Anxiety and Depression
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): is a relatively short-term, active treatment for a wide range of mental health issues including: discomfort in social situations, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, anger, loneliness, Panic Attacks and Panic Disorder, Bipolar Disorder,Depression, Insomnia, perfectionism, procrastination, medical illness, and self-criticism. Decades of clinical trials demonstrate the effectiveness of CBT as an empirically validated and highly effective form of treatment for children, adolescents and adults. The focus of treatment is on identifying how you are thinking, feeling, and behaving in your daily life and then understanding how these thoughts, emotions and behaviors impact one another. CBT helps people identify patterns of biases/distortions in their thinking and provides guidance on how to change distortions that are negatively impacting mood and behavior. CBT is an empowering treatment that encourages you to test out ways to challenge negative patterns of thought or behavior during real-life situations, so that you can increase your sense of self-efficacy in dealing with emotional issues on your own.
