I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. It is based on the idea that a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected & that changing negative or distorted thoughts/beliefs can lead to improved emotional & behavioral responses. We will set specific goals, identify & work to change negative patterns of thinking, develop coping strategies, & practice new behaviors.
