cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Fort Lauderdale & Coral Springs

You’re looking for therapy that will help you address your struggles and achieve your goals.

Sometimes, you feel like you’re getting in your own way. Perhaps, your anxiety, depression, and/or addiction is holding you back from feeling happy and secure.

 

Or maybe, you struggle with poor self-esteem and that makes you doubt your worth and choose unhealthy relationships. Your negative thoughts have taken a toll on your ability to lead a fulfilling life. For example, they may be causing you to struggle at home, at school, or at work, and they may be impacting your relationships with family, friends, or significant others. 

 

Often times, you find yourself quickly assuming the worst in a given situation. Or you catastrophize a small problem so it seems much worse than it actually is. When you do this, your life feels overwhelming, uncomfortable, and just plain exhausting. 

 

Perhaps, you’ve tried to numb the pain by engaging in risky behaviors or simply pushing it far from your mind. But, this doesn’t work long-term. In fact, it just makes things worse. Your troublesome thoughts just keep coming back, sometimes stronger than before.

 

You know that you can't keep going like this and that something needs to change. You’re looking for effective ways to cope with distress so you can move forward towards happiness, peace, and fulfillment. You don’t want stress to completely derail your day, much less your week or your month.

You Don't Have to Let Negative Thoughts Derail Your Day...

If you’re struggling with negative thoughts that make you upset or ruin your day, you may benefit from working with a therapist who is trained in providing Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).

 

Cognitive behavior therapy is a therapeutic treatment approach used to treat a variety of mental health concerns including:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Substance abuse

  • Panic disorders

  • Eating disorders

  • Low self-esteem

  • Relationship concerns

  • Poor anger management

  • Impulsivity and poor decision making

 

CBT works to help you identify negative beliefs that are holding you back from happiness or success. Then we work to challenge these beliefs and replace them with ones that are positive and helpful. For example, if you always find yourself assuming the worst, then we would work to change that and increase your ability to accept and extend empathy towards yourself and others. 

 

By helping to identify and change these negative, unrealistic thinking patterns, you will begin to notice changes in your behaviors. This may allow you to make better choices, improve your self-esteem, and minimize symptoms of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, etc. 

Feel More in Control of Your Thoughts and Confident in Your Relationships

One major component of CBT is learning positive coping skills to help you better manage distress when it inevitably occurs in your life. Because, when you can successfully cope with challenging thoughts, emotions, or situations, you will feel more confident in yourself which will improve your mental health and give you the courage to pursue goals you previously thought unattainable. 

 

We also teach our clients mindfulness skills. Mindfulness means being accepting of and present in the current moment. This helps you focus on what’s happening right now and the things that are causing you distress. It also helps you identify patterns and recurring triggers that may be causing your problematic behaviors so you can set goals, make changes, and move forwards to overcoming these issues. 

CBT can also help you better manage your relationships with friends, family, co-workers, and significant others. Instead of spiraling into a sea of anxious thoughts and behaviors, you'll be able to better manage the challenges life throws your way.
