Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy, often known as CBT, is a psychotherapy technique based on the theory that how a person thinks and feels influences how they behave.
Conditions CBT Can Treat
CBT is suitable for patients of all ages, and it can treat a wide range of mental health issues and conditions. These include depression, anger, mood disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, personality disorders, substance abuse, and sleep disorders.
At Harbor Counseling, I also use cognitive behavioral therapy for OCD and trauma-focused CBT for PTSD.
What Happens During a CBT Session?
Your therapist will help you to recognize distressing and upsetting thoughts and ascertain whether they are true. If you can learn skills to modify your thought patterns so they are more accurate in any given situation, you will be able to change your mindset at will.
How Does CBT Work?
Cognitive behavioral therapy works on the theory that how individuals interpret a situation strongly influences their response to it. For example, when a person is upset, their perspective on an event may be distorted.
CBT’s goal is to get patients to understand that the best way to improve their lives is to change the way they think about and approach everyday situations.
What Should You Look For in a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist in Westchester?
A licensed CBT therapist will have completed the cognitive behavioral therapy training and have relevant experience in the field. Carol Pironi LCSW, MAT is a fully licensed therapist specializing in individual, couples, group, and family therapy.
