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.

CBT has been proven to be effective for a variety of issues and has been one of my most used therapies for over 10 years with consistently positive results.

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.

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.
