What is CBT?

CBT is an evidence-based approach that guides the client to make life and behavior changes through active exploration of the connection between thoughts, feeling and behaviors. It is present focused and goal oriented, offering practical strategies and problem solving to address specific life situations and build resilience. We often integrate CBT with other evidence-based treatments, including mindfulness, exposure and response prevention, acceptance and commitment therapy, family systems, and interpersonal problem solving.
