Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Understanding Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

If you are interested in pursuing CBT, it's important to understand what it is in a bit more depth. CBT has both cognitive and behavioral components. Cognitive therapy addresses the thinking that often underlies a wide variety of disorders. This therapy is frequently used to treat anxiety disorders, including OCD and PTSD, mood disorders, such as, Major Depressive Disorder, and insomnia. Sessions involve the patient talking about their challenges with a counselor, identifying negative, distorted, extreme or exaggerated thinking patterns. Modifying these ways of thinking helps people learn to view situations more realistically. The behavioral component is action oriented, and is based on the principles of behavioral psychology. If you'd like more information about CBT, don't hesitate to reach out by phone or fill out the contact form online.

Confidential CBT in a Comfortable Environment

As with other types of psychotherapy service offered, we ensure that cognitive-behavioral counseling is conducted in a comfortable environment where clients feel safe and supported. Discussion your experiences is often highly personal and can be emotionally challenging to talk about. We do our best to assure you feel safe and that you have a confidential place to address your issues. We offer a relaxed, judgment-free zone, in which clients can discuss their personal lives and challenges without fear. The therapist will listen intently, offer constructive feedback, and help clients overcome or work through their mental health afflictions. With insight and support, you will find the strength to move forward in new ways. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, or trauma, or a variety of other issues, cognitive behavioral therapy can really help. Get in touch for more information!

Personalized CBT Sessions

We take this to heart here at Richard A Waldman MD, which is why we always take the time to get to know our patients and understand their needs. Once we have a firm grasp of the difficulties you are facing, your psychiatrist will be able to provide you with the best approach to overcoming them.
