Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a research-supported treatment that focuses on altering patterns of thinking that amplify your distress. The counselors at Star Meadow Counseling incorporate elements of CBT therapy in to their treatment of many types of disorders and emotional experiences, including depression, trauma, anxiety, anger management, and self-esteem.
For example, a person who is depressed may have the belief, “I am worthless,” and a person with a phobia may have the belief, “I am in danger.” While the person in distress likely holds such beliefs with great conviction, with a therapist’s help, clients are encouraged to challenge negative thinking. People who seek CBT can expect their therapist to be active and goal-directed.
