Santa Monica Cognitive Behavioral Therapist ~ CBT Santa Monica

Santa Monica CBT


A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes. Ghandi

Research has proven, time and again, that
CBT is a lasting and effective treatment for anxiety, depression and self-esteem problems. We all hold beliefs about ourselves, others and the world around us and these beliefs often dictate the way we feel.

Depression and anxiety can stem from processing information through a lens of biased, irrational beliefs about yourself. Examples of common irrational beliefs are "I am worthless," "I will never get better," "Love will never happen to me," and "There is something wrong with me." These beliefs may become self-fulfilling prophecies if left unchecked.

Cognitive Restructuring


Effective
therapy actually alters the chemicals in your brain and rewires your neural pathways, transforming the way you process information about yourself and the world. As a cognitive behavioral therapist, I examine how your irrational thoughts and core beliefs may be contributing to depression, anxiety and relationship problems. I use cognitive restructuring and other cognitive behavioral techniques to challenge and transform these beliefs so that you experience peace and freedom.

Behaviors can also influence the way we feel. Using CBT, I will also examine the behavioral component of your feelings and explore
practical ways that your actions and behaviors can contribute to the process of healing and restoration. You can learn more about the evidence supporting Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other psychotherapy from the following article: Evidence Is In: Psychotherapy Changes the Brain.
