Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), is a present-focused therapy that research has shown to help many different problems including anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, anger, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic attacks, and insomnia. 


The basic principle of CBT is that your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors all influence and change each other. When people are struggling in their lives, it is common to get stuck in a feedback loop where your negative thoughts make you feel worse and make it harder to do the things you want or need to do. CBT helps you understand these patterns and learn skills to change your thinking habits and behaviors that may be holding you back or contributing to your problems.
