How can CBT help?

With an established and trusting client-to-counselor relationship in place, CBT can lead to significant improvements in mental health and quality of life.

Often used in combination with other therapies, CBT is a gentle and effective tool for treating mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD. This popular form of psychotherapy and education changes patterns of thinking, giving clients a better way to manage stressful life situations.

Our counseling services help people identify and become aware of their thoughts and the relationship between feelings and behavior. As negative and potentially harmful ideas are considered and reframed, unhealthy beliefs, concepts, and suspensions are replaced with positive thinking resulting in a sense of control of one’s emotions.

Clarity of mind helps us face our fears instead of avoiding them. By learning to calm one’s mind and body, CBT establishes a model for clear thinking as we prepare for potentially problematic situations and interactions with others.

What to Expect:

Our certified mental health counselors prioritize client needs and preferences, providing guidance and individualized support on the path to hope and healing.

At Hope for Healing, we place and emphasis on present mind state and the happenings in your daily life, rather than the events that have led to the difficulties you may be experiencing. Through CBT we will learn about your history but our focus remains on a positive future state and developing more effective ways of coping with life.

CBT is provided by a licensed social workers after a thorough evaluation. We consider your past experiences with other therapeutic models and establish a treatment plan to address individual needs. Our clients are involved in this process every step of the way, including identifying concerns, goals and expectations.

During CBT sessions we may discuss your mental health condition, identify troubling situations and symptoms, share thoughts about problems, identify negative or inaccurate thinking, and practice techniques for relaxation, coping, resilience, stress management, and assertiveness.

In time, positive thinking and behavioral patterns will become a habit and won’t take much effort.
