I have found CBT to be useful in helping clients with a wide range of concerns. It is especially useful when focusing on healing from trauma, anxiety, or depression. CBT is based on the idea that when something happens, we have thoughts about it, resulting in feelings and actions. The best part of CBT is that it teaches you skills to use to help yourself so that you are not dependent on therapy forever!
