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 Cherry Hill, NJ 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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is one of the most empirically researched therapeutic approaches that emphasizes one’s self-thought process and psychological distress that disrupts the cognitive processes in changing the way one thinks resulting in a positive healthy change in behavior and affect. In other words, this therapy acts upon psychological distress in reducing destructive behaviors caused by the distress and over the course of treatments, an individual will be able to identify new ways of reacting to difficulties that may trigger the negative behaviors impacting the patient’s daily life.
CBT is effective when working in family, couples and group settings. It’s also commonly applied when working with children, adolescences and individuals with depression and anxiety disorders. This approach results in positive behavioral changes due to collaborative therapeutic relationship between client and counselor, in which the individual plays an active role in and out of the session. Since CBT does promote independency of the client, individuals are expected to complete assignments on their own time, such as writing journals, using relaxation techniques, distraction from the stimulus and breathing control to name a few. CBT incorporates homework assignments that focus on changing the individual’s self-thoughts, and perspectives. It helps identify what is realistic, true and rational.
CBT has been used in treatments such as:
- Sleep Disorders
- Substance Abuse
- Eating Disorders
- Anxiety Disorders
- Chronic Medical Condition
- ADHD Disorder
- Asperger’s Disorder
