Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
The foundation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy [CBT] is an understanding that its not the situation itself that causes us distress, but rather our thoughts about it.
Our thoughts are directly connected to how we feel, and we often respond to situations based on how we feel. Therefore, the way to improve your distress is to look at your thought patterns.
- Do you find yourself thinking the worst case scenario?
- Do you often expect bad things to happen?
- Are you consumed with negative or fearful thoughts?
- Do you notice yourself stuck in feelings of guilt, anxiety, or depression?
CBT is an evidence-based therapy technique that is proven to be effective for anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, and more.
Using a CBT approach, you will recognize underlying thought patterns that impact your emotions & behaviors, learn how to question your thoughts, and practice creating rational counter-statements.
With repetition of the the learned CBT techniques, you will recondition your thought process, allowing you to make decisions with rational thoughts rather than responding to emotion.
CBT is just one of the many techniques we implement in our individualized therapy approach!
