About Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

What is CBT?

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy CBT is a research-supported approach that guides the client to make life and behavior changes through active exploration of the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.


The majority of patients using research-supported approaches such as CBT experience significant improvement in symptoms and functioning as a result of treatment.

    CBT encompasses a range of evidence-based approaches with established research protocols for treating different conditions.

    CBT works to delineate what is happening in the now and helps individuals make concrete changes to improve their lives.
  • CBT is skills-based.
    CBT provides practical strategies and problem-solving to challenge maladaptive thinking and behavioral patterns in order to improve overall symptoms and functioning.
  • CBT is goal-oriented.
    We will work together to develop a tailored treatment plan with specific goals that are unique to your own needs, history, and values.
  • CBT is active.
    As CBT is an active process, you will be expected to practice and use skills in between sessions.
