Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on modifying dysfunctional patterns of thinking and behavior. CBT is rooted in the theory that psychological problems are based, in part, on a combination of faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking and learned patterns of dysfunctional behavior.
CBT is considered a “solutions oriented” form of psychotherapy in that the focus is primarily on the present circumstances in the client’s life and how to cope more effectively moving forward. Throughout treatment, clients will learn how to recognize and challenge distorted thinking patterns and develop problem-solving skills to navigate life more effectively.
CBT is one of the most well-researched therapeutic modalities. Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of CBT in treating a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, addiction, substance abuse, eating disorders, and relationship problems.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other evidence-based practices such as DBT and EMDR as part of a comprehensive holistic treatment plan.
