Clinical Psychologist in Woodinville, WA
The first stage of CPT consists of education about PTSD and helping you make the connection between thoughts and feelings. In the second stage, we work on learning to evaluate and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns. In the final stage, I will guide you in challenging your thoughts in three areas: self, others, and the world. Through practice, you will learn to replace or change your unhelpful thinking patterns related to the traumatic event with more realistic and helpful beliefs.
ET is a CBT approach that identifies situations that cause anxiety and have led to avoidance in a way that causes problems in your life. We will systematically engage in exposures to these uncomfortable situations to gain corrective learning experiences. ET can be delivered alone or in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
CBT a short-term, present-oriented therapy based on research that has shown a strong relationship between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
