Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy emphasizes 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 their thinking.

CBT has been clinically proven to help clients in a relatively short amount of time with a wide range of disorders, including depression and anxiety. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often involves homework assignments. Our therapists then help the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that stem from them.

The team of professionals at Guided Grace, Family and Youth Services offers a wide range of therapeutic services for patients of all ages. We want to help our patients achieve optimal mental health by providing a therapy plan best suited to their needs. Our specialists can determine which method offers you the most benefit and gives you the best chance of success.
