You are not alone.
Did you know that at least 1 in 5 adult Americans experience a mental illness? That’s right, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, millions of people are struggling with their mental health every day. And it’s not just a minor issue – nearly 10 million Americans are living with a severe mental illness. But that’s not all – approximately 21.5 million Americans face a substance use disorder every year, and countless others report suffering from low self-esteem. It’s time to start talking about mental health and taking action to support those who need it.
Are you struggling with insomnia, chronic pain, anger issues, anxiety disorders, bulimia, psychosomatic disorders, or general stress? These challenges can feel overwhelming, but there is hope. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven effective for these issues and many more. In fact, a recent article in the journal Cognitive Therapy and Research states that “the evidence-base of CBT is very strong.”
So what is CBT?
CBT is a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving that focuses on changing patterns of thinking or behavior that are causing difficulties. By identifying unhelpful thoughts and challenging them in a safe and non-judgmental way, we can train our brains to think differently and improve our overall well-being.
In our sessions, we’ll work together to understand your internal dialogue and identify any counterproductive thoughts or beliefs. We’ll ask questions like, “Is this thought accurate?” and “What would be a more plausible explanation?” By doing so, we can help you develop a more empathic self-image and a better understanding of the reality around you.
My goal is to ease your suffering, improve your problems, and help you live a healthier, happier life. With CBT, you can overcome your challenges and achieve your goals. Let’s work together to make it happen!
