CBT

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Viktor E. Frankl

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is broad class of treatments that helps people to identify the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and develop practical solutions to everyday problems. In CBT, we recognize that not all of our thinking is true or helpful and when we act as if our thoughts are all true, this can cause us difficulties and suffering. Together we are scientists, discovering how your thoughts, feelings and behaviors interact, and then we are experimenting with new perspectives and ways of acting.

As a CBT therapist, I help people:

  • Identify the interaction between thoughts, feelings and behaviors
  • Unhook from unhelpful negative thinking patterns  
  • Discover new behavioral patterns that increase positive moods, a sense of mastery and help build a meaningful life.
  • Face fears that are holding us back
  • Move from self-criticism to self-compassion
  • Develop tools to cope with life’s ups and downs
