Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a problem-focused therapy aimed at understanding and eliminating unhealthy and irrational thoughts and behaviors on a conscious level. The goal is to replace negative thoughts and maladaptive patterns with more positive and productive thoughts/behaviors. This goal is achieved during therapy sessions as well as monitoring and logging problematic thoughts outside of sessions. CBT is especially helpful for a variety of problems including anxiety disorders, panic attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, and substance abuse disorders.
