We all experience occasional sadness or nervous energy from time to time. But when these feelings persist or prevent us from achieving a fulfilling life, we may be dealing with a more serious issue.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (or CBT) works to help you focus on identifying and becoming familiar with certain thoughts and behavioral patterns you experience every day that may be causing negative outcomes or experiences (Anxiety and Depression Association of America).
What is Cognitive Behavior Therapy
CBT allows you to take a proactive role in your therapy sessions. It helps you to recognize and identify specific thoughts and feelings that may be triggering unwanted emotional responses or feelings of anxiety.
By working with your therapist, you’ll come up with creative problem-solving strategies to cope with anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders affecting your relationships, professional career, marriage, and family life.
