What makes CBT so great?
It’s goal focused: We work toward a specific outcome. Even if we venture off in to other parts of your life, we always have our primary goal in mind.
It’s solution focused: You’re here to solve a problem, perhaps many of them. Our work is geared toward helping you deal with you biggest pain points so you can live the life you want.
It combines talking with strategies: Talking, venting, and unloading are key. You have to get all of those bottled up thoughts and emotions out. However, to make progress, you also need tools and strategies to help you deal with struggles in a new way.
We partner with you to figure out what you need during the therapy session and in your day to day life to increase your chances for success.
