• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based form of psychotherapy that is widely used to treat a variety of conditions including Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as other conditions. With its roots in problem-solving, CBT is a short-term, skills-based approach, and the strategies involved can be adapted and implemented in various parts of a person's life. Different from “talk therapy”, CBT places an emphasis on examining thoughts or cognitions and restructuring them to correct thinking “errors.” Behavioral therapy is based on the premise that all behaviors are learned. The behavioral component of CBT focuses on examining the function of a behavior, and using various tools and strategies to increase positive behaviors and decrease negative ones.
