What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based in the principles that behaviors, thoughts and emotions all interact, and teaches that problems are a result of unhelpful ways of thinking and unproductive behaviors. In CBT, you’ll build awareness of your thoughts, label them as helpful or unhelpful, and reframe those that are getting in the way of your goals. We’ll also work on increasing productive behaviors. CBT is focused on the “here and now,” is time limited (can be completed in 12-20 sessions), and teaches coping skills to deal with your current life circumstances. My goal is for you to become your own therapist and coach yourself through tough situations going forward.

Here are just a few of the CBT treatments I provide:

Behavioral Activation for Depression
Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP) for Obsessive Complusive Disorder
CBT for Insomnia (CBT-I)
Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Trauma-Focused CBT for PTSD
Organizational Skills Training (OST) and CBT for ADHD
