Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) stresses the role thinking plays in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the idea that the way you view your life and respond to events determines your state of mind. We can help you identify, evaluate, and correct the dysfunctional beliefs that underlie your thinking. We work with you to adjust your thoughts in a way that helps you feel differently about yourself and your life. CBT involves looking at the things you do (behavior) and working on activities that help change in how you respond to events and circumstances in your life. CBT is a structured collaboration between patient and provider. This approach has been proven to help clients with a wide range of disorders in a relatively short period of time.
