OUR APPROACH TO THERAPY

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that has a wealth of empirical research to support its efficacy for a variety of problems. At its core, CBT explores the relationship between one's thinking style (cognitions), the things one does (behaviors), and one’s emotions. CBT is present-focused and goal-oriented. We use the latest research from the neurosciences about how the brain functions and teach our clients how to use this knowledge to change their beliefs and behaviors to achieve their goals. The therapeutic methods we use are evidence-based. They have been developed by scientific research and supported by empirical studies.

 

The objective of therapy is to reduce the discomfort and frustrations due to an issue or condition that prevents individuals from achieving their personal, educational, and /or professional goals. Through therapy, our clients are provided with the knowledge and skills needed to overcome challenges and achieve their goals. We work in a collaborative partnership with our clients to identify objectives then develop strategies to achieve them.
