What it is

As the name suggests, Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on the way people think (“cognitive”) and act (“behavior”).  The concept behind CBT is that our thoughts about a situation affect how we feel emotionally and physically, and how we respond in any given situation. 

How It Works

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that is particularly effective for treating anxiety, depression, reactivity, anger, low self-esteem, depression, and our inner self talk we experience moment to moment.  CBT is widely used because research has shown it to be a very effective form of therapy that is evidence based.  
 
It is based on the notion that what we think, what we do, and how we feel all impact one another. Changes in our thinking process, helps us to change how we feel, behave and experience the world.  CBT helps us to be more aware of how we speak to ourselves and to recognize negative thought patterns so that we can identify them and begin to make positive changes.  

What to expect

CBT is an extremely practical approach to working through life’s challenges.  It helps us to overcome obstacles by observing our thought patterns, changing them to more positive states of mind that we can experience within ourselves, our relationships and in how we handle situations.  We become less reactive and more responsive.  CBT is a powerful tool that gives us the ability to work with ourselves, change our thinking patterns, and experience our world from a more peaceful, calmer and grounded place.
