Our thinking impacts everything! Our sense of self. How we relate to the world. What we allow, and what we believe we deserve. Much of what we've learned, and continue to repeat to ourselves, actually isn't true. We want to make our mind an ally, not an adversary. As we develop a healthier relationship with our own mind, our stress reduces, our self-esteem grows and life becomes easier.

Using the insight garnered from our personal work, CBT offers the tools to restructure our thought patterns, modify our emotional responses, and create practical solutions to adapt new healthy behaviors and patterns that lead to successful mental health outcomes.

My longstanding practice involves exploring how our thoughts, feelings, actions and behaviors effect each other every day.

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.
