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 Jacksonville, 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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Jacksonville, FL (West)—Therapists and Counselors

Danny feels like the world is against him this week. It all started when he stopped to get gas, only to realize he left his wallet at home. “Of course, this always happens to me.” Because he had to turn around to retrieve his wallet, he was late to work and was criticized for it. “This isn’t fair. None of this is my fault!” Danny takes this negative string of events home with him. His wife asks if he remembered to grab the mail on his way in, and he lashes out at her in response. “The last thing I need right now is you pestering me,” he says.

This is a perfect example of how our thoughts rule our feelings and our feelings rule our lives. Danny pitied himself and adapted a negative attitude as a result of his rough morning. He carried this attitude around with him for the rest of the day and even lashed out at loved ones as a result.

“Everyone in a complex system has a slightly different interpretation. The more interpretations we gather, the easier it becomes to gain a sense of the whole.” –Margaret J. Wheatley

Cognitive behavioral therapy helps people conquer their cognitive distortions and adopt a positive attitude instead of a negative one. This is a difficult, yet important goal to achieve. Fortunately, with a cognitive behavioral therapist at Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL, you can do it. Our therapists, counselors, and psychologists will use techniques in cognitive behavioral therapy to help you find a happier, healthier being. To schedule your first appointment, reach out at (904) 567-7203. We’ll be here.

How Can Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Help Me?

Think back for a moment to the example above. If Danny had assumed a positive attitude instead of a negative attitude and negative thoughts, how would that have changed how his day unfolded? To be more specific, what if Dale engaged in a different way of thinking the second he realized he forgot his wallet? Instead of pitying himself and asserting that bad things always happen to him he could have laughed it off: “Well, bad luck strikes again! But it’s okay.” This undoubtedly would have improved the rest of his day moving forward.

We get it: It’s easier to turn to the bad rather than look for the good. But we also know that rewiring your brain to find the positive will prove beneficial to your life in its entirety. And fortunately for you, there are cognitive behavioral therapists at Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL who can help you achieve this rewiring! In doing so, you’ll be better prepared to…

  • Defeat illnesses like anxiety and depression
  • Grieve a loss properly
  • Work through addiction

  • Find greater career success
  • Grow personally

Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.
