Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy based on the concept that the way you think and what you do affects your emotions. CBT consists of strategies that help you think and respond realistically to situations by changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors — if you change the way you think, you can change the way you feel. An essential component of CBT is implementing strategies learned in therapy in your everyday life. CBT is an evidence-based practice and extensive research supports is efficacy.
