Couple with babyCognitive Behavioral Therapy

I have found that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a therapeutic strategy that is particularly effective and helps individuals respond in relatively shorter time frames than some more "traditional" therapies. I realize that some of the terms used in therapy can be unfamiliar to the public, so a description may help. In more understandable terms, cognitive behavioral therapy (often shortened to CBT) helps to identify the "stories" that we tell ourselves and the inner dialogue that has kept us emotionally stuck, or in a position of dysfunction.

By helping you to re-write the scripts and practicing the use of them internally, I am able to help individuals and couples to change the patterns of response to the stresses of daily life in new and refreshing ways. CBT is a well established and proven methodology. While the name seems a bit challenging, the actual practice and use of this technique is easier and more effective than a variety of other approaches.

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a type of psycho-therapeutic treatment that helps individuals understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including phobias, addiction, depression and anxiety.

Cognitive behavior therapy is generally short-term and focused on helping people deal with a very specific problems. During the course of treatment, individuals learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior.

I welcome your questions about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and how I can help you.
