Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is an active, skill-based treatment that improves how you feel by changing unhelpful thinking patterns and developing new ways to approach a challenging situation.  I will offer specific strategies related to your unique set of difficulties to help you make these changes and reach your goals.  We will work together to create between-session exercises for you to practice the coping skills so that you become more confident in using these strategies in your day-to-day life.  Decades of research studies show that CBT is a highly effective treatment for emotional and behavioral difficulties, such as anxiety and depression.  

Treatment Duration

CBT is designed to be short term.  Many individuals with specific goals make good progress within 16-24 sessions.  However, the length of treatment various based on the individual and the treatment goals.  Overall, I believe in the importance of helping you learn to use the CBT skills effectively and independently at a pace that feels right for you.
