Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term form of behavioral therapy that can helps people understand the relationships between thoughts, emotions and behaviors. Through CBT, people learn that their thoughts directly influence how they feel and then respond to specific situations. The basic idea is that when one can notice and change their thoughts, the emotions that follow change thus leading to different behaviors. CBT has demonstrated consistent effectiveness and is often a therapeutic technique of choice for treating depression, anxiety, panic disorder and substance use disorder.

Local Experts in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Shannon Heers

I have many trainings and years' experience in CBT, which is an evidence-based treatment for use in anxiety and depression. I work with people to change their negative thought processes and gain more self-awareness into their emotions and feelings.

What we think affects what we feel, which affects our actions. When any one of those areas isn't functioning the way we would want, it can mess with our whole lives. I can work with you to pull apart your thoughts, feelings, and actions to speak truth to yourself in ways that are healthy and help you move in the direction you want to go.

Barb Kamlet

Individual Therapy, Adolescent/Teen Therapy

Our thoughts as much as our emotions drive how we interact with the world. It is part of my practice to look at the impact of early childhood experiences on how we interact with the world as adults, not as a means of blame but as a means of understanding ourselves in that context.

The underlying concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behavior. CBT is generally short-term and focused on helping you deal with a very specific problem. During the course of treatment, you will learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior.

In addition to person-centered, I have most often practiced CBT since being trained back in 2013. I have also offered 'Mind over Mood' group therapy. Together, we look at your narrative in your life and identify false beliefs that lead to specific thoughts that influence specific moods and behaviors. I help you dissect these processes and discard false beliefs that are limiting your life.

Sarah Freeze

Individual Therapy

CBT posits that problems people experience are based on unhelpful ways of thinking and on learned patterns of unhelpful behavior. There are a number of well-researched strategies that we can use to help you recognize when you fall into old patterns and examine whether those thoughts and behaviors are helpful. This therapy targets problems occurring in the here and now.

Erica Faulhaber

Individual Therapy, Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Group Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) looks at a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I love using CBT with folks because if feels natural to most people. When I use this therapy, I like to give my clients homework to practice what they are learning in session. Don't worry, nothing too hard, but more practical ways to respond and relate to life outside of therapy.

Tonia Lowe

When utilizing CBT, my approach is to encourage and challenge clients in areas such as self-observation, negative self-talk, and automatic thoughts as they relate to current problems. Through exploration of these tendencies clients can learn various coping skills needed to work through those problems in a healthy manner.

Crystal Peterson

I do not use a strict CBT protocol because I find that it is not right for all clients, but I use CBT techniques to help clients become aware of their thoughts and challenge them when they are no longer serving them.

CBT is a great way to help us learn to challenge our thinking and behavior patterns that contribute to our suffering.
