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

At the beginning of treatment, the CBT therapist takes an “educator role” to help clients understand and learn more about their condition (psychoeducation). Clients benefit from psychoeducation because they gain more insight and awareness about their problems and they can also feel validated “ I am not the only person going through this”

What tools do you teach in cognitive behavioral therapy?

Identifying and challenging cognitive distortions, decatastrophizing, exposure, progressive muscle relaxation.

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

I know a client is making progress when we see a decrease of frequency and intensity on the initial symptoms.

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

Every client is different, some people might need to supplement therapy with medication, other people might need a self help group, other people might need to do life styles changes.

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

Clients need to be ready with pen and paper because these approaches are skills-based, this means that clients must practice outside of treatment the tools learned.

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 Fort Lauderdale, FL 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.

I recently switched from "Doctors On Demand" to "Thriveworks." I am seeing both a psychiatrist and a talk therapist. Both have thus far been exceptional. My psychiatrist is thorough in evaluating how medications are effecting me and advising possible alternatives if we need to reconsider a course of action. I appreciate his holistic approach to my treatment, probing how diet and other lifestyle choices may impact my emotional well being. My talk therapist listens carefully to me, shares a central theme that emerges from our session and recommends exercises that help delve deeper into issues that impact my ability to cope and thrive. I amvery happy with their service. Thank you.

Pedro is an excellent clinician who's primary concern is his clients wellbeing. He goes above and beyond to provide the best clinical care for his patients, and creates an individualized treatment plan to help assist with their specific needs. The clinical world is far better off having someone like this practicing in the field.
