I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and solution-focused therapy in fun and engaging ways to help gifted and creative kids manage stress, set boundaries, recover from mistakes, and much more! Help your child find happiness, motivation, and confidence by contacting me today.
Is your gifted, creative, or high-performing child struggling with anxiety, stress or confidence issues? Our younger kids can struggle with behavioral issues because they are overstimulated, bored, or just misunderstood in school. Our older teens may be overwhelmed and even have thoughts about self-harm. Our kids have unique stressors related to perfectionism, sensitivity, high pressure, and social relationships. Sometimes these things can make it challenging for them to feel like they belong. Counseling can provide a safe space for our kids and teens to develop emotional regulation, increase their confidence and find happiness.

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.
