What is CBT?


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative, present-focused treatment that focuses on changing patterns of thinking, behavior, and emotional responding that are associated with distress. In CBT, clients learn techniques to recognize and change these patterns to improve daily functioning and life satisfaction.
