Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

In the world of psychotherapy, mental health professionals are certified in using different techniques to treat a number of different disorders. One technique is known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a research-based approach to addressing dysfunctional emotions and behaviors by focusing on a client’s current state of mind rather than on their past.

For those struggling to manage or overcome depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or severe and persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the preferred method of treatment to help people manage the symptoms associated with their mental illness. It also allows people a chance to learn more about their diagnosis and how it affects their mental and physical wellbeing.

Unhealthy patterns and negative thoughts can cause self-destructive behaviors and beliefs and eventually destroy lives and relationships. But armed with insight and the tools to cope with life’s daily stressors in a healthy manner, people can avoid spiraling out of control.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on exploring the relationships among a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Once these patterns are identified, a therapist will actively work to uncover unhealthy feelings and work to develop a structured plan to replace the negative with the positive. In addition to its effectiveness in altering behavior, mental health professionals use this technique when medications are not a viable option for their client. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy also helps people resolve relationship conflicts, cope with grief or loss, overcome trauma related abuse or violence, and learn how to communicate their emotions in a healthy way.
