Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is goal-oriented and helps people change both how they think and how they act. Patients learn how to manage their emotions, their urges and tendencies, and their behavior.

Who is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for?

CBT can treat people of all ages and with different issues.

Bipolar Disorder
Eating Disorders
Substance Abuse

CBT for Adults
While the process looks different for each person, CBT has proven to be an effective tool for overcoming difficult mental health issues. Our counselors customize plans for each person to move them toward freedom.

CBT for Children
Cognitive behavioral therapy for children is also common, as behavioral and thought processing changes are easier at a younger age. A version of this method, Cognitive behavioral play therapy (CBPT), uses a more experiential approach and relies less on verbal communication. Through play, CBPT can help children create adaptive coping skills and modify their behavior.

CBT for Families
Cognitive behavioral family therapy helps change communication and relationship habits. It helps families change their interactions and work on improving trust and communication.

How does Cognitive Behavioral Therapy work?

Through a close relationship with a therapist, CBT patients can (1) identify and challenge irrational beliefs and (2) cope with self-destructive thoughts. Through one-on-one time with their counselor and through a series of exercises and “homework assignments,” patients can learn to change their thinking and work on overcoming psychological issues.


Some Other Expressions of CBT
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT): This form of CBT gives people a framework for thinking about and understanding the events in their lives. It give individuals the tools to confront the contrary thinking that affects their emotions and sparks self-sabotage or harmful behaviors.

  • Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT): This form of CBT helps people identify the triggers that lead to negative thoughts and tendencies like suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and substance abuse. It gives them a framework to identify the negativity and the tools to counteract it.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): This form of CBT helps people contextualize and process negative feelings without overreacting to them, by giving tools for processing emotions.
  • Cognitive behavioral play therapy (CBPT): This form of CBT gives children an experiential approach to therapy. Through play, CBPT helps them create adaptive coping skills and adjust their responsive behavior.

We want people to know that they can have better marriages, better relationships, a better view of themselves and the world around them. They can find balance, joy, and purpose.
