Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY
Research has proven, time and again, that CBT is a lasting and effective treatment. CBT targets anxiety, depression, and self-esteem problems. Our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world around us can dictate the way we feel, for better and worse.
Depression and anxiety can stem from seeing through a lens of distorted beliefs about yourself. Examples of common irrational beliefs are “I am worthless” and “I will never get better.” When we tell ourselves things like, “Love will never happen to me” and “There is something wrong with me,” we tend to feel hopeless. These beliefs may become self-fulfilling prophecies if left unchecked.
COGNITIVE RESTRUCTURING WITH CBT
Effective therapy actually alters the chemicals in your brain and rewires your neural pathways. This transforms the way you process information about yourself and the world. We will examine how irrational thoughts create depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. We use cognitive restructuring to challenge and transform these beliefs to help you heal.
Behaviors can also influence the way we feel. We will provide practical action strategies to help in the process of healing and restoration. Click on this link to learn about the evidence supporting CBT: Evidence Is In: Psychotherapy Changes the Brain.
