Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

PROGRAM UPDATE: Due to high internal demand we are not accepting external referrals at this time.

Based on the work of Aaron Beck, CBT emphasizes the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This 8 - 10 week group will assist individuals to develop strategies to manage previously overwhelming situations thereby increasing their self-awareness and reducing their symptoms. The co-facilitators will encourage and provide opportunities for individuals to develop a practice of using cognitive and behavioral strategies and tools in a supportive group setting. Please note: No waitlist is held for this group.
