What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT) are evidence-based approaches to mental health treatment that focuses on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As CBT therapies evolve, more elements are incorporated to target different needs. In CBT, learning is vital to the treatment. You will gain new tools, learn and practice new skills, and find more adaptive ways to cope. Research supports the effectiveness of CBT for treating a variety of mental health conditions.
