Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that is helpful in addressing a variety of mental health conditions. The premise of CBT is to increase awareness of inaccurate or negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may be contributing to difficulties, and to build coping resources for challenging and changing these problematic patterns. Many seek CBT because it is evidence-based and is of shorter duration than other types of therapy. The focus of CBT is on the “here-and-now” as opposed to one’s past.
