CBT Empowers You to See the World in More Realistic Ways & Overcome Irrational Thoughts

While we may not be consciously aware of it, our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world around us can dictate the way we feel—for better and worse—on a daily basis. 

If you have negative beliefs, you’re probably seeing the world through a distorted lens.

News flash: your reality is not always reality.

That’s why we use a powerful method of therapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you fight back against your negative thoughts so you can see the world more clearly.

Research has even proven that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a lasting and effective therapy treatment that can help lead to significant changes in every area of your life. 

CBT takes the scientific method and applies it to irrational thoughts, interrupting black and white thinking and helping you consider a larger perspective.  

Through this structured therapy approach, we examine the evidence for and against irrational thoughts and help you develop more balanced, realistic, and empowered ways of seeing the world.

CBT Helps Us Become Empowered and Effective

CBT Helps Us Unravel Unconscious Fear and Distorted Ways of Seeing the World

So often, we don’t even realize we’re navigating the world out of fear. 

We think that’s just the way things are. 

And when we’re afraid, it distorts our ability to relate to things in an empowered and effective way. 

Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, we face our fears head on and begin to deal with reality in a way that allows us to grow and thrive. 

CBT will help you gain a better understanding of yourself and other people, improving your interpersonal skills and self-awareness, thereby improving your ability to navigate relationships and resolve conflicts. 

Mental health concerns like depression and anxiety can arise from seeing the world through the lens of distorted beliefs, irrational thoughts, and unconscious filters that are biased. 

Examples of common thought distortions are “I am worthless” and “I will never get better.” 

These beliefs may become self-fulfilling prophecies if left unchecked, and can lead to a self-reinforcing feedback loop that’s hard to break out of. 

However, CBT is a pattern interrupt that helps you break the cycle and navigate your life with greater peace, joy, and empowerment.

The Benefits of Choosing Us for CBT Therapy

Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT)

How TF-CBT Can Help Overcome Trauma

When we experience trauma, sometimes we begin to feel like our pain is who we are.

In the midst of pain and trauma it can be difficult to see the possibility of healing—especially if the trauma caused depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, or an eating disorder.

Trauma-focused therapy is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that addresses the emotional and mental health necessities of survivors who are trying to regain normalcy in the aftermath of trauma.

However, no matter how unthinkable your trauma is, we’re here to help you discover that your pain does not define you.

Using TF-CBT and moving at a pace that is comfortable for you, we will create a safe place for you to process your trauma so that it no longer rules your life.

If trauma is left untreated, it can lead to anger, guilt, self-harm, acting out, mental health issues, and feelings of powerlessness.

PTSD is not always obvious to the untrained eye. PTSD can manifest in behaviors such as emotional numbness, concentration problems, sleep issues, and emotional and physical pain.

Trying to take on this burden by yourself may seem nearly impossible, but that’s where we come in.

No matter how debilitating your trauma is, our Trauma-Focused CBT therapists are here for you and can help.

TF-CBT for Children & Teens

Teens & Children Who Experience Trauma Benefit from TF-CBT

Trauma-Focused CBT has been proven particularly effective in the treatment of children and adolescents who have experienced trauma.

This approach uses trauma-sensitive interventions, combined with cognitive-behavioral therapy, family, therapy, and humanistic therapy principles to help you heal.

We teach children and parents techniques to help process thoughts and feelings related to the negative event, and we help you enhance safety skills, increase family communication, and resolve distressing thoughts.
