Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps patients become aware of unhelpful thinking patterns that affect behavior. It's often used to treat OCD, depression, PTSD and eating disorders. If you think you could benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy, come to Serenity Mental Health Services. You'll work with a therapist to develop more productive and helpful ways of approaching challenges.
We can provide therapy for individuals and couples. To get more information about cognitive behavioral therapy, call us now. We're accepting new patients from Hutchinson, MN and the surrounding McLeod County area.
The main focus of cognitive behavior therapy is addressing mental distortions, or negative thinking patterns. You may benefit from this type of therapy if you suffer from:
- Black or white thinking - Do you think in extremes? Is something either good or bad? Are you either a success or a failure?
- Overgeneralization - If you fail at one task, do you assume that you’re hopeless at all related tasks?
- Personalization - Do you have an issue with taking things personally? Do you tend to blame yourself for problems outside of your control?
If you’re experiencing any of these mental distortions, you should consider CBT. Contact us today to make an appointment with a therapist.
