Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Greenwich, Darien, Westport, Westchester, and Surrounding Areas in Connecticut and New York.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) examines how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are connected to each other. and may interact to create problems in your life. We will work together to help you reframe patterns of unhelpful thinking into more helpful thoughts. We will also work to reduce problematic behaviors and replace them with more adaptive behaviors. Changing your thoughts and behaviors will improve your mood, decrease anxiety, and help with other psychological issues.
Unlike other forms of therapy, CBT is very goal and problem-solving oriented, active, and short-term. We will work together to set goals and measure progress towards them. CBT is a very effective form of therapy, and is considered the gold-standard treatment for many psychiatric and psychological issues.
Is there homework?
Because there is only so much we can do in one therapy session, CBT is most effective when you complete weekly homework assignments to practice what you learned in therapy. We will give you "homework" to practice the skills you learned in therapy each week.
What kind of training do you have in CBT?
All therapists have extensive training in CBT, for both children/adolescents and adults. We have spent several years delivering CBT to a variety of patients. Please contact us to schedule an initial appointment.
