What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy or psychotherapy that focuses on your patterns of thinking and how thoughts can influence your feelings and behaviors. CBT is a skills-based approach with tools and strategies to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors to enhance well-being.
Examples of unhelpful thought patterns can include: persistent negative beliefs about yourself, others, or the future; unrealistic expectations about pleasing others in order to gain love and acceptance; or engaging in excessive worry in an attempt to reduce anxiety about life's uncertainties. The staff therapists at The Snow Psychology Group, LLC, utilize CBT to help people make changes in their patterns of thinking and behavior so they can feel better, cope more effectively, and move forward towards their personal goals to live a more satisfying life.
CBT is an “evidence-based treatment” because hundreds of published research studies have demonstrated its effectiveness for treating a wide range of psychological difficulties, including depression and anxiety. At The Snow Psychology Group, LLC, our licensed therapists have advanced training in CBT and many years of experience helping people with mood and anxiety difficulties. We conduct CBT using individual, couples, and group therapy modalities.
We hope this helps you to better understand the type of therapy that we practice at The Snow Psychology Group, LLC and whether this may be a good fit for your specific needs.
