Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that examines and aims to change one’s unhelpful thoughts and behaviors in order to change their emotions. This approach was developed in the 1960s by psychiatrist Aaron Beck. Since its development, it amassed significant evidence to support its effectiveness in treating many conditions, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Anger management
  • Eating disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Sleep issues
  • Substance use
  • and more

CBT will allow you to:

  • identify problem areas in your life
  • become aware of the connection between your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs about these issues and how it impacts your behaviors, and
  • challenge negative or inaccurate thinking patterns to arrive at a more balanced thoughts

This modality can be utilized with individuals of all ages, ranging from children and adolescents to adults. We use Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy to help our younger clients learn these skills in a developmentally appropriate way.
