Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)?

What is Cognitive Behavior Therapy?

It is an evidence-based therapy technique that focuses on one’s thoughts and how they can affect our behavior. In CBT, the therapist helps the client identify unhealthy or harmful thought patterns and how these thoughts affect behavior and increase the cycle of depression and anxiety.

Why is CBT effective?

Research has shown that depression can be traced back to unhealthy thinking patterns. CBT aims to identify those thoughts and reframe them into more realistic thoughts. As your therapist, I will teach healthy coping skills that assist the client in creating healthy behaviors.

Why do my thoughts matter?

Our thoughts are directly linked to our behavior. Therefore, if our thought is unhealthy, our behavior will follow suit.

Why will CBT work for me?

There is a significant amount of research behind the practice of CBT. CBT has decreased depression and anxiety, increased self-esteem, helped with marital discord, and more.

As a therapist, I believe in educating each client. We will spend time understanding the practice and reasoning behind the exercise, including in CBT.
