Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy used to treat a number of mental health concerns.

It works to solve current problems and change unhelpful thinking and behavior. Many counselors that work with clients dealing with anxiety and depression use a blend of cognitive and behavioral therapy. CBT works with problem solving and is action oriented. CBT postulates that disorders, such as depression, have to do with the relationship between something feared and an avoidance response that has resulted in a conditioned fear.

CBT is effective for improving a variety of conditions, including: mood issues such as depression and anxiety.
