Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) is a type of cognitive- behavioral therapy developed by psychologist Albert Ellis. REBT helps clients learn to challenge their own internal beliefs and irrational thinking and develop the habit of thinking in productive and rational ways. REBT therapists help individuals reshape their core beliefs while encouraging the development of healthy emotional expression and behavior.

Rational-Emotive Therapy pays attention to client rules that they use to judge themselves their experiences by. These are the 'should's, 'shouldn't's, 'must's, and 'mustn't's that we tell ourselves. In rational-emotive therapy, clients begin to recognize how these beliefs sometimes actually sabotage our goals, and learn how to transform these beliefs into more flexible, helpful guiding practices.
I am the only therapist in Colorado who has done post-graduate training at the Albert Ellis Institute in New York City in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. This highly-effective type of cognitive therapy is backed by decades of research showing its effectiveness. I have helped many clients overcome issues like anxiety, depression, social anxiety, and low self-esteem using REBT.
