Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) posits that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected and that by altering one, we invariably alter the other two.

CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response.

These are some of things CBT can help with:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Phobias

  • Panic 

  • Agoraphobia

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Hoarding Disorder

  • Schizophrenia

With CBT, you’ll learn how to adjust thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through a variety of different CBT techniques. 

In addition to learning how to change the thoughts that contribute to mental health symptoms, CBT also encourages something called "behavioral activation." Simply put, these are activities that contribute to feelings of joy, happiness, pride, and overall well being. 

Cognitive behavioral therapy is more than just talk therapy, and can be used in structured sessions or interwoven with other forms of treatments.
