Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) is based on the concept that our emotions are based on our thoughts . Our thoughts stem from perceptions that have been shaped by our experience and impact our behavior. If we can identify these thoughts (which are often negative) and examine their source and meaning we may be able to better manage their impact on our emotions and behaviors and move forward. CBT is an evidence based therapy for depression and anxiety.
Our thoughts and emotions, sense of self and feelings of worthiness among other facets of our personhood are molded from our childhood, family relationships and past experiences. In therapy, we explore these areas as needed so that we can develop a better understanding of our present selves.
Mindfulness therapies are varied in their approaches but the overall focus is to provide awareness of our inner self within the context of our environment.
Mindfulness therapies are used to manage stress , help with pain, and sleep problems as well as provide grounding during crisis.
These therapies can be used for gaining insight and self-knowledge which help with problem solving.
Mindfulness therapies are used when they are a match for the patient and circumstance.
We are currently seeing patients through telehealth.
