Desert Insight is a group of licensed clinicians who speak English, Spanish & Spanglish! If you don't know where to start, or words to describe what you feel, we know that seeking help can feel scary, especially if no one in your circle "goes to therapy". Please know you're not alone - we are here to help. We work with our clients to identify how past experiences and current mindsets may be affecting relationships, jobs, health and overall quality of life. This includes 'talk therapy' and also EMDR which is different from regular therapy but it can be especially helpful for trauma, phobias, addiction, depression and anxiety.

If you are reading this, you have been contemplating potentially attending therapy. So, let’s answer THE question right off the bat- Why do people go to therapy? One way I like to put it is that people go to therapy when their minds and body are not connecting. For example- your mind wants to “move on” or “focus,” but your body has all sorts of feelings. Sound a little familiar? Another reason one would come to therapy could be to regain some sense of control or to build self-trust with themselves.

Are you feeling stuck? Struggling to survive the death of a loved one? Dealing with difficult relationships? Feeling anxious? Troubled by anger? Confused? Overwhelmed? Self-sabotaging? There are many factors that shape our thinking and affect our decision making. There are times when we don't understand why things happen or we're left to deal with unfair difficulties in life. There is no shame in seeking guidance or support. By building on your own strengths and the power of a therapeutic relationship, I can help foster self-discovery, authenticity, and coping skills that can help you work through these challenges.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
