CBT Therapy is used by our therapists to help people understand the thought distortions that interfere with their ability to be present in daily activities. Thought distortions are comprised of self talk that contributes to a person’s feelings of being overwhelmed. Some are more causally based, such as being at work, and believing if one person disapproves of your work, that everyone must believe you are a failure. Or thought distortions that are very fantastical, such as the fear that something bad will happen to you or someone you love without any ecological validity. Thought distortions, like people, come in all different shapes and sizes. CBT therapy is designed to help you identify the thought distortions that might be most salient to the disruption of your daily functioning, and by partnering with a therapist, understand the underlying experiences and core beliefs activating your thought distortions.

We maintain the largest selection of Social Workers, Counselors, and Marriage Therapists, to meet every need.
An average person’s life span includes many transitions that result in uncertainty and growth pangs. Whether it involves transitioning from high school to college, or birth of a new child, these life transitions can leave individuals feeling confused and overwhelmed. There are many influences to feeling unequipped to handle the demands of a new stage of life. Some common antagonizers to adapting well are “should statements” such as “I should know what to do,” or expectations “I have to succeed in this new role.”
The demands of life today are much greater than when life was simpler to maintain. The day of owning a small single family home, with one parent being at home, and affording the inflated cost of living on working wage is over. Individuals are tasking themselves with striving for bigger, most efficient and usually more expensive everything. As a result, the pressure to succeed is higher, and people are struggling to find their purpose. Over time, the stress that dumps into the system of life transitions: going from single to married, or single again- a new career, a retired career, birth of a child, without proper insight of one’s liabilities and assets results in chaos and confusion. Partnering with one of our therapists will result in a greater insight into all the stages before the current life transitions and how those stages prepared your, or failed to prepare you for what is being asked of today. Critically analyzing your beliefs systems around: family life, spirituality (or religion), world of work, gender or sexuality, and expectations on life can help you find greater satisfaction. While, also provide a foundation for change driven towards manifesting what also needs to be.
