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

I view cognitive behavioral therapy for individual therapy as a confidential safe space to explore oneself from a lens of validation and empathy to lead to organic problem-solving in areas that are no longer healthy for our development as whole human beings.

What tools do you teach in cognitive behavioral therapy?

I believe that self-awareness is our biggest skill and effective communication is our biggest tool. I focus on building self-esteem and self-confidence through empowerment, boundary-building, and conflict-resolution skills.

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

The way I evaluate meaningful progress from a client is when they tell me this work is hard. Nothing worth doing comes easy or is changed in a few sessions. Our brains are lazy…working with a client through changing habits and thought processes takes time, exploration, and practice without judgment.

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

My therapy sessions always end with homework, whether it's literal homework in terms of behavioral charts for example, creative arts, or more existentially around thinking through concerts in between sessions. Therapeutic work, in my opinion, does not happen exclusively in the sessions; it happens outside of sessions. The therapeutic setting is meant to explore concepts on a deeper level to then make the next step of practicing those skills and concepts in between sessions.

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

Making the initial step to set up the session is the most important and most empowering/strengths-based thing someone can do, albeit scary! To prepare for that first intake, remember, you're a rock star already.

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 Glen Burnie, MD 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.
