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

My general approach to addressing a client’s needs in therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT provides a more traditional approach of exploring the impact of thoughts on feelings and behaviors and working to process and manage those thoughts to reduce the impact on our decision-making.

What tools do you teach in cognitive behavioral therapy?

I assist clients in building the following skills to meet their treatment goals:

  • Emotional regulation techniques: To better manage physical symptoms of emotions to promote values-based action as opposed to emotional reaction. Examples include preventative strategies, physical coping skills, and grounding techniques.
  • Cognitive coping skills: To assist with managing automatic thoughts that impact our emotions and to process core beliefs that impact our perception of the world we interact with. Examples include diffusion and the use of a thought record.
  • Acceptance: Working with clients to identify what is outside of their control in the moment and working to shift focus to action on things that they can control.
  • Mindfulness: Helps a client to be better grounded in the present moment, build observation skills of clients' internal and external experiences, and move past their judgments to see things and situations as they are.
  • Communication skill: Promotes appropriate verbalization and reception of needs before they become larger issues.

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

I know clients are making progress in therapy when they demonstrate an increased awareness of the impact of thoughts on their feelings and behaviors, are more frequently engaging in appropriate emotional and cognitive coping skills, and are working to restructure unhelpful core beliefs with the assistance of the therapist.

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

To supplement therapy, clients can practice and implement the skills learned in therapy in their day-to-day lives. It is also important to engage in preventative strategies, such as a regular sleep schedule, healthy diet, appropriate work-life balance, engagement with positive social support, and hobbies, as they can improve our overall emotional well-being throughout the day. While these are not possible all the time, the more we engage with them, the more benefits we receive from that action.

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

To prepare for their first therapy session, all an individual needs to bring with them is an attitude that is honest and open to alternative perspectives and a willingness to try the interventions suggested in the session. It also can be helpful to have a general idea of what the client’s goals for therapy may be. The client should be prepared to answer some general questions about themselves to give the therapist a clearer picture of who they are.

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 Media, PA 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.
