Adult Counseling: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
If you like thinking systematically and rationally, setting agendas, and making clear-cut, action-oriented goals, you might be interested in learning more about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT is a relatively short-term, active treatment for a wide range of mental health issues including: depression, anxiety, anger, loneliness, panic attacks, perfectionism, procrastination, discomfort in social situations, and self-criticism. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been found to be an effective form of treatment for children, adolescents and adults through decades of clinical trials. The focus of treatment is on identifying how you are thinking, feeling, and behaving in your daily life and then understanding how each dimension of these thoughts, emotions and behaviors impact one another.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps people identify patterns of biases in their thinking and provides guidance on how to change these distortions that are negatively impacting their mood and/or behavior. CBT is an empowering treatment that encourages you to test out ways to challenge negative patterns of thought or behavior in between sessions, during real-life situations and stressors, so that you can increase your competency and sense of efficacy in dealing with emotional issues on your own.
