Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that has been proven to be effective in treating many psychological problems.  CBT is usually short-term (often between 6-20 sessions) and focuses on teaching clients specific skills. CBT focuses on the ways that a person's cognitions, or thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are connected and affect one another.
In addition, in CBT:

  • The therapist and client work together to develop goals for therapy and track progress over time.
  • Goals include working step by step to resolve present-day problems.
  • Clients actively participate in treatment in and out of session and often have assignments to practice skills at home.
