What is your go-to approach for cognitive behavioral therapy?

One of my go-to approaches for helping people is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This method employs techniques to assist clients in recognizing and confronting distorted beliefs that could affect their overall well-being. Through CBT, clients develop heightened self-awareness, enabling them to better regulate the beliefs influencing their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

What tools do you teach in cognitive behavioral therapy?

I frequently utilize the CBT triangle as a valuable visual aid, showcasing the structure and dynamics of the ego personality. This tool assists clients in integrating these insights into their daily routines. The triangle helps emphasize to clients that their unconscious beliefs serve as the blueprint for their lives. These unconscious beliefs give rise to subconscious emotions, conscious thoughts, and ultimately, their actions/interactions/behaviors. With this awareness, clients can begin to reframe unhelpful beliefs and detach themselves from those beliefs that do not serve their well-being.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in cognitive behavioral therapy?

I can observe a client's progress through cognitive behavioral therapy as they become increasingly aware of their deeply rooted unhelpful beliefs and actively challenge them with more beneficial beliefs. They start grasping the impact of their personal perspectives on life and acknowledge their capacity to select which perspectives to prioritize. A client on the path of progress begins to cultivate entirely new positive and inspiring belief systems within themselves.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement cognitive behavioral therapy?

Clients can enhance their cognitive behavioral therapy experience by practicing mindfulness and staying present with their feelings. They can see these emotions as signals pointing to unhelpful beliefs. In this process, clients can write down these unhelpful beliefs to gain insight into what is ingrained in their belief system and then focus on restructuring them.

What should someone do to prepare for starting cognitive behavioral therapy?

Clients can prepare for their cognitive behavioral therapy session by researching the CBT triangle and comprehending its structure. Delving deeper, clients can then begin to integrate aspects of their lives into the CBT triangle, gaining a clearer understanding of how everything interconnects.

Starting Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

What is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)?

At Thriveworks, Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widely recognized and evidence-based form of psychotherapy or talk therapy. It focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors that can contribute to various mental health issues or challenges that people are struggling with.

What does a cognitive behavioral therapist do?

Cognitive behavioral therapists specialize in Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and can help you to identify and comprehend your thought patterns, which often encompass automatic negative thoughts, cognitive distortions, and self-defeating beliefs. Once these negative thought patterns are pinpointed, cognitive behavioral therapists aim to challenge and replace them with the objective of fostering more constructive and logical thinking. In addition, these therapists place significant emphasis on implementing positive behavioral changes based on the newly established, healthier thought patterns.

What is CBT best for?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is particularly effective for addressing conditions like anxiety disorders, depression, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. It focuses on identifying and modifying negative thought patterns and behaviors, making it well-suited for issues related to distorted thinking and emotional regulation.

How much does a CBT session cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, meaning many of our clients only pay a small $0-$50 co-pay. However, we have self-pay options, too. For those out-of-network, our therapy and psychiatry services are around $200, depending on the service and location.

What is the success rate of CBT?

The success rate of CBT varies depending on the intentions of the client and their condition(s).

What\'s better: CBT or DBT?

The selection between cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is based on an individual’s unique needs and challenges. CBT is commonly chosen for addressing conditions such as anxiety and depression, whereas DBT is especially beneficial for individuals dealing with borderline personality disorder, emotional regulation issues, and difficulties in interpersonal relationships.

Is CBT conducted in person or online?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with our Thriveworks therapists in Duluth, GA is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How many sessions is CBT?

Generally, CBT is considered a short-term therapy, typically lasting for about 12 to 20 weekly sessions. In some cases, it might extend to around 16 to 20 sessions for more complex issues.

Shame on Thrive works. My partner and I have been seeing a therapist and liked her. BUT both last week and this week we drove to Duluth location (35 minutes from my house), waited in the waiting room, only to find out our therapist wasn’t even there!!! Called to inquire why and basically got no reason. I received both the text message confirming my appointment and the emails. What if we were in crisis??? So disappointed with them.

Working with Eboni has truly transformed my life but also the personal love I have for myself. I’d thought I was need of therapy due to stress from my job. After a few months I realize that I was going to be tackling more than just work issues. Eboni was absolutely phenomenal in her quietness when I needed to see myself and determine the truth behind any problems I was trying to work through. I’m so much better because of it and I’m so happy that I made the decision to start. Though I still have a lot to work on;I can already see a difference and so can everyone else! Thank you Eboni!!

My counselor, Eboni, is amazing and finds different ways using different resources to help me seek better insight. She is highly recommended if you are looking for someone to deal with self-esteem and anger management issues.
