Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on the quality of thoughts that a patient has and how these thoughts shape a person’s emotions and in turn, their behavior. Our thought patterns affect how we see our world. A person can be trained to be more self -aware when experiencing intruding, troubling thoughts that cause distress. Part of CBT is to identify the troubling thoughts in the first place and then evaluate the validity of these thoughts.

CBT can be used to help the following conditions:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD)
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Substance use disorders
  • Disordered eating
  • Sexual issues
  • Anger management issues

We can help you challenge automatic and negative fear-based thoughts. You will acquire new skills in cognitive restructuring and be able to solve problems in a more constructive way.
