"I use a strengths focused approach to therapy. Moving forward requires a look at what a person is already doing well in addition to the challenges in their lives. My approach includes insight oriented and cognitive techniques which I utilize in my practice. It takes a very strong person to admit they need help and to take the steps necessary to find a therapist who will be the best fit possible. In my view, therapy is teamwork and the therapist and client must work collaboratively for the best possible outcome of their therapy experience."

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Chicago or for a Chicago CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
