Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the important role that our thoughts, beliefs (cognitions) and behaviors play in determining how we feel and behave.

For example, if a student continually thinks about an upcoming test and thinks, "I’m never going to pass that test," then it’s easy to see how his or her anxiety would rise.

Similarly, having hopeless thoughts such as “It’s always going to be this bad,” can also lead to greater feelings of sadness and despair.

By helping clients learn how their own thoughts, beliefs and behaviors can increase or decrease feelings of anxiety or depression, psychologists can help clients begin to change their thought patterns and their behaviors in ways that can reduce or alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

CBT has been shown to be especially helpful for treating anxiety and also can be helpful for treating depression, ADHD and a number of other emotional and behavioral difficulties. Many psychologists utilize CBT along with other approaches to treatment, creating a tailored treatment plan for each individual.

At LifeStance Health, many of our psychologists have advanced training in CBT and utilize it on a daily basis to help clients feel better and improve their lives. To learn more, complete our quick and easy Online Intake Form or call us at (617) 259-1895 today.
