How Does Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Work?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a type of psychotherapy commonly known for the talking that takes place. Generally, the therapist guides the client through various thought exercises, experiments, and role-playing to help the client reframe their thought processes regarding a specific topic. Since CBT addresses the thought processes directly, it can be applied to any issue a client is experiencing. Some common mental health issues we can address with CBT include:
- Anger Issues
- Eating Disorders
After an initial in person session(s), our therapist designs a treatment approach that is specifically tailored to your needs and goals. Based on those specifics, the therapist will lead you through various CBT techniques to help you restructure your thought processes, develop the skills necessary to identify and isolate unproductive or harmful thoughts and cultivate direct action to address these issues when they arise.

Benefits of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
Improved Self Esteem
Cognitive behavioral therapy can help to improve your self-perception. Our therapists will help you analyze the negative thoughts you have surrounding your self-image, demonstrating through self-reflection that these thoughts may not be based on reality. Then, our therapist will help you develop concrete skills to identify when you are having unhelpful thoughts, how they are affecting you, and what you can actively do to switch the narrative in your head.
Healthy Coping Strategies
Cognitive behavioral therapy in NJ can also help you better understand how you react to certain stressors you face daily. Oftentimes, our mood is a direct result of how we think about certain situations, especially stressful situations or situations associated with past trauma. Our therapists will help you identify what is causing you to react a certain way and teach you coping skills for stress management that will help you overcome behavioral challenges.

By using cognitive-behavioral therapy as a tool, our clients are better able to understand themselves. Self-knowledge is essential for coming up with strategies to help improve your communication skills. Our therapists work with you to better understand how you interact with others and why your behavior in the past might have led to adverse outcomes.
