Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) in Garden City, NY

Whether you are dealing with relationship problems or depression, there are ways to treat the behaviors and attitudes surrounding these situations by tapping into a person’s beliefs and thoughts to see how these processes affect their behavior. Many patients have found success with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), which is a goal-oriented type of psychotherapy that helps a person identify certain behaviors and emotions to help them more effectively problem solve issues they are currently facing.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy: Overview

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is a popular approach because it is able to treat a variety of issues that a person may be struggling with in their daily life. If you suffer from extreme social anxiety or you have trouble sleeping, these issues can be managed and treated through CBT techniques. 

What often makes most patients choose CBT is that it is a short-term treatment, taking anywhere from five to 10 months. On average, a client will often come in once a week for a session that could last up to one hour. Through these one-on-one meetings with our psychologist, we can listen to the problems you are having and pinpoint new techniques and ways of tackling them. Some of the principles of CBT, when applied correctly, can greatly improve a person’s quality of life and help them tackle these same issues more effectively in the future.

Cognitive behavior therapy incorporates both psychotherapy and behavioral therapy approaches. We all place significance to certain things and situations in our lives and these feelings often dictate the way we respond to the world around us. Sometimes the behaviors we learn are maladaptive and cause negative emotions or difficulties in life. During your CBT sessions, we are here to customize and tailor your treatment to find your personal needs as our client. Your mental wellbeing is of the utmost importance here at Renee Clauselle Wellness, PC. 

It’s amazing how negative thoughts can dictate how we see the world around us. Negative emotions can even distort what we believe or how we act in response. Those who are depressed may tell themselves that they “Can’t do it” or that “nothing goes right”. These negative thoughts can then feed into daily life and affect their relationships, work or school. Our goal with CBT is to identify these negative thoughts and patterns and help someone readjust their way of thinking to prevent these negativities from persisting.

While negative thoughts are a part of life, being able to identify the root cause can help prevent certain patterns of behavior in the future.
