Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Have you had a healthcare professional recommend Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) but you don’t know what CBT is or who provides this type of treatment? Or are you searching for the right therapist for you but are confused by too much alphabet soup of credentials that leaves you feeling confused, possibly overwhelmed, and without the progress you are seeking?
What is CBT and how can it help?
CBT is a type of counseling, a theoretical approach, and roadmap to healing. There are many different mental health licenses (as described on the Tips page) and professional specialties, and even different licenses in different states. CBT is one of many types, or theories of how therapy works, but CBT is most often recommended as it is one of the oldest, most respected, highly validated forms of treatment used in a wide range of therapy settings. CBT works on how our thinking affects our choices, behaviors and outcomes. Simply put, change your thinking and you can change your life.
If you are looking for help to understand where your thoughts may be sabotaging your happiness and path to a more fulfilling life, CBT may be the answer for you. Darlene Cross has used CBT as the main focus of her therapy practice since she became a licensed mental health professional in 1998. No magical thinking or temporary quick fixes, only real work focused on improved results that last.
